Vevo and J Balvin release the official live performances of “Azul,” “Negro” and “Rojo.” J Balvin’s live performance series was announced last week with the release of “Amarillo.”
Vevo live performances are part of a very special series that connects artists to their audiences at scale. Through close collaboration with the artist, Vevo creates visuals to give fans a unique take on the original songs. Khalid, Future, Karol G and Miley Cyrus have all worked collaboratively with Vevo to produce new and original, visually stunning video content offering fans a different retrospect on their music.
“Azul,” “Negro” and “Rojo” come off J Balvin’s new album Colores. The follow-up to his 2018 full-length Vibras, the new album finds the Reggaeton powerhouse going back to his roots, opting for only two features (Mr. Eazi and frequent producer Sky Rompiendo) to showcase the infectious sounds and flows that have made him a household name. The album also arrives just days after J Balvin made history becoming the Latin Urban artist with the most #1 singles on the Latin airplay charts after “Blanco” took the top spot this week. This title, along with Colores, not only cements his status as a leader of Reggaeton but as a torchbearer of the new state of Urbano, Balvin continually expanding the limits of the genre and paving the way for “la nueva escuela.”
The album continues J Balvin’s reign as one of the biggest stars in the world. 2019 saw him perform in the opening segment of The GRAMMY Awards, named the Premio Lo Nuestro “Artist of the Year” for an unprecedented third consecutive time, collect his fourth LATIN GRAMMY and the “Favorite Latin Artist” American Music Award, and saw him become the first Reggaeton artist on Saturday Night Live. Throughout the year, J Balvin also connected with millions of fans live by taking his stunning “ARCOIRIS” (Rainbow) Tour across the United States and throughout the world, while further etching his name in Urbano music history as the first Reggaeton artist to perform on the mainstage at Coachella, leading EDM festival Tomorrowland, and as the first-ever Latin artist to Headline at Lollapalooza. Most recently, J Balvin performed in the Super Bowl LIV halftime show alongside Jennifer Lopez to perform his hit song “Mi Gente,” notches another #1 single, and appeared on the cover of Billboard.
“Azul,” “Negro” and “Rojo” are now streaming. Keep up with exclusive content from artists all over the world on YouTube.com/Vevo.

LISTEN TO MODUS VIVENDI HERE
“A vital new singer makes her debut…an emo-rap Dark Side Of The Moon …Modus Vivendi suggests Enya and Pink Floyd as much as Frank Ocean…the sound of a realist and fantasist sparring, it reflects an artist still coming into focus on her own thrilling terms.”
“Ms. Balbuena’s voice is the record’s most extraordinary feature… The lush sonic backdrop, infused with strings and gentle drones, conveys an ethereal chamber-music setting altogether unusual for hip-hop and R&B.”
“On ‘Modus Vivendi’, she manages to craft a sound that’s anthemic, and built for festivals and clubs; but within the grooves, she’s precise… This is project sculpted away from current trends.”
“A sprawling journey across the emotional spectrum… while adequately booming, there’s a certain intimacy to ‘Modus;’ there are no featured verses — no voice other than Balbuena’s rasping lines across nearly an hour of music… the singularity of this project beams through with unsettling clarity.”
“She is constantly playing with contrasts—raw and smooth, light and dark, harsh and tender—and the songs on Modus Vivendi seem to shift with her mood.”
About 070 Shake
The title of 070 Shake’s debut album is Modus Vivendi — a Latin phrase used to reference a way of life in which two opposing parties can coexist peacefully. Art has always been Shake’s way of life, whether writing poetry as an outlet for depression or crafting playful rhymes about her teammates on bus rides to high school basketball games. “It was an escape for me with all of the frustrations and voices that were going on in my head. I’ve always felt that I had to do something with these words.”
All the way back to her childhood, this individualistic charm has always led the New Jersey-raised talent to stand out. Traditional schooling just wasn’t for Shake. Rather, she stuck out from peers with a natural knack for poetry and a profound love for basketball, even being deemed “Shake” for her crossover dribble. As she grew older, Shake became known for her rebellious nature, constantly causing trouble at school with countless pranks and a disinterest toward academics.
It was during these years, however, that Shake began to hone her artistic identity. From writing poems to falling in love with the cadences and storytelling of artists such as Alicia Keys and Kanye West, she quickly found a desire to start making music. Soon after, Shake began recording in a friend’s studio up until 2016, when the intensely vulnerable song “Proud” caught the ear of the legendary G.O.O.D. Music camp.
Shake signed to the label later that year, transitioning from manning kids’ bouncy castles in New Jersey to working with the likes of G.O.O.D. Music labelmates Kanye West and Pusha T, among others. Come 2018, she released the deeply personal EP, Glitter — a six-track culmination of diverse sounds and genres meant to chronicle the realities of love, depression, substance, and pain. Maintaining the same creativity that once fueled her high school poetry, she began to turn heads in the music world, becoming one of the year’s most talked-about names with her features on several other G.O.O.D. Music releases, namely the soul-stricken outro on Kanye West’s “Ghost Town” and her haunting vocals on Pusha T’s “Santeria.”
Today, in the wake of the release of Modus Vivendi, Shake is focused on bringing her reflective style to the spotlight with boundary-pushing creativity and pure emotional honesty as her compass. Detailing her creative process, “I just really go with how I feel in the moment and then that’s where the writing comes from. It’s like an ongoing disperse of words when I feel something.”
In a world obsessed with consumption, Shake is a much-needed breath of fresh air, more than ready to make her impact felt through music. In her own words, “I want it to make a change in the world. The agenda is bigger than just music.”

RISING ARTIST OLIVER MALCOLM RELEASES NEW TRACK “HELEN” — LISTEN NOW
Swedish born, London raised artist Oliver Malcolm has followed up with a brand new single, “Helen” (out on Darkroom/Interscope Records). The track (LISTEN HERE) is a poignant tale of salvation with staccato beats, blurry blues melodies interlaced with outré samples forming a sonic collage that’s fast becoming a signature of the young artist. Written and produced by Oliver himself, “Helen” follows the release of his debut single “Switched Up” which was critically praised by the likes of New York Times, FADER and SPIN who all went on to call it a masterful debut. Speaking on his sound and inspiration, Oliver has this to share:
“Last year I moved back to England. The song feels gritty and raw because that’s how I felt being back home in that environment. This guy owned a small complex behind an automobile warehouse and agreed to let me make as much noise as I want if I paid him 500 quid. I’d ride my bike back & forth every day with all my equipment in my backpack. This is the first song I made there.” — Oliver Malcolm

Praise for Oliver Malcolm & “Switched Up”:
“A sleek hybrid of rap and R&B” — FADER
“The drums lurch toward the offbeats, some looped guitar picking tugs against that pulse and Malcolm’s voice is a rattled, quavery moan…Everything stays off-kilter for the two and a half paranoid minutes of “Switched Off” by Oliver Malcolm” — New York Times, Playlist
“Oliver Malcolm’s ‘Switched Up’ Is Intoxicating… new single ‘Switched Up’ is a mesh of influences, a confluence of sounds, a mosaic of techniques.” — CLASH
