J Balvin Says ‘I Like It’ Reaching No. 1 on Hot 100 Was One of the Happiest Days of His Life

He likes it like that.

In the latest episode of My Billboard Moment, this week’s Billboard cover star J Balvin reflects upon the time when “I Like It,” his collaboration with Cardi B and Bad Bunny, hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart in 2018.

Calling it one of the happiest days of his life, J Balvin notes that he was also very grateful for the song’s chart success. “I knew it since day one, I knew this since we recorded the song,” he says. “I remember that I told Cardi B's label that it was No. 1, for sure.”

“It was beautiful because it was a beautiful statement to be with Bad Bunny, to be with Cardi B and have it reach No. 1,” he continues, adding that it also meant a lot because the song is predominantly in Spanish.
