J Balvin Celebrates His First VMA Win in Japan: Watch


Superstar J Balvin won his first-ever MTV VMA on Monday when “Mi Gente,” with Willy William, won best Latin video.

Although J Balvin was not present at the ceremony, he did watch Willy William picking up his Moonperson from his hotel room in Japan. In fact, he was able to record the moment to share with all his fans on Instagram. "We won our first VMA!" he wrote.

In addition to the best Latin video prize, Cardi B's "I Like It" — featuring Balvin and Bad Bunny — also took home song the summer.
