What happened in La voz México?
It all started in 2016, when they were both coaches of the game show. After Alejandro Sanz sang a cappella one of his greatest hits, J Balvin asked him a somewhat awkward question. “Didn’t the one who sings for you come?”he said generating laughter.
However, despite being a joke to liven up the atmosphere, the balladeer did not hesitate to answer him. “It seems that the dye has penetrated your scalp and has affected you a little. You, Since you don’t even sing, you shouldn’t have anyone to sing for you.”he limited by unleashing the astonishment of all those present.
After the tense moment that was experienced live, social networks reacted and even began to speculate that the artists were not tolerated, which was denied at the time.

J Balvin and Alejandro Sanz: the reunion
Later, but in the same year, the singers met again at La voz España. J Balvin was invited to sing a song with Alejandro Sanz’s students to sponsor his team. This event did not go unnoticed by the host of the program, who was encouraged to ask what the relationship between the two was like.
“They staged something that was not reality, very exaggerated. That happened the first day, but when we met everything went well. They are very good people, seriously.” expressed the Spanish singer after giving himself a friendly hug with the reggaeton player.
How did the fight between J Balvin and Resident originate?
In the year 2021, Residente responded to a possible ‘boycott’ by J Balvin towards the 2021 Grammy Awards that were in charge of paying tribute to Rubén Blades. The Colombian’s argument was that they did not support artists of his genre, but the Puerto Rican’s response was to criticize his music and compare it to a hot dog. In response, the Colombian brought out products in reference to this food.
When it seemed that this discussion was in the past, René Pérez pitched against J Balvin again and this time it was in Session #49 of Bizarrap: “I’m going to lower myself with a bobolón that sings to SpongeBob and Pokémon. The copy of a clone, the Logan Paul of reggaeton. As they say out there: ‘Josesito, you don’t have a street, that’s why you have soft knuckles. With just a video I bury this calf and put him to upload photos with his dog. P**** liar, he plays spiritual. It’s like a vegan breakfast: no egg.”
In this way, Residente maintains this fight between the two singers and there is still no official response from J Balvin to what happened.
