If you haven’t heard of the Latin sInger and superstar Maluma you are missing out. He is one of the hottest global crossover celebrities right now and just keeps getting hotter. Known for his deep sexy voice, the 26 year old Colombian singer did a big feature on a Shakira song a couple of years ago, followed that with a feature on a blockbuster Madonna track last year and sang with Jennifer Lopez on her hit song “Pa ti” this year. He must have really impressed JLo because she has tapped him to star with her in her next Romantic Comedy, “Marry Me”.
The musical comedy stars Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson, Sarah Silverman, Chloe Coleman, and John Bradley, and it marks Maluma’s first feature film. The movie is based on Bobby Crosby’s graphic novel of the same name and is described as a cross between Notting Hill and A Star Is Born.
It centers around Lopez’s character finding out that her fiancé (Maluma) has been cheating on her with her assistant before she goes on to marry a random crowd member (Wilson) instead.
On top of this Maluma will be the first ever solo male to grace the cover of Elle this February.
