J. Balvin and Michael Jordan met last Sunday at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee (USA). Both are ambassadors for NASCAR team 23XI Racing. The Antioquia reggaeton player spent an uncomfortable time with the legendary former Chicago Bulls basketball player. Luckily, as a sign of respect, the six-time NBA champion took over the sticky situation.
José Álvaro Osorio is one of the stars competing in the Bass Pro Shops Night Race. The 38-year-old Colombian artist poses with American driver Tyler Reddick in the No. 45 Toyota. The car features the J Balvin logo and iconic Jordan silhouette.
The Medellin-born singer, who is promoting his new single “Dientes,” shared a photo with Jordan via social networks. The five-time Latin Grammy winner is living a dream by sharing and working with what is, to many, the best basketball player of all time.
