To see the isolation as an opportunity, tells Apple Music: “Here’s where it’s going to happen a lot of inspiration, many ideas, many positive things in the community, because it is when people have time to think about how to level things. “

Is happy to have launched his new album “Colours” despite the current climate …

In fact, I am very glad that have released the album. I think that people never forget. My fans and the people who follow me, because this is a difficult time that we will never forget. If you give them some colors and some light, nor forget it. It is very, very silly, to see that people really vibe with the album. He is a great man, I’m grateful not to have ceased to release the album and let it be. One hundred percent, one hundred percent man and I believe that life is perfect man. The fact that the name of the album is Colors, and fell into this kind of strange moment, different or great, they call it grey. It is only a special man. It was special that the name help with the situation.

His dream of being a living legend, and why is the biggest fan of Drake …

My dream is right, I want to be a living legend. I do. I want to inspire people while I am alive. Listen, man, a legend is someone who really inspires the world. Someone who inspires, that you want to be. Like, “Yes, I want to be like that guy. Did a great job.” And usually, for me, the legends also have a social impact, which goes beyond the music. It is as you vibrate with your personality and resonate with your way of thinking, with your thoughts. For me, Drake is a legend. He has beaten many records, and I think that keeps it real. I have not had the opportunity to speak with him, but it seems like a great guy. I’ve not known and I haven’t even spoken with him. Never in my life. And do you know what? I am one of his biggest fans, directly.

What’s strange being on the streets of his home in Colombia …

Man, I personally don’t have bodyguards. I don’t like that shit So I am always near, man. The cars that lead me to show love I can go anywhere, man. I do not step anything. Just love Strange that. I miss going to a service station and talk with the guys. Take a seat there, talking to people. Anyone who wants to get closer to me. Strange that. Strange to be in contact with the people. I miss being in a place crowded … I’m used to being on a show for people. I have the luck of not having to cancel any tour. Because I didn’t want to do a tour this year.

His friendship with Nicky Jam …

When I met him, we were in a city called Chocó in Colombia. I couldn’t even believe that he was with Nicky Jam. Because I was with Daddy Yankee. Used to be a group Daddy Yankee Nicky Jam. At that time when I met Nicky, Nicky was depressed. It was Puerto Rico. It was basically like a pauper, he left his country. It was like starting from ground zero in Colombia. For me, no matter what happens, for me, it was Nicky Jam. I didn’t care that he was low because he also inspired me to be where I am. He was a man so happy to know him when I met him. It became a true friendship. I met Nicky Jam more like eight years, I think. He inspired me a lot. Born again, reborn again. He was a superstar. Then they lost everything and then regained it. Their children have received all of my respect.

About back to basics and see the positivity in this moment …

Man, I think that is a good time to go back to basics, and that is what I am trying to do. Lately, I’ve been promoting the album really hard, so I have not had the opportunity to not really do anything, but I know that I’m going to find all the different ways of feeding myself, cultural, spiritual, bodily. wise. I just think it is time that we go back to the simple thing. I’ve been in pajamas all day and just … Oh, man, I think that this is a gift at this time for us. It is a kind of gift. We have to see the positive side of this, the other side. All complained of the work and that you have no time for them, including me, and now we have all the time to be with us.

How the Internet helped him to overcome this moment and to be creative

Man, at least the Internet has helped us a lot with all the tools. I was doing FaceTiming my producers, Sky and Tiny, and talking about ideas. Let’s do something like this. The Internet really has helped us a lot in this time. It is time to create. I think that moments like this are born great opportunities. I think this is where a lot of inspiration, many ideas, many positive things in the community are going to happen, because that is when people have time to think about how to level up things. I’ve been thinking again and again, how are you going to be my new sound? What you want to do? Of course, I’m still promoting my new album. I’m already thinking of the future, without really think about what will come after.

About to lean towards gratitude …

I am grateful for. I am grateful for. That is what I say to you that this moment should be more about reconnecting with yourself and be grateful with all that we have. The next time we go, we will value things more simple like a coffee in the street, talking with someone. All of these things that we see as normal. Are not normal now. We miss them.

About being grateful, does not have a route planned …

I didn’t plan this COVID-19, this was not my plan. It is a situation crazy at this time. Then I am blessed. I am lucky that the universe works in a way so mysterious that I didn’t do a tour, and I didn’t have to cancel anything because this COVID-19 is happening at this time. I am grateful for. Even I have to be grateful for that.
