During their press conference at The Peninsula Manila, BEP members enthusiastically shared the story behind this exciting collaboration with Colombian reggaeton singer J Balvin for their brand new hit single, RITMO (Bad Boys For Life) under Epic Records. 

According to will.i.am, RITMO is inspired by a sample dance classic Brazillian act. They also added their own style and interpretation by combining Mumba and reggae tones. It is one of J Balvin’s highest performing records this year.
