Maluma is featured in the new Autumn/Winter 2019 issue of British GQ Style and here’s what the reggaeton star had to say about Madonna, his fans and his music.

The singer open up about appearing in Madonna’s music video: “She was like, can I lick your toe?. I was like, f–k it, lick my toe! You’re Madonna. Do whatever you want.”

He added that he feels so loved even by his crazy fans, “I was at a concert and I got close to a fan and she pulled me so badly she ripped my shirt off. She hurt me. But you understand that that’s love. They want you to be close.”

The Colombian singer added he felt pressure to sing in English: “A year ago, I went to LA and worked with the biggest producers in the industry. Scott Storch, Timbaland, Max Martin. I felt pressure, because they told me I had to record in English. I did all these songs and loved them but wasn’t feeling my essence. I decided that I was going to keep singing in Spanish.”
