Maluma graces the cover of our 2022 Latin issue, showing off a rather edgy and dramatic fashion style that’s bound to turn heads. The Colombian act, who’s always been very fashion-forward, has evolved over the years, rocking everything from a pink buzz cut to long blond locks and metallic bomber jackets to vibrant sets from his own clothing line.
“Fashion for me is a way of self-expression,” the artist previously told Billboard, describing his vision in fashion. “Depending on colors and style, it can describe your mood or enhance it positively. Fashion is like music; creativity and imagination.”
The week of Sept. 26, our latest cover star will make his way to the 2022 Billboard Latin Music Week in Miami, where the urban singer, songwriter, actor, entrepreneur and philanthropist will launch his new record label, Royalty Records, in addition to presenting new music, business ventures and branding releases. The Latin global superstar will also participate in one of the various superstar panels taking place during the week.
Coinciding with National Hispanic Heritage Month, Billboard Latin Music Week will include workshops and panels featuring already-announced artists such as Christina Aguilera, Romeo Santos, Camilo, Nicky Jam, Wisin y Yandel, Chayanne, Ivy Queen, Grupo Firme, Bizarrap, Blessd, Cris Chil, Dannylux, Dimelo Flow, Eladio Carrion, Elena Rose, Emilia, Foreign Teck, Grupo Firme, The Children of Jenni Rivera, Kuinvi, Kunno, Lili Zetina, Luis R Conriquez, Eslabón Armado, Mariah Angeliq, Ovy On The Drums, Subelo Neo, Tini, Tokischa and Ugly Primo, with more participants to be announced in coming weeks.
