EDITORS’ NOTES

Even before the rhythm of reggaetón became a truly global pop phenomenon, Maluma proved himself especially skilled at massaging música urbana for the masses. A hit on multiple continents, the Colombian singer’s risqué “Felices los 4” made a strong case for his potential to bring Latin pop worldwide. Released almost one year to the date after his F.A.M.E. LP, the colossal sonics of 11:11 continue that work with a cross-cultural and intergenerational selection of guests, including seminal veteran Ricky Martin and Medellín urbano great Farina.

With Nicky Jam along for the ride, they drop references to other big Spanish-language singles of this moment on the similarly ambitious “No Puedo Olvidarte.” All but named in that particular song, like-minded boundary pusher Ozuna duets with grace on the dembow ballad “Dispuesto.” Leaving the door graciously open for apprehensive English-speaking listeners, he again matches wits with Madonna on the booming and bilingual “Soltera” and echoes romantic anxiety alongside the coincidentally concerned rap lothario Ty Dolla $ign on “Tu Vecina.” Even without the high-profile features, Maluma justifies his top billing among these players with virtuosic flair as persuasive reggaetonero on “Déjale Saber” and surprise salsero on “Te Quiero.”

🔥🔥🔥

Este álbum es muy bueno, las canciones son finalmente "más como tú" y espero que en el futuro sueltes un álbum que sea incluso mejor que todos los anteriores (especialmente “Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy” porque mis canciones favoritas aún son de eso álbum 🤷🏻‍♀️).
¡Sé lo emocionado que estabas por compartir este álbum con nosotros y tengo que decir que hiciste un gran trabajo! Espero que a la gente le guste tanto como quisieras y que tenga éxito porque te lo mereces! Buena suerte! 💪🏼👏🏼❤️

This album is SO GOOD

Now I don't speak a lick of Spanish, but music like this just transcends the language barrier. I found out about Maluma about a month ago while listening to a local hispanic radio station, and Marinero played. Love it, got F.A.M.E, and I liked it, though some songs stuck out more than others. 11:11, however, is just amazing through and through. Every track is solid and enjoyable, and the album as a whole takes you through so many different styles, effortlessly blending in and out between them. I am completely hooked, and I pray that one day Maluma comes through here so I can see him live.
This is quickly going to become one of my all time favourite albums. Thank you so much Maluma, and all who were involved in making this fantastic album.
