J Balvin Is Now The First Reggaeton Artist To Surpass 1 Billion Views On Youtube

The Colombian artist’s video for “Ay vamos” is still killing it.

October 29, 2016

J Balvin's conquest to break records has now gone far beyond the Billboard charts: Yesterday, the Colombian reggaeton star became the first Latin urban performer to reach (and now surpass) 1 billion video views on Youtube. The winner? His four-and-a-half minute video for "Ay vamos" from the 2014 studio album reissue, La Familia B Sides. The track was also the 31-year-old's first No. 1 single on the Hot Latin Songs chart.
