It looks like Maluma is ready to add actor to his resume. The “Felices Los 4” singer has just been confirmed to play Jennifer Lopez’s cheating husband in the new film, Marry Me.
And the Internet let out a collective..uffff.
It’s confirmed that Maluma and Jennifer Lopez, two giant Latino icons, will play alongside each other in a new movie.
Translation: Maluma is on his way to the big screen. He’ll play a Rockstar in “Marry Me” and Jennifer Lopez will be his wife. And there will be a third played by Owen Wilson will be a math teacher.
They’ll be playing an engaged couple in the new film, Marry Me.
The plotline sounds like it has hints of Selena, Lopez’s breakthrough, plus 2018’s A Star Is Born—which recently found another pop star (Lady Gaga) playing a…pop star. And considering Lopez just recovered from an epic power outage at Madison Square Garden in real life, she’s bound to take this role on as a natural.
But since he cheats on her and J.Lo marries someone else…we can’t help but wonder how big Maluma’s part will be.
In it, a pop star (here, played by Lopez) gears up to take the stage and marry her famous fiancé (Maluma) at New York City’s Madison Square Garden—only to find the man being unfaithful with her assistant. As the official description for the movie states, she then proceeds to have a meltdown on stage…and then picks a random guy from the audience (Owen Wilson) to say “I do” to instead.
Some on Twitter were giving a shout out to J Lo for helping get more Latinos on the big screen.
Films, especially big Hollywood films need wayyyy more Latino representation and including a Colombian singer in the mix is a great move on behalf of STX Studios.
After his record with Madonna and collaboration with J Balvin, among others, Maluma is quickly becoming a household name and this role with J Lo will only help propel him to even more success.
While others were just happy (read: thirsty) to see Maluma up there on a big giant screen.
Maluma already gives his fans plenty to see on his Instagram but imagine all of that man up on the big screen?! Yea, we are too.
Stars, they’re just like us, right? I mean kind of. Sure, Maluma is also in self-isolation thanks to the global Coronavirus pandemic. But he’s in quarantine in his hometown of Medellin on his palatial estate and looking better than he’s ever looked. Meanwhile, I’m in quarantine in Mexico City, I’ve put on probably 10 pounds and sometimes more than 24 hours go by before I realize I haven’t even brushed my teeth. So no…stars aren’t just like us.
But I’m glad they’re not because then I get to thirst after Maluma through his very thirsty social media content. Sure, Maluma shirtless isn’t that big of a deal since, well he’s basically always shirtless, but something about him being so almost naked and living his best #quarantinelife is just what I need right now.
Maluma’s 11:11 World Tour had to be put on pause due to the Coronavirus outbreak but he’s been making up for it with some seriously #bts content.
Following the delay of his world tour, Maluma travelled back to his hometown of Medellin, where’s he’s been spending quarantine since mid-March. So for nearly two months now, the reggaetónero has been spending quality time with his family, focused on his health and body (it shows!) and has even released a new single (and video) called “ADMV” – “Amor de mi Vida.”
In a previous interview with Billboard, Maluma said, “I realized I was investing so much energy, so much time in my career that I was forgetting about myself, about my spirit and the important things in life like my family, like finding that love of my life… I’m tired about listening to the same kinds of songs; people talking about diamonds and about Ferraris. There are more important things.”
Maluma has even let fans in on a behind-the-scenes look into his home – and I was living for it.
In the video, presented by Architectural Digest – which Maluma shot himself – the singer calls his home his ‘sanctuary’ and it’s easy to see why. Situated up in the green hills outside of Medellín, his home is gorgeous. He reveals he’s lived there for three years and it’s truly his home.
Even his morning routine left me in giggles as he describes how he wakes up in the morning, descends to the ground level in his private elevator, and makes his very own cup of coffee. Minus the elevator part, very relatable.
Since he’s been spending so much time at home – he’s also been showering his fans with shirtless photos.
With another quarantine week in full swing, Maluma, posing in a steamy shirtless photo, asked fans who was the love of their life. Fans immediately showered the comment section with “you are,” and it’s easy to see why.
Serving smiles and body.
From Instagram lives to mini-photoshoots, Maluma has been keeping himself (and many of us) very busy. He’s helped make this quarantine a little less horrible thanks to his nearly daily dose of thirst trapping – that’s right it’s not just for Thursdays.
Walking the dogs really builds up a sweat.
Maluma has made it well-known that he loves animals – especially his two dogs Bonnie and Clyde. He posts about them frequently and when one of them fell ill – he was heartbroken but thankfully they recovered. Now, we get to enjoy photos of him spending time with two of his best friends – shirtless. I’m here for it.
He even shared a #BTS of his makeup work for the video of ‘ADMV’.
Ok…so this isn’t typically what I thirst after. But it was cool to see some behind the scenes shots of this next level makeup job that left the 26-year-old singer looking twice his age.
And OK this has nothing to do with his quarantine life but it’s too good not to include here.
Shot for this Calvin Klein campaign, Maluma left millions speechless with the full-body, nearly-nude photoshoot.

The Coronavirus pandemic has forced millions of Americans to shelter in place from the safety of their homes. Meanwhile, millions of others are on the frontlines keeping this country running. They’re now known as “essential workers” and they’re made up of healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, fast food attendants, line cooks at local restaurants, janitors, meat processing plant workers, and agricultural workers.
These roles now deemed “essential” all have one thing in common – they employ a higher percentage of immigrant and undocumented workers than most other segments of the economy.
And with Cinco de Mayo happening tomorrow, there is a star-studded event taking place that we all need to show up to – even if we don’t get out of our sweatpants.
Farmworkers and the undocumented community are more vulnerable now than ever – and they need your help.
More than an estimated three million farmworkers are on the frontlines, helping support the global food supply. And they’re doing it during a global health crisis.
About 50% of the agricultural workforce is comprised of undocumented immigrants. Because of the nature of their work, physical distancing is difficult to abide by as is handwashing and other CDC requirements. They’re also missing required protective gear, including masks. All while having to face the constant fear of deportation.
And while the government has stepped up in some ways to help those who have lost their jobs because of the pandemic – they are specifically excluding undocumented workers (even those deemed essential) from receiving federal aid.
And that’s where Altísimo Live comes in!
In an effort to provide for farmworkers throughout the U.S., RetroPop Media and iHeartLatino joined forces to develop Altísimo Live!. Together with the iHeartLatino Chairman and Chief Creative Officer Enrique Santos, Eva Longoria will host this huge, star-studded concert, which will feature some of the biggest Latino artists.
So how do you attend a virtual event?
Altísimo Live is a free event but its organizers are asking for $5 donations from viewers in an effort to support the community. All you have to do. Is text “Cinco” to 91999 or you can donate directly to the Farmworkers’ Pandemic Relief Fund. They hope to raise $3 million to provide care and supplies to farmworkers and their families.
The bilingual event kicks off across the concert’s official social media pages: Facebook Live, YouTube, Twitter, Periscope, and Twitch simultaneously on Tuesday, May 5th at 1 p.m. ET. They’re going to lead the event off with an interactive tailgating experience and then sets of continuous performances. There will even be interactive Q&As between artists and their fans at 8 p.m. ET.
All from the comfort of your own home.
And trust, this is one you’re going to want to tune into.
The long list of celebrities performing includes Maluma, Becky G, Gloria and Emilio Estefan, Jesse & Joy, A.B. Quintanilla III y Los Kumbia Allstarz, Juanes, Luis Fonsi, Nicky Jam, Maná, Ivy Queen, Los Tigres del Norte, Carlos Vives, and Marc Anthony and others. Additionally, Sofia Vergara, J Balvin, Kate del Castillo, Rosario Dawson, and Alejandro Sanz will make appearances.
Fashion designers Mario De la Torre, Carlos Marrero, and Raul Peñaranda, will also join the event to share how they are using their talent and unique designs in support of the pandemic relief effort. Some of their special edition farmworker-inspired designs will be available for purchase in support of the event.
How else can you show love for the community?
So although the event is free, the organizers are looking to raise that $3 million at $5 a person. Incredible! But in addition to donating, you can also show your support for the event by blasting it across your social media using #AltisimoLive, #CincoOnCinco and #SupportFarmworkers.
Some of the event’s proceeds will also benefit Coalition of Florida Farmworker Organizations, East Coast Migrant Head Start Project, NC Fields, La Cooperativa Campesina de California, LULAC of Puerto Rico, La Union del Pueblo Entero in Texas and more.
However, the concert series isn’t just about raising money for farmworkers. It’s also a reminder that they are appreciated and that we as a community have their back.
You can also wear your support on your sleeve!
You can also literally wear your support for farmworkers on your sleeve and help support the event’s organizations. Mitú has launched a womens, mens and kids t-shirt line with the Farmworkers Are Always Essential slogan on them. Twenty percent of the proceeds from the sale of every t-shirt on the Mitú shop will go to the Farmworkers Pandemic Relief Fund.
Tune in to Altísimo Live! on Tuesday, May 5th starting at 10 a.m. PT, 1 p.m. ET.
