Written by on August 18, 2020
J Balvin says he is recovering after battling the coronavirus. In a pre-taped video that aired as Balvin accepted an award at Premios Juventud 2020, he revealed he contracted COVID-19.
“At this moment, I am recovering from COVID-19. These have been some very difficult days, very complicated. Sometimes you think it’s not going to hit you, and it hit me, and it hit me very hard,” said the 35-year-old Latin Grammy winner. He added, “I’m sending a message to all those who follow me, to all the youth, to people in general, that they take care, that this is not a joke … the virus as such exists. It’s very dangerous. Take a lot of care of yourselves.”
Balvin has released a number of hits, including “Mi Gente” with Beyoncé, “X” with Nicky Jam, “I Like It” with Cardi B and Bad Bunny, “Con Altura” with Rosalía and “Ritmo (Bad Boys for Life)” with The Black Eyed Peas.
