    Aware that any language barrier can be overcome by a plethora of hooks and a prevailing atmosphere, Balvin adds a playful embellishment to each of the album’s 10 tracks, be it Amarillo’s kazoo-assisted beat, or the twinkling glacial percussion that tickles closer Blanco. A riot not just of colour, but of ideas too.

    An energetic and vibrant project, that is exactly what the music scene needed in such an uncertain time. One of J Balvin’s strongest projects to date.

    There are no filler colors like “macaroni and cheese”. The brushstrokes he paints as a purveyor of perreo pop might not be as broad, but they’re far-reaching in highlighting the evolution and future of reggaeton music. Balvin remains a power player in the globalization of the #LatinoGang, and Colores continues to showcase his colorful flow and spirit as a beacon in the movement.

    Spanning 10 pigment-themed tracks, Colores is a sophisticated show of Balvin’s sonic palette.

    There isn't much lyrical substance on Colores, and there doesn't need to be. It's a party record whose lyric flows are effortless and laid-back enough -- a Balvin trademark -- to attract listeners inside and outside musica urbano's big tent. The album's brevity adds depth and dimension to its direct, seductive, welcoming mix and garish presentation.

    There’s something understandably confident about Colores, from its grand concept album status (every song is named after a colour, although the lyrics seem conceptual only in so far as they largely revolve around how sexually irresistible Balvin is) to its brevity.

    Affable but slightly numbing. ... But by and large, these are polite songs, and familiar, too. Balvin is a sweetly elegiac singer — see especially “Azul,” where he stretches out soft vowels like taffy — but his rapping is largely blank.

    Uno de los mejores discos latinos, a pesar de todas las dificultades de la pandemia J Balvin supo trabajar con el concepto del disco visual.

    Sempre me surpreendendo. Sem fugir das suas características adicionando o umas batidas envolvente estilo R&B, ele sim é diferenciado.

    . This album fails to live up to its hype and conceptual direction. The production, although not bad it does feel very bland and shallow on. This album fails to live up to its hype and conceptual direction. The production, although not bad it does feel very bland and shallow on most song and the beats don't hit as hard as the ones on the records of his contemporaries, primarily Bad Bunny. This album suffered from the ambitious concept of various colors representing each song and he should focus more on the sound of the record itself instead of its aesthetics. Definitely not a bad album but overall it feels like a lost opportunity to show innovative production and define his sound. Expand

Un colombiano mas tratando de encajar y pasar por inteligente pero no le da. Balvin deja de reirte TAAAAN falso en cada entrevista o promoción o momento incomodo, ya sabemos q es tu forma de evadir memes y chistes sobre ti, no muestres tanto la debilidad. PD: las animaciones de las cabezas grandes, son Un rotundo asco! Odié los fondos en degrade evocando el vomito Expand
