J Balvin almost wasn't J Balvin. The succesful Colombian singer almost opted for a different stage name and is related to a spicy sauce. Balvin made the confession when paying a visit to show Hot Ones. Born as José Álvaro Osorio Balvin before going for his now stage name J Balvin, he was almost presuaded by a friend, here's the story he told:

"Speaking of Scotch Bonnet, you know that was supposed to be my artist name? Yeah, that's funny. When I was looking for my name, I had a friend, his name is Fat Al and he's a rapper. And he was like, 'You should have a spicy name like Scotch Bonnet. This was the first time I actually see what he was talking about, now let's taste it!"

During the interview, the singer also opened up about his thought on fame, saying he just wants to be an authentic person at all times and let his fans see that he's a regular person inspite of his success, adding:

"I don't like to feel like I'm a superstar I'm just a big dreamer. I've been a fan of a lot of artists and I see they act a certain way and when I meet them it's a totally different person... being real is the best thing that could happen to me because I don't have to act. I just want to be real. You can ask your boys after this if I was a piece of s— or not."

Balvin also spoke about the recent surge of reggaeton in the music industry, expressing how proud he is about the genre's recent popularity:

"It's happy; it's feeling-good music. It's all about emotion and the experience. People feel that with the melody we throw. It's really dope. It can make people, besides vibing with the flows, say 'I want to know what he's really saying.'"

The singer is now promoting his new single called Veneno, which we're sure is going to become an instant hit as it usually happens with the Colombian's work.
