The urban music scene in Colombia celebrates an unprecedented milestone with the release of 1 Of 1, the first album created by two Colombian urban artists – Maluma, a global icon with multiple awards and recognitions and Blessd, the rising young reggaeton star with a unique style. This duo comes together to create a project that reflects the greatness of each artist and their deep commitment to Colombian culture, from Made in Medellín to the entire globe.
1 Of 1 is more than a product, it’s an accurate portrait of the experiences and daily life in Colombian neighborhoods. Maluma and Blessd captured the reality of the different social classes, the essence of the streets and stories of struggle and perseverance that define their society in each song. “This work will have a very positive impact. We’ve had dreams since we were kids and seeing that they can come true is a source of pride for those who see us as role models,” both artists affirmed.This release is an invitation to dream for all those who, like Maluma and Blessd, have started from the bottom and have faced difficulties to achieve success. It’s also a clear message to new artists to stay motivated and not lose hope.
“A full production between two Colombian artists had never been done before. If it’s the first, it can’t be done twice,” Maluma stated, emphasizing the historical importance of this project. Grateful to Blessd and his team, Juan Luis recognizes how this album has motivated him to reconnect with his essence and show once again who he is as an artist and what made him Maluma.
“Releasing something again with Maluma and being able to make an album together is super dope. It’s the first time two Colombian artists in the urban genre come together to do something as big as this album, and further, to do it in the neighborhood where it all started while expressing many things that Juancho and I share. Friends like Ronaldinho and the world’s #1 jeweler, Jacob & Co., joined us on this journey which is something really special for me, as a new star. Being with these superstars was a dream…Si Sabe,” explains Blessd.
The album comes paired with visuals for “CALL ME,” filmed in the Antioquia neighborhood in Medellín, the artists’ hometown, where we see Maluma and Blessd as friends recounting their adventures of what daily life was like in the neighborhood.
Moreover, 1 Of 1 pays tribute to previous generations of Colombian artists, whose legacy and work have inspired Maluma and Blessd get to where they are today. This album is the continuation of that legacy and of that dedication of those who paved the way for them in this industry.
This album was created with the support and teamwork of the companies behind each artist: Royalty Records, Cigol Music Group, Dímelo Jara Company, Sony Music Latin, Warner Music Latin, who together made history with this top notch production.
