The wait is over! After teasing his fourth studio album, Colores, with addictive album hits, such as No. 1 single, “Blanco,” J. Balvin releases Colores tonight (March 19), along with a visual for “Amarillo.”

Colores comes almost two years after the release of his full-length album, Vibras. For Colores, the Colombian reggaetonero stays true to his sound and style, both creatively and with spirit. “Lu única misión de este álbum [es] dar colores, esperanza, felicidad porque la música es vida,” Balvin shared via his Instagram.

The Colores album cover, creative directed by legendary Japanese artist Takashi Murakami, features ten brand new flower characters, each representing a song and color on the album. “This cover represents dreams because I always wanted to work with Takashi Murakami. Five years ago, I drew a flower and didn’t know he would end up collaborating with me. And what better way to show color than flowers? It was meant to be,” Balvin shared of the collaboration via Instagram.

Earlier this week, J. Balvin earned his 21st No. 1 single, as “Blanco” took the reign of Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart. “I have to thank my fans and my listeners for taking a chance on ‘Blanco,’ a song that was completely different from everything that was out in the genre. I took a big risk going left while everyone was going right but it paid off,” Balvin told Billboard.
