Singer Maluma is the first man on the cover of the fashion magazine "Elle". He thanks Instagram for this honor.

The South American megastar Maluma (26, "Parce") is the first man to be seen solo on the cover of the US edition of the fashion magazine "Elle". The Colombian reggaeton singer is honored and thanks on Instagram, where he currently has more than 56.7 million subscribers.

"Very positive" experience

"Thank you US 'Elle' for making me the first man on the cover of the magazine, that means a lot to me," says Maluma happily. "Of course 2020 was a very difficult year for all of us, but for me it feels like it was my best year so far – musically, artistically and personally," explains the singer in the accompanying cover story.

For Maluma it was a "very positive" experience to be able to spend a longer time in Colombia again and not be on tour. "I feel very connected to myself again," explains the 26-year-old. The singer will soon be seen as an actor alongside Jennifer Lopez (51, "Let's get loud"). The release of their joint film "Marry Me" is planned for May 2021.
