It's J Balvin's world and we're just living in it.

The reggaetonero, whose real name is José Álvaro Osorio Balvin, continues to take over the charts with his hit-making music. But his songs aren't the only thing worth swooning over, as he's proven time and time again he's a force in fashion.

"I think fashion is a way to express yourself without even talking," J Balvin told E! News in an exclusive interview last summer. "People will be like, 'If I was famous, I would wear this.' But it's not about being famous. Since I was a kid, I was wearing whatever I wanted."

He added, "I'm dressing the way I'm dressing because I feel that it is good."

And if you thought the superstar's electrifying style would change after becoming a father to Rio, 22 months, you'll want to follow suit with his philosophy.

"Being a dad is a huge role. It's a top priority," J Balvin shared. "But you still don't have to become or act like a dad. I don't want to start wearing boring clothes because that's how a dad is supposed to act."

Rising Latinx TikTokers

The "Qué Más Pues?" singer, who turns 38 on May 7, is not breaking away from stereotypical dad fashion but he's ushering in a new era of dressing for men in general. Whether he's rocking tiger-striped hair with a zebra-print look or pushing the envelope during Paris Fashion Week with a skirt moment, the "Colores" artist is clearly marching to the beat of his own (style) drum.
