Surprise! Maluma's got a brand-new album, and at 22 tracks long, it's an all-you-can-hear buffet, courtesy of Papi Juancho. The new LP takes its title from Maluma's Colombian nickname, a figure that also serves as his alter ego. And musically, Papi Juancho runs the gamut from silken Latin trap&B to bustling reggaeton and chiming escapist jaunts to Hawaii, Madrid, and more.
Papi Juancho's long journey features plenty of guests along for the ride, leaning heavy on artists that have inspired him throughout his career. The list includes Zion, Randy, Yandel, Lenny Tavarez, Justin Quiles, Myke Towers, Ñengo Flow, Jory Boy, Ñejo & Dálmata, and Darell. But this is still Maluma's show, and his charismatic croon carries carries breezy cuts like "Perdón" as well as raunchier, trill-heavy romps like "Booty."
