Jam and J Balvin originally released the quirky club track "X" back in March. The following month they dropped a Spanglish version that had the two trading verses in English and Spanish. Both artists took the song to the top of Billboard's Hot Latin Songs chart and, impressively, to No. 41 on the all-genre Hot 100. The guys up the star power of "X" with Maluma and Ozuna on the remix.
Earlier in the year, J Balvin expressed interest in working with fellow Colombian Maluma despite the media pitting the two reggaetoneros against each other. That dream collaboration is finally a reality with the "X" remix. Jam also roped in another superstar from his native Puerto Rico, Ozuna. The four of them have been running the Latin music game with extraordinary streaming numbers and far-reaching social media presences. Balvin actually dethroned Drake this week to take the title of Spotify's most streamed artist in the world. The stream kings are now joining forces on "X."
"X" is still a slinky affair that's even sexier with Ozuna's sensuous voice and Maluma's playful come-ons in the mix. It's so extra yet so essential hearing Latin music's finest together on one track. Expect the four guys to do big numbers with this excellent remix.
