Camila Cabello, Pitbull and J. Balvin brought “The Fate of the Furious” to life at the MTV awards show with their new song “Hey Ma.”
The second Camila landed on stage from the ceiling, audiences knew this “Hey Ma” performance had Miami heat, and Fast & the Furious written all over it. Camila Cabello told MTV news that everyone could expect lots of “latin sass [and] latin power” from the performance, which is exactly what she, J. Balvin and Pitbull brought to the show.
However, a lot of people on the internet mentioned that they wish this trio had performed the Spanish version of the song instead.
What do you think about the performance? Did Camila, Pitbull and J.Balvin deliver? Check out the video and let us know in the comments below.
There is one thing in music that is not up for debate: the Camilizer fandom is one of the strongest. No matter what the pop star is doing, her fans will always show up with full support on social media and irl. That fandom is making power moves again now that Cabello’s new collab “Señorita” with Shawn Mendes is out. In less than 24 hours, the video already had 14 million views.
Camila Cabello got her fandom ready with one tweet and it worked.
Cabello’s Twitter is a powerful tool. When she tweets, her millions of followers listen. It is clear that she has learned how to harness social media for the betterment of her career and it is paying off. Tbh, she kind of deserves the success she has garnered so far. Like, she skipped her quinces so she could audition for the X Factor and the rest is music history.
Cabello stans are here to tell you that “Señorita” is a song that is here to stay.
No one is surprised to hear that Cabello was able to put out a hit. She is proving herself as a powerful musician. We still can’t get “Havana” out of our heads and it has been out for two years.
Like, this is what the Camilizer fandom is doing the rest of the weekend with this song in the background.
Low key, a lot of people will be giving this song all of their streams this weekend. Who wouldn’t want to spend the next couple days bouncing to this song?
People are crying over the new song because they have been waiting for new music.
Take some deep breaths and relax. You don’t want to miss any of the music or video because you can’t see or hear over your own sobs. Is it even worth listening if you are crying so intensely?
Fans had theories about how the singers prepared for their intimate moments on screen.
Obviously, you wouldn’t want to have bad breath when you have to kiss someone over and over again. It is also kind of cute that Mendes was so concerned that he ate mints to make sure he had good breath for Cabello.
The video and the passion between the singers is reigniting speculation that they are secretly more than friends.
Some people might call it good acting and on-screen chemistry. Camilizers call it them sharing their truth while hiding behind the facade of music and the arts. Whichever it is, they know how to make a convincing couple on the screen.
Here is the full video for Camila Cabello and Shawn Mendes’s “Señorita.”
Congrats, you two. Seems like you really did the thing with this video.
Artists are all about expression and experimentation and that is doubly true if you’re J Balvin. This reggaetonero has taken the world by storm and a huge part of his success is definitely because he’s one artist who’s not afraid to be himself and make a statement, whether it’s through his music or fashion.
The Colombian singer, known for his smash hits such as “Mi Gente,” “Ginza” and “Reggaeton,” has used his platform to flaunt his unique style whether it’s through his music, his fashion and especially his hair.
A natural brunette, Balvin has experimented with all sorts of colors and prints – with some looks more successful than others.
In celebration of his inclusive, positive and unapologetic personality, here’s a look at J Balvin’s hair evolution.
Long before there was J Balvin, there was Afro Balvin.
Even after he broke out on the music scene, J Balvin stuck to his ‘roots’ for quite awhile…
The man knows how to work his natural brunette look. And he looks good doing it.
At one point, he took the brunette look to his short and faded look we all know today.
This is the look that he’s built upon with a whole collection of designs. And why not? It’s such a good base cut.
And we can’t forget this unique rainbow-inspired do…
That he played around with around the release of ‘Machika.’ And perhaps it’s what has inspired his ‘Arcoiris’ tour…
Or this neon-green soccer ball one.
I mean that’s pretty amazing.
And from this shaved look, J Balvin has spawned a lookbook of colors, prints, and patterns.
Like this highlighter yellow. Which I’m not sure how I felt about.
There’s been a burnt orange.
Which really started out as a bright orange after the highlighter color from above.
And he loves a hot pink.
Hot pink pops. Especially a highlighter shade like this first one he went with.
He’s even played around with patterns…
Like when he had this tie-dye look in Paris.
But then went back to a different hot pink.
This hot pink, slightly more faded than the first, is a lot less harsh and IMO looks a hell of a lot better.
Before giving us major Lisa Frank vibes during Coachella.
J Balvin owned Coachella and perhaps it was in some part thanks to this amazing hairstyle.
Then he went blonde…
Which I’m totally feeling on him.
But always a sucker for experimentation…
He switched back to some badass tiger stripes, saying in an Instragram post “Yo soy tigre.” Cute.
At first he had it more like a white Siberian tiger…
But a couple of weeks later it was dyed to a more traditional orange-striped tiger.
And now it looks like he’s letting it all grow out.
What will J Balvin do to his hair next?
