Maluma will be the first man to appear on the cover of the women's magazine Elle. The new U.S. edition will be released in February.
He will appear on the cover with his hair dyed green. The singer posted it on his Instagram account: "This is Maluma, baby! Latin pop's hottest star is just getting started," was the headline.
"Thanks to @elleusa for making me the first man on the magazine cover, this means a lot to me! Let's keep dreaming and achieving," Maluma wrote on his Instagram account.
"Of course 2020 has been a very difficult year for all of us, but I feel that this was my best year yet, musically, artistically and personally. I feel like I have been reborn," the artist confessed to Elle.
Maluma revealed that his parents were very happy that he had spent a lot of time in Colombia during the pandemic. And at the same time, they were a little worried about him because they didn't know what was going to happen to his work.
"My job is to be on tour, but for me this has been very positive, being here in Colombia. I feel very connected to myself again," he said.
In May Maluma will appear on screens around the world in the romantic comedy "Marry Me" with singer Jennifer Lopez. The film tells the story of a pop singer (Jennifer Lopez), who is about to marry her boyfriend (Maluma), until she discovers that he was unfaithful to her with someone close to her.
"Jennifer is not only a co-worker, I would say she is my friend. She is someone I admire, and she is someone I have followed since my childhood. So, for me, being part of this film was almost a surreal experience," he said.
He also confessed to Elle that he does not like to make new friends. "Sometimes I feel that they want to be my friends, but as soon as I turn my back, they stab me," he added.
That's why Maluma prefers to be safe with the friends he has. He always feels comfortable with them. When he didn't have money, they were the ones who were supporting him and invited him to their house for lunch.
"They were the ones who were laughing at me, and now they are enjoying my success. That's life, just being grateful for everything that has happened," he concluded.
