It’ll be Maluma’s second time performing on the MTV VMAs. He performed “Felices los 4” on the 2018 show. It’ll be CNCO’s first performance on the show.

Maluma won a Latin Grammy for best contemporary pop vocal album in 2018 for F.A.M.E. He was nominated for a Grammy earlier this year for best Latin pop album for 11:11.

J Balvin, the most-nominated Latino this year, BTS and Doja Cat were announced as performers last week.

Rosalia and Puerto Rican urban star announced the news via Instagram on Tuesday, sharing a short clip of their upcoming song called “Yo x Ti, Tu x Mi.” 

In the video, Rosalía is wearing a headband full of roses and a snippet of the track can be heard. She’s then interrupted by a FaceTime call from Ozuna, where he asks her “are you ready?” “I’m ready. Everyone’s here. OMG!” she says at the end of the call. 

This is the first time the two high profile artists are collaborating together.

Recently, the “Malamente” shared a mesmerizing piano version of Ozuna’s “Amor Genuino.”Last year, the two artists were spotted taking a photo together during 2018 Latin Grammyweek.
