    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.

    El álbum COLORES de J Balvin es claramente un disco temático más no de concepto ya que no lleva como tal una relación con su nombre. Más sinEl álbum COLORES de J Balvin es claramente un disco temático más no de concepto ya que no lleva como tal una relación con su nombre. Más sin embargo considero que ese es su único problema.

    La duración del album es buena, no es tan largo ni tan corto, por lo cual no llegaría a aburrir al escucharlo.

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

    Since Vibras, J Balvin has been the best Reggaeton artist out there until now.

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.
