Pandora announced that J Balvin will put on a performance for Pandora LIVE el Pulso and it is FREE. J Balvin himself said he will perform songs from his latest album Jose, along with some of our favorites on the October 13 event. In a video posted to Pandora’s social media, they also are touting surprise guests and more in this must-see event.

The virtual event with Balvin is the latest in a series offered by the streaming service’s popular virtual series. In fact, Pandora has teamed up with SiriusXM for “Small Stage Series.” Musicians from all genres are featured including R&B, rock, and pop. 

The show, which was already recorded, was hosted by Johnny “El Picoso” from SiriusXM’s Caliente (ch. 158) and filmed in front of a small audience in Brooklyn. Those who scored a seat to the intimate performance report that J Balvin and Johnny play a game of “Hot Seat.”

“I’m so grateful to Pandora for the opportunity to play in front of my fans again,” said Balvin. “Being able to share new music with the people that support my art means more than anything to me and I’m so happy to be able to do that once more. For those who couldn’t be there in person I hope you enjoy!”

Clearly, J Balvin has punched the “on” switch for performing live. He has hit Vegas in the last month and currently, he is prepping for his iHeart Fiesta Latina performance on the 16th. It’s all leading up to his Jose tour kicking off next year in support of his latest album. An album that by the way has multiple tracks on Pandora’s Top Spins Chart. That adds to his 4.8 billion lifetime stream and five Latin Grammy awards. 

So, tell Siri to RSVP for the FREE event here.  Tell her that it’s happening on October 13 at 9 p.m. EST at If you can’t make the live performance you can catch it on SiriusXM’s J Balvin Radio (ch. 104) and Caliente (ch. 158) channels on Wednesday, October 13 at 10:00 pm ET via satellite and on the SXM App with multiple rebroadcasts throughout the week.
