4. F.A.M.E. (2018)
“I was listening to a mix of Latin jams while I was cleaning up when Maluma’s “Corazon” came on. I stopped to listen more closely and get the artist details. Later on, I sampled the album and found that I couldn’t stop listening to all of the songs. Fell in Love. He is both talented and beautiful.”
3. Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy (2015)
“I am loving Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy. The music makes you feel good, and every time I hear one of the tracks, I just want to get up and dance. This helps pass the day when I driving home from work in traffic.”
2. 11:11 (2019)
“This is an excellent album. Maluma definitely deserves a Grammy nomination for this one. It is one of the few albums I own that I can just let play and every song is entertaining and gets me dancing! Highly recommend!”
1. Magia (2012)
“I LOVED all of the music from his thanking his fans in the beginning to the last song. I think I skipped only one slow song. I use this CD to groove, to dance and sing along, to make my drive fun and play it over and over.”
