Or how about he himself congratulates you on your birthday ”, which could be a remote possibility since they ask you to register your date of birth.
J Balvin’s WhatsApp chat also asks you for other things such as an email, other musical genres of your liking besides reggaeton, in which country do you live, where were you born and what is your favorite song from his new album “Jose”.

“At the moment I only had this to tell you, you must be attentive to Jose’s networks so that he can tell you when you can write to us again. Or who knows, suddenly he will be able to send you a message ”, concludes J Bot with a Lego!
