Colombia’s multi award-wining reggaeton superstar J. Balvin saw his debut album “Real” go gold over the weekend.
The reggaeton hit machine was given the award by the president of EMI music Colombia, making him the only Colombian urban music artist to have an album go gold.
The award winning album contains such hot tracks as “Ella Me Cautivo,” “Sin Compromiso,” “Extasis,” and “Obra de Arte,” among others.
In addition to seeing his album go gold, J Balvin is also the recording artist with the highest number of digital downloads in Colombia, according to news source El Satelite.
It seems there’s no stopping the reggaeton hero, who recently released the video for his latest hit single “En el Oscuro.”
J. Balvin, one of the most important reggaeton artists in the country, has told fans he is “ready to take on the world” and that he hopes to one day be reggaeton’s answer to greats like Jay Z.
To have his album go gold means that “Real” has sold over 500,000 copies.
