Maluma Success Tips

  1. “When I’m on stage, I’m singing my songs, but when I go home, I try to keep the balance. I just chill, pray, meditate and do yoga. Those things feed my soul. I have to understand that I have two roles in my life. One is Maluma. That’s my career, and I have to feel grateful. But there’s the other side that is Juan Luis, that I have to take care of, too, because if I lose my soul, there’s not gonna be any Maluma anymore. I have to keep the balance and understand both sides.”
