KAWS Drops off Some Gifts for J Balvin
Best Friend goals.
Latin artist J Balvin has always admired the legendary designer KAWS but it looks the admiration has now grown to a mutual friendship. J Balvin has been very comfortable with crossing over to English platforms but has done so in a way where his music stay authentic. The latino community tends to shame people who cross over, labeling them as sell-outs by J Balvin is killing the game. Collaborations with Wale, Pharrell, and now KAWS has shaped him into an even more confident artist. He met KAWS earlier this yea in June and mentioned in the comment how excited he was to meet him, comparing it to the happiness of child. The relationship grew over the course of a few months to now where KAWS is delivering gifts to Balvin. The comment reads “La conexión – the plug @kaws new kicks !! New BFF.” Now if only we could get a closer picture of the kicks, help us out Balvin.
