MALUMA × #7DJ

Global Latin music idol MALUMA celebrated his 27th birthday by surprising fans with the release of the new visual album #7DJ (7 Days in Jamaica). The project consists of seven interconnected songs and videos which take us on an audiovisual journey as Maluma explores the heart of Jamaica, letting go of the trappings of fame and connecting with a new reality renewed by the Island through its people, music, and spirit of freedom.

For #7DJ, the versatile, ever-evolving singer/songwriter takes his sound in a completely unexpected new direction by fusing Latin urban music with reggae and dancehall, collaborating with renowned Jamaican artists Ziggy Marley and Charly Black, and incorporating traditional Jamaican musicians and live instruments (trumpets, saxophone, bass, drums). While each track has a distinct style, they are all seamlessly interconnected; the result is a Latin-urban-world music masterpiece that is as refreshing and magical as the journey that inspired it.

The #7DJ visual album concept was born more than a year ago on a seven day trip the artist took with his close friends and longtime music collaborators to Jamaica, a place he had dreamed of visiting since he was a child. He was able to immerse himself in the island life and sounds while spending time writing and collaborating and creating new connections and fusions every day on a trip that he describes as life-changing.

“Those seven days in Jamaica came at a time when I needed to escape and decompress as I had intensely worked non-stop on my career for seven years… causing me to question if I should even continue doing music. I did a lot of soul-searching and came back a different person, completely inspired and having realized that music is not just what I do, it’s part of who I am; how I experience and interpret life,” expressed Maluma.

#7DJ was produced by Edgar Barrera “Edge”, Johany Alejandro Corral “Nyal” and The Rude Boyz (Kevin “ADG” Jimenez and Bryan Lezcano “Chan El Genio”) with all the songs written by Maluma (Juan Luis Londoño) with Edgar Barrera, Vicente Barco, Johany Corral “Nyal”, Kevin Jimenez, Bryan Lezcano, Miky La Sensa, Ziggy Marley and Charly Black, among others.

Shot in Jamaica and Los Angeles, 36 Grados produced the short film comprised of seven interconnected videos that make the album an audio-visual adventure. To watch it click HERE.

The #7DJ album cover is an image created by Colombian artist Federico Uribe, renowned for using recycled materials to create life-like sculptures and art pieces. The artwork created from pieces of discarded plastic is a stunning portrait of Maluma that will be auctioned off with 100% of the proceeds going to environmental non-profits presented by Maluma’s foundation El Arte De Los SueÑos.

With the concept of executing a pop-up, sustainable art exhibit in Miami for the release of #7DJ, Maluma chose seven other Uribe art pieces made with everyday materials that represent each song of the album. The show is open to the public for a month, and will be streamed for everyone around the world to visit virtually. A portion of the proceeds from each sale will benefit the following non-profits based in Colombia: Fundación Amigos del Mar, Jardín Botánico de Cartagena and Stand Up Providencia.

With over 23 million Facebook fans, 6 million Twitter followers, and a whopping 56 million Instagram followers, Maluma is the leading Latin male artist on Instagram, and the first and only one to surpass 50 million followers. His official YouTube/VEVO channel has more than 26.8 million subscribers, having earned him a YouTube Diamond Play Button Award.

With his Maluma World Tour he has achieved unparalleled success, having sold over one million tickets in 105 worldwide concerts in 2017 alone, and becoming the top concert-selling Latin artist in the world. In 2018 and 2019, he broke records achieving full houses in all of his shows throughout the United States and Europe, selling out Madison Square Garden (New York), the American Airlines Arena (Miami), and two The Forums (Los Angeles), among others. With his 11:11 World Tour he also sold out Israel’s largest venue, Yarkon Park in Tel Aviv (60,000+ audience); made history at the 18th annual Mawazine Festival in Rabat, Morocco, setting an all-time attendance record with his headlining concert in front of 200,000 people; and performed for the first time ever in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in front of 25,000.

In 2018, Maluma entered the fashion scene with his edgy, youthful and authentic look, and style. He has been named a “Menswear Icon in the Making” and “Men’s Fashion’s Newest Muse” by Vogue. In addition, he was one of GQ’s “Men of the Year” in 2019 and continues to gain the fashion support of designers such as Kim Jones (Dior), Jeremy Scott (Moschino), Olivier Rousteing (Balmain), Donatella Versace, Calvin Klein, Christian Louboutin, Louis Vuitton and more. In 2019, he attended the Met Gala for the first time, being one of the first Latin urban artists of this generation to be invited by Anna Wintour.

To date, Maluma has had twenty #1 singles on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart.

Adapting to the new norm- with top model and TV personality Simonetta Lein.

While the pandemic has made our lives grim and boring, top model and influencer Simonetta Lein recent shoot with designer Steve Boi and her crew was a breath of fresh air. Taking care of all precautions and protocols, it was refreshing to shoot in the Philadelphia summer sun, wearing the lively colors by The Confessional Showroom NY, and shooting for the the SK8T collection like a rockstar. “Back in January when I did my latest major photoshoot, little did I know that our lives would have been challenged to the point that continuing with my normal activities would have become so difficult.

Being able to do a photoshoot during a quarantine was very challenging and at the same time so rewarding, like winning a World Cup championship.” said icon Simonetta Lein. After being named this year as one of the top 5 most powerful women in fashion together with Anna Wintour, Donna Karan, DVF and Vera Wang she recently have been awarded as one of the top 9 power women in the world by USA Today. This powerhouse continued to film her TV show – The Simonetta Lein Show via BOLD TV – despite the odds of this current time.

“I started in February going to the studios in NY and right after the world collapsed. No more studios, and it seemed no more TV show. I had to re adapt and find new ways with my team and I was able to continue with the production via remote, reaching amazing A list celebrities such as Jay Shetty, Kim Sledge, Kevin Sorbo, Robert Davi and many more. I just recently went back to the studios interviewing Fox News contributor Tyrus, actor Leon and actor Sean Kanan. What a great feeling to be back!”

Definitely Simonetta is teaching us two main things that you need to have in order to succeed during testing times – A Positive Outlook and Resilience. “I thank my team for trusting my vision- the production manager Raphael Anthony Amabile, the photographer Nicole Tienken @nicole.tienken.photo, the makeup artist Staci Hardy @blumahogany, the hairstylist @aronstyle, the hair colorist Kristin Jewell @jewello_ and my incredible designer the African American icon Stevie Boi @sbshades who made me feel like a true rockstar and @mirimari_fashion through @theconfessionalshowroom that gave me the Oscar vibe of a princess while in quarantine.”

Teen Vogue Will Be Missed

by Victor Wardell 

On Thurs., November 2, 2017 Condé Nast announced that the print component of Teen Vogue will be discontinued.

This brings up questions like why? And, could it have been saved?

Many speculate the cancellation could have resulted from how controversial the magazine has become. Many parents have yet to forgive when Condé Nast published, “A Guide To Anal Sex.”

Teen Vogue has featured some of the biggest teen stars including Justin BieberZendaya, One Direction, Kendall and Kylie JennerDemi Lovato, Rowan Blanchard and Yara Shahid.

Readers don’t fret because you can still catch the new editions online.

We live in a millennial world of technology and Teen Vogue realizes that Generation Z is no longer plastering their tearsheets on their bedroom walls.
