BARRIO (Billboard) – Maluma is the latest artist to take on the NPR Tiny Desk for a concert full of his hits and even a tease of his girlfriend’s recent pregnancy announcement.
The Colombian superstar performed songs ranging from “Hawái” and “COCO LOCO” to “Felices los 4” and “Según Quién.” Before “ADMV,” Maluma shared that he wrote the song for a cryptic “someone,” and immediately began tearing up.
The Colombian artist revealed that he and his girlfriend, Susana Gomez, are expecting their first child together via a new music video on Friday (Oct. 20). Titled “Procura,” the song’s clip documents the couple’s relationship with never-before-seen clips, the heartfelt moment they found out they were going to be parents and the lavish sex reveal, when they found out they will be having a girl. The couple also revealed she will be named Paris.
“Music is the only way I can talk to my fans and I wanted to let them know that I’m having a baby,” he said in an interview with NPR Music‘s Alt.Latino. “It’s perfect timing with all of the things that I’m living. I’m looking for more personal experiences too […] I also want to grow as a human being, not only as an artist. This makes me feel so human, but at the same time, the more human I feel, the more artist I get.”
