Thanks to social distancing and self-isolation, fans can now text Maluma! In a recent video, the Que Chimba singer admitted that he’s bored and as a result, he is sharing his phone number with fans. “ESTE ES MI CEL ESCRIBANME # 1 (718) 223-4307 ESTOY PENDIENTE / THIS IS MY PHONE NUMBER 1 (718) 223-4307 TEXT ME 😘 (ONLY U.S AND CANADA FOR NOW).” In the clip, the singer takes a break from his workout and tells his fans that now that he’s in the house, it’s the perfect time for them to get connected.
While the video got over 2 million views from fans and followers, it was his buddy J Balvin who chimed in with the silliest comment. “En barra con las gafas OK CHIMBA 😂.” It’s clear that the Rojo singer was more concerned with his fitness attire than his number.

In addition, the star will cover the living costs for up to 170 families.
Maluma shared a special message with his fans, where he confirmed his inspiration for the great cause. “I am incredibly happy because with my foundation, El Arte de los Sueños, we’ve been able to help out lots of kids, and have also been able to donate other necessities as well as medical supplies,” he shared.
“I am only sharing this as a way to motivate others to be more compassionate with those in need and give back with small acts of kindness, donations — whether monetary, supplies or otherwise. See this as an invitation to help open your heart and help those who have less with everything we can.”
