J Balvin Experiences a Surreal Heartbreak in New 'Gris' Video

J Balvin dropped his latest Colores visual, “Gris,” on Wednesday, directed by Colin Tilley. The clip sees J Balvin dealing with heartache in some very surreal scenarios: floods, fires, scorpion infestations, and a storm featuring a giant flying whale. The more negative thoughts he has, the more real-world disasters they bring.

All of it, of course, is done in grayscale to match the song’s title. It is the fifth Tilley-directed video for Colores following “Rojo,” “Morado,” “Blanco” and “Amarillo.” Colores, J Balvin’s fourth album, is the follow-up to his 2018 full-length Vibras, and features collaborations with Mr. Eazi and producer Sky Rompiendo.

J Balvin will be appearing on Global Citizen and the World Health Organization’s televised and streamed special, One World: Together at Home, to commemorate healthcare workers around the world fighting the coronavirus pandemic. Hosted by Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Stephen Colbert, and curated in collaboration with Lady Gaga, the special will take place Saturday, April 18th, and will benefit a range of local and regional charities providing food, shelter and healthcare to those in need. The special will begin at 8:00 p.m. EDT and air on ABC, NBC, ViacomCBS Networks, iHeart Media and Bell Media networks and platforms.
