J Balvin has dropped off his sixth studio album, Colores. The LP marks the GRAMMY nominee’s first release since 2019’s Oasis with Bad Bunny and his first solo effort since 2018’s Vibras, and features the vibrant work of Takashi Murakami as the album art. Enlisting guest features from Mr. Eazi and Sky Rompiendo, the Colombian reggaeton artist also includes production from DJ Snake and Afro Bros, Justin Quiles and Diplo.

“The idea of making Colores came to me in a moment of leisure,” Balvin said in a press release. “I was calm and I got the idea of naming the album Colores. And I thought… ‘Why not name each song after a color?’ Each person will have their own perception of each color [in] the album. Maybe they can close their eyes and [‘Rojo‘] isn’t red to them, but blue.”

Balvin offers different themes with each track, reflecting his personal perspective of each color. While yellow may inspire happiness and pink a more sensual feeling, blue is a reminder of the Caribbean sea and green of prosperity. There’s also the Mr. Eazi-assisted track “Arcoiris” — translating to rainbow — that symbolizes “union, inclusion, love, happiness, good vibes, tolerance and life.”

Stream J Balvin’s Colores on Spotify and Apple Music, and watch the visual for “Amarillo” below. While you’re at it, take a listen to his visual album Colores Experience and enjoy a guided meditation lead by the singer himself.
