It’s been a huge year for J Balvin. First, he graced the stage at Coachella and delivered one of the most talked about performances at the festival (which included an epic tribute to classic reggaeton), then the “Mi Gente” rapper announced his North American “Arcoiris” tour with Lyanno and Eladio Carrion. And now, it seems as if the 34-year old Colombian will make history as the first reggaetonero to appear on Saturday Night Live’s storied stage.

SNL’s Twitter account posted an image teasing Saturday’s season finale guests, which include Balvin, SZA, DJ Khaled, Big Sean, and others. And with an upcoming return to The Tonight Show on Monday May 20th, and another historic appearance as the first Latino artist to headline Lollapalooza (taking place in Chicago from August 1st – 4th), Balvin is on a roll.
Still, with all these historic moments for Balvin and urbano as a whole, as one of the most popular artists on the planet, it would only seem fair that he should get his own episode.
What do you think about this announcement?
