J Balvin was the latest artist to perform on NPR’s “Tiny Desk (Home) Concert” series. Balvin was backed by DJ Jose Rivera, drummer Marcus Thomas, and George Ponce on bass and keys. The four men performed from a barge on New York’s East River. Watch Balvin and his band play “Vestido,” “Que Locura,” “Otro Fili,” and “In Da Getto” in the clip below.
J Balvin recently released his latest studio album Jose, the follow-up to last year’s Colores. The new LP features “Que Locura,” “In da Getto” (with Skrillex), “7 de Mayo,” “¿Qué Más Pues?” (with María Becerra), “Otro Fili” (with Jay Wheeler), and more. He’ll head out on a tour in support of the album in April.
