CMN also announces J Balvin tour dates for 2022
In the early hours of September 10, J. Balvin released his sixth album, José. The 24-track album includes collaborations with Sech, Yandel, Skrillex, Myke Towers, Feid, Zion & Lennox, Ozuna, Tokischa, Maria Becerra, Jay Wheeler, Khalid, Karol G, Nicky Jam, Bad Bunny, and much more. However, there is one song that stands out from the rest, “Querido Río”.
An intimate moment between a father and his baby, the song is a beautiful love letter full of hopes, dreams and the promise of unconditional love between a parent and his child.
“Hello I don’t know if you can hear me // But I’m a different person // My doubts are gone // And there’s only one reason, yeah // That reason is you…. “
In May 2021, Balvin sat down with the host Quick Morman of New complexes program, 360 with Speedy Morman, and spoke of his impending fatherhood. “I’m scared. Like, I want to run away,” he joked to Morman.
Always open and honest when it comes to discussing his struggles with depression and anxiety, with his millions of social media followers, Balvin has been low key when it comes to discussing his issues. personal life. It was until April 2021, when his girlfriend, model Valentina Ferrer, appeared on the cover of Vogue Mexico with J Balvin right behind her as her hands held her baby bump, as the still-private couple announced that he expected.
“I’m scared because sometimes I feel like I can’t love myself,” he said. “You know, I talk about mental health and things like that, you know… I want to give my kid the best of me. When you’re conscious, you know, and I don’t want to transfer my fears to him. The more aware you are, the more responsibilities you have.
There is no doubt that Balvin is happy to be a father. But as he told Morman, depression and anxiety are two things he doesn’t want his son to face. “I want my child to be the happiest child. I don’t want him to be rich. I don’t want him to be an artist. I just want him to be the happiest person in the world. he says.
“But speaking to God, he said to me:” my son, here I am sending you a little angel, which not to take care of would be a crime // This is absolutely what I need // I do not know if I meet the requirements // But I promise you that you will never leave without a beautiful love // In this song I put your heart // This is the beat that I’m hooked on.“
In “Querido Río”, the motor rhythm flowing as Balvin sings is that of his unborn son’s heartbeat recorded during the ultrasound. In an interview with Billboard, he told the magazine that the song was very moving and at times difficult to continue. “I had never cried so hard doing a song,” Balvin told Billboard on Sept. 8. “I had to take breaks between takes. I wrote it before Rio was born [this past June], but I wouldn’t change a thing.
September 10, Cardenas Marketing Network announced on their upcoming Instagram tour Balvin, named after the latter album, slated for 2020 starting April 19 in San Antonio, TX, with stops in many major cities across the United States and Canada. Tickets go on sale September 17, and presale tickets will be available to CMN fans on September 16.
