J. Balvin is the stage name of José Álvaro Osorio Balvín, from Medellín, Colombia. Balvin is a reggaetone singer whose polished urban singles and bestselling albums have made him a top tier Latin pop artist. He became interested in music at a young age while listening to rap, champeta, bachata, and reggae on the radio. He was also a big fan of music videos; it was from these that he began to develop his dance moves and cultivate his own style. He signed to EMI Columbia in 2009 and released his first single, "Ella Me Cautivó," which charted at 35 on the U.S. Tropical chart. This was followed by the release of the full-length Real in 2010. Balvin contributed four tunes to the soundtrack of the Tim Bulot film El Negocio. All of them charted, including "En Lo Oscuro," which hit the top spot in his native country. Balvin was a featured vocalist on the Colombian version of Robin Thicke's smash single "Blurred Lines," which was issued in October of 2013, just prior to his own second album, La Familia. All four singles from the album charted in Colombia's Top Ten, and "Yo Te Lo Dije" hit at number two on the rhythm chart and number nine on the Latin pop chart in the U.S. The collection B-Sides appeared in September of 2014, featuring two more radio chart-topping singles in "6 AM" and "Ay Vamos." ~ Thom Jurek
