J Balvin found himself in hot water with Shakira’s fans after he seemingly dissed the superstar. As you can imagine, after throwing shade at the ‘Queen’ during a new interview, Shakira’s fans were quick to come for him!
Black Eyed Peas’ new album features J Balvin and Maluma amongst many others and they joined together for a question and answer session for Billboard earlier today.
That is also when J ended up shading Shakira.
Black Eyed Peas was asked if they needed to be more flexible when working with Maluma or with J Balvin but they picked neither, saying that the collaborator that needed the most flexibility was none other than Shakira.
Will.i.am mentioned that he had a lot to learn from her when working together ‘because the way she does it is like a school. Number one, fix number one like this, here are my notes. And then for number two, I would really like to address this on number two, and then for number three…’
At this point, J Balvin jumped in, making it very clear that he agreed.
‘And then you go back to one, then go to seven, then go to 10, then go to 20, and then go back to number one. One is the one,’ J Balvin added.
The two have never actually collabed on a song before but did work together for the Super Bowl since Shakira headlined the Halftime Show alongside J.Lo. and J Balvin and Bad Bunny were also guests performers.
As mentioned before, Shakira’s fans did not appreciate his words so they proceeded to drag him online.
Here are a couple of reactions his supposed shade got on social media: ‘He should keep Shakira’s name out of his mouth.’ / ‘I think J Balvin needs to be reminded of the power that Shakira holds. LMAO sit down. You’re not about to talk s*** to a Latina queen who paved the way for you and countless others.’ / ‘I KNOW J Balvin didn’t just try to diss Shakira, the woman who has built up the latino pop community for decades.’ / ‘Nobody talks s*** about Shakira, the Queen of Latin music.’
