In the last two weeks Marry Me has hit cinemas around the world. A romantic comedy from head to toe starring Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson and Maluma, who has made his debut on the big screen.
This production, directed by Kat Coiro, tells the story of Kate Valdez, a pop star who is married to Bastian, another musical celebrity who is played by Maluma. They are the most famous and sexy couple in show business, so their life also becomes part of it. So much so, that their wedding will be public in front of millions of fans.
Minutes before the wedding, Kat finds out about Bastian’s infidelity and to save herself from criticism and mockery in front of the entire audience, she makes a scene to marry a stranger from the audience who is holding a sign that reads ‘Marry me’. That’s where Owen Wilson’s character comes in and from where the story begins: a world-famous woman starts a marriage with a stranger.
The stranger turns out to be Charlie Gilbert, an unassuming math teacher who is dazzled by Kat’s glamorous lifestyle, perfect on the outside, but when he discovers what’s behind it, he empathizes with a deeply lonely woman, who lives to the rhythm of a busy schedule and a meticulously planned surface exposed on social networks.
This is a great moment for JLo, as in addition to starring in and producing the film, she also performs some unreleased songs. Marry Me includes the release of 12 songs that have that 2000’s essence combined with Latin and urban rhythms. The most popular and most played song in the different platforms is, precisely, Marry Me, the duet with the Colombian singer.
It’s the acting debut of Maluma, who has been very grateful and nostalgic. “Who would have thought that a ‘pelao’ from Medellín – Colombia was going to star in a HOLLYWOOD movie with @jlo and Owen Wilson!!!!!”, he expressed in his social media.
He has also made it clear that this is just the beginning and that he wants to break the stereotype that has been imposed on Latinos and become the first Latino Batman or James Bond. All this without forgetting his musical career, which is still his priority and to which he continues dedicating all his efforts.
