Maluma also talks to Billboard about his risqué lyrics. I say what I think because that’s the way I am, says Maluma. I don’t like to do music thinking about what’s working in radio at the moment. I don’t like to deal with taboos. At a cultural level, Latin music hasn’t developed like American music.

The 24-year-old singer continues, If you listen to American radio, the top songs deal with all kinds of dirty stuff, and [my song] Felices los 4 doesn’t even come close. In Latin America, to see an artist who’s not trap or underground do a song like 4 Babys is a culture shock. But it also opened the door for other [Latin] artists to go further.
