Everyone has a favorite song they can play that will automatically begin to change their mood. J Balvin’s newest album, Colores was curated with a similar concept in mind.
Colors, like music and numbers, are a universal language. This concept is the key idea behind J Balvin’s latest album, Colores (Colors). The entire album was curated with the idea that colors allow us to communicate with one another regardless of the difference in languages. As J Balvin has become known globally, he has amassed thousands of fans who don’t speak Spanish, the primary language used in music. Thus through this album, J Balvin attempts to communicate with all of his fans through this universal language.
Colores contains ten songs all named after a color. Each song is named after the specific moods/feelings that the specific color evokes. J Balvin created a total of 47 tracks for the album searching to pinpoint what track best fit what color. Only ten tracks were chosen for the album. J Balvin hopes that with each track being named after a color his fans will be able to easily identify their favorite song and request it at live shows by simply yelling out the color.
Additionally, J Balvin also hopes to introduce his fans to one of his passions: art. With the album cover being designed by Japanese contemporary artist, Takashi Murakami, J Balvin hopes to introduce his fans to the world of contemporary art. If you haven’t yet listened to Colores, I encourage you to check it out and let me know what your favorite color from the album is!
