Nicky Jam and J Balvin became friends years ago in Colombia, when Balvin was on the cusp of stardom and Nicky Jam was trying to resurrect his career after a decade lost to personal problems.

The friendship has endured, which isn’t common between two stars of this caliber. But as Nicky himself says, “People love our bromance.”

In this week’s edition of Latin Connection, Nicky Jam opens up about the music and friendship that binds him and Balvin together.

“He gave me a whole new world to create music,” says Jam, who spoke while on the set of the video for  “X,” their single.

“We gotta show [the world] that we are competition but we can be good friends. That’s what we did. We became good friends.”
