With a forthcoming album on the way, a World Cup song, and 10 Billboard Latin Music Award nominations, Maluma has been everywhere and is only getting started. He kicked off his U.S. F.A.M.E tour on Friday (March 23), and on Sunday night (March 25), he headlined New York City's Madison Square Garden for the first time, impressively selling out the arena, making him the youngest Colombian artist to do so.
Aside from those achievements, the "El Préstamo" singer put on a show nothing short of entertaining. This concert proved he is not only a reggaeton singer, but a multi-faceted artist who is more than capable of singing live: he can dance, from salsa to Milly Rock, has amazing stage presence, interacts with fans, has the ability to change genres without interrupting the flow of the performance and maintains great energy throughout his 20-song set.
The night began at approximately 8 o'clock with the "F.A.M.E premiere," a short video that channeled Old Hollywood -- it was glamorous, had a dramatic plot that progressed along with the concert and showcased Maluma's acting skills. Then "23" began to play and the crowd went wild as Maluma appeared on a stage lift.
