In 2016, he collaborated with artists, such as Thalía, Shakira and Ricky Martin. His collaboration with Shakira, "Chantaje", reached number one on the Hot Latin Songs chart.

Maluma has cited Héctor Lavoe, Justin Timberlake and Michael Jackson as his main musical influences.[3][29] He defines his music as "urban pop".[30][31] A Billboard editor wrote, "Maluma’s brand of reggaetón syncs nicely with his image, managing to be both romantic and raw. His sound represents an evolution of the genre."[3] In a 2016 interview, he stated:

I grew up with this genre that literally became life. It is one of the genres that I sing, because I am not a reggaetonero, I am an urban performer, I sing reggaeton. If you listen to my last album there are ballads, mambo, merengue and reggaeton and underground stuff. I like to show the versatility that I have to perform.[32]

Personal life

Maluma was born to Marlli Arias and Luis Londoño and grew up with an older sister, Manuela. He took an early interest in football (soccer) which he started playing as a toddler through middle school, competing in the lower divisions in the teams Atlético National and Equidad Sports Club. Additionally, he developed a keen interest in music during his early teenage years and was famed as a good singer in his high school. He graduated from "Hontaranes School" in El Retiro where he was encouraged by many of his friends to enter local singing competitions.[33]

He got his first musical break when he was fifteen after he composed, together with a close friend, a song titled “No quiero”; a year later Juan Parra, his uncle, offered him the opportunity to record it in a studio as his birthday present.[33]

He adopted the stage name of Maluma, which is a combination of the two first letters of the names of his mother Marlli, his father Luis and his sister in Manuela. Citing his parents as a major influence on his career, “It is a tribute to them because I love them and they are the drive of my career”.

Maluma's romantic life has been the subject of much speculation which he has kept private for the most part. However, in an interview with Telemundo's Al Rojo Vivo in January 2018 he admitted to being in relationship with Cuban-Croatian model Natalia Barulich whom he met during the recording of his music video "Felices Los 4". He said of the relationship:

We have a great time together, we have fun, we love each other, and we also support each other...I think those are the fundamentals. It's the most important thing. Right now, we're dating. We like what we have, I like her company, and she supports me and loves me, so you're all seeing me like never before.[34]
