In a pre-recorded video, Balvin, who spoke from his native Medellín, Colombia, said, "At this moment, I'm just getting better from COVID-19. These have been very difficult days, very complicated. Sometimes we won't think that we'll get it but I got it and I got it bad," Balvin said.

He continued, "My message to those that follow me, young fans and people in general is to take care. This isn't a joke. The virus is real and it's dangerous."
