J Balvin will be celebrating Halloween this year on the online game Fortnite. The Colombian superstar announced his virtual show taking place during the Fortnitemares event on Oct. 31.

J Balvin is no stranger to the Fortnite scene. Back in August, music by him, Puerto Rican rapper Bad Bunny, and Cardi B was included in the Fornite Battle Royale Joyride update. Now the reggaetonero is going to enter the world of Fortnite for the first time with a pre-recorded concert.

“Every performance is different,” J Balvin said in a statement. “I have to bring the energy every time I perform, so this is like any other performance in that way. But this has been a different preparation process, knowing that I won’t be able to actually see the fans, so I have to get my headspace right ahead of time and be mindful of what the audience will be seeing when they watch at home. I haven’t been able to perform my album Colores that came out earlier this year yet, so I’m very excited to be doing that now for my fans in this very special way.”

J Balvin also noted that he’s the first Latin music artist to grace the virtual stage of Fortnite. During the concert, he will debut his new collaboration “La Luz” with Panamanian singer Sech. A virtual Sech with Balvin should be a sight to see.

For those looking to catch virtual J Balvin’s show, he will be at the Party Royale stage at 6:30 PM PST on Halloween day. He will be headlining Fortnite’s Fiesta Ultratumba concert.
