During a virtual interview with Billboard, J Balvin and Maluma joined The Black Eyed Peas to talk about collaborating with the group on their upcoming album “Translation.”
When Black Eyed Peas frontman will.i.am was asked who he had to be the most flexible with while working on the album, he replied: “I had to be the most flexible with Shakira.” Adding, “But I learned from her because the way she does it is like a school.”
Balvin chimed in, saying: “One, two, three.”
will.i.am continued to discuss working with the popular artist, explaining how she collaborates on material. “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,” he explained.
Then, J Balvin interrupted, saying, “And then you go back to one, and then go to seven, then go to 10, then go to 20, and then go back to number one. One is the one.”
Following the interview, some Shakira fans deemed that J Balvin was being disrespectful toward the Latin artist and called for the singer to be “canceled.”
