Surprise! Maluma’s baby is his new album ‘7 Days in Jamaica’ (Listen)

That baby Maluma was teasing on social media is a surprise album. In honor of his birthday today (Jan. 28), the Colombian superstar released his new album 7 Days in Jamaica album and mini-movie.

That Maluma baby is actually an album.

During the past week on Instagram, Maluma was posting photos that made it seem like he was a father to be. The posts included the hashtag #7DJ, which fans are now discovering stands for his album 7 Days in Jamaica. The new 7-track release was inspired by a trip that Maluma took to Jamaica over a year ago.

“Those seven days in Jamaica came at a time when I needed to escape and decompress as I had intensely worked non-stop on my career for seven years and I was questioning if I should even continue doing music,” Maluma said in a statement. “I did a lot of soul-searching there and came back a different person, completely inspired, and having realized that music is not just what I do, it’s part of who I am; how I experience and interpret life.”

There’s also a 7 Days in Jamaica mini-movie to go with the album.

The album also arrives with a mini-movie that was produced in Jamaica and L.A. by 36 Grados, the team behind J Balvin’s vibrant “Mi Gente” video. The seven songs are tied together to tell a story of Maluma falling in love with a Jamaican woman, from when she captivates him in a club to the tender moments they share. By the end, she disappears and Maluma, in a Back to the Future-like moment, shoots his past self to avoid going through that heartbreak again.

On the 7 Days in Jamaica album, Maluma blended that reggaeton sound that made him popular with elements of reggae and dancehall music. He collaborated with Jamaican artists like Ziggy Marley on “Tónika” and Charly Black on “Love.” From the new songs, the standouts are the bubbly bop “La Burbuja” and super sensual “Chocolate.”

Maluma is hosting the Music & Art Meet – Sustainable Exhibition with artist Federico Uribe.

Maluma is also hosting a #7DJ album pop-up in Miami from now until Feb. 28 in Wynwood, Miami. Fans will be able to attend the pop-up during its run, abiding to COVID-19 compliant rules, or they can stream the event online. The album art portrait by Frederico Uribe that’s made up of recycled materials will be auctioned off there. Proceeds will go to environmental non-profits presented by Maluma’s own El Arte de Los Sueños foundation.

Carlos Rivera has finally announced the release date for his upcoming album and tour documentary Crónicas de Una Guerra. Ahead of his Premio Lo Nuestro performance, the Mexican pop star revealed that both projects will drop this month.

The hit tour lasted from 2018 to early last year with 128 stops going through the U.S., Latin America, and Spain.
