Miami, FL, (February, 9 2017)
– With over 45.5 million followers on social media (making him the leading Latin male artist on Instagram) and his official YouTube/VEVO channel which has garnered over 4 billion views, it is no wonder Maluma
will be featured in the panel, SOCIALIZING MALUMA: How the Colombian star works his social media
, during the 28th anniversary of the Billboard Latin Music Conference in Miami.
Maluma has achieved unparalleled success with his Maluma World Tour with sold-out shows throughout Latin America and Spain. As an urban artist, he sold out 3 consecutive nights at Argentina’s Luna Park, 1 night at Direct TV Arena in Argentina and had 3 concerts at Mexico City’s Auditorio Nacional.
In 2015 he released his latest album Pretty Boy Dirty Boy under the Sony Music US Latin label which debuted at #1. In his first year and a half in the U.S. market Maluma garnered five #1 songs on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart. He is the youngest artist to simultaneously hold both the #1 and #2 spots on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart (with “Sin Contrato” and “Chantaje”) and only the sixth act to ever achieve the feat.
The conference which will be held April 24-26
at the Ritz-Carlton in South Beach Fla.
, will also feature key industry leaders and music stars. Registration to the conference is open at BillboardLatinConference.com
with early bird, loyalty and group rates available.
