J Balvin.

The reggaeton player was almost convinced by one of his friends to use a “spicy” name.

Fans of reggaeton star J Balvin know that legally his name is José Álvaro Osorio Balvín and that the name he uses professionally is a combination of his initial and his mother’s last name, which is also easy to pronounce in both Spanish and in English. Before deciding on J Balvin, the artist handled other possibilities and has now revealed that, if he had decided to listen to the people around him, the world could have known him as Scotch Bonnet, which turns out to be a very spicy sauce.

“When I was looking for my stage name, one of my rapper friends told me I should use a ‘spicy’ one, like Scotch Bonnet. And now I finally understand what he meant ”, he explained on the “ Hot Ones ”program, in which, curiously, he came across this condiment while eating chicken wings throughout the interview.

The idea of ​​using an alias was very useful in the beginning, when he was in charge of personally managing all aspects of his career because it allowed him to answer work calls like José so that he gave the impression that he had a great team around it.

“I used to be my own manager. You saw my name, José, speaking on behalf of J Balvin. He would answer the phone saying: ‘Do you want J Balvin? Let me talk to him and see if he’s interested and if his schedule is clear. ‘ And it was all me ”, he recalled without being able to contain his laughter.
