'Colores' stays true to the reggaeton roots that J Balvin has built upon during the years of his influence on the Latino music scene.
The Observer

A riot not just of colour, but of ideas too.

Consequence of Sound

Balvin remains a power player in the globalization of the #LatinoGang, and Colores continues to showcase his colorful flow and spirit as a beacon in the movement.

Already a global star, reggaetón’s reigning hitmaker tries his hand at becoming an auteur with an audiovisual album.
Rolling Stone
The Colombian hitmaker’s latest is a sophisticated survey of his sonic palette.

There isn't much lyrical substance on Colores, and there doesn't need to be. It's a party record whose lyric flows are effortless and laid-back enough -- a Balvin trademark -- to attract listeners inside and outside musica urbano's big tent.

The Guardian
The Colombian returns with an infernally catchy album set to smash cultural boundaries – if not artistic ones.

he visto muchas reseñas de este lanzamiento tan reciente del artista de reggaetón colombiano, j balvin. al escuchar el álbum por primera vez, entendí perfectamente la calificación tan mediocre que tiene el disco en este sitio. sin embargo, luego de escuchar muchas de estas canciones durante fiestas, ya me convencí de que es necesario tener esa perspectiva para apreciar el álbum como era su intención. yo no vengo a este álbum ... read more
J Balvin delivers a short reggaeton album where each track is named after a colour. That is pretty much the only real standout characteristic, but the album itself is for the most part pretty fun with very catchy and slick production, as well as some very catchy flows from J Balvin. While some tracks aren't too interesting, as well as some tracks having very dull flows and the track Amarillo having completely out of place trumpets, I suppose I enjoyed it more than anything?

Tanto las instrumentales como el desempeño de J balvin en los versos están bien, pero a parte de la idea de los colores, el disco parece bastante poco inspirado y mediocre. Lo salvan algunos temazos como: Negro, Morado y Amarillo.
Colores is just another average reggaeton album. I don’t think J Balvin has enough personality to carry an album where all the tracks have the same kind of beat. It’s not bad, but could’ve been way better if he experimented more. It should’ve been more colorful.
BEST TRACKS: Amarillo, Rojo, Blanco
WORST TRACKS: Verde, Negro
