With loads of No. 1's in Spanish-speaking countries, 20 million-plus followers on Facebook and Instagram, Maluma is already a certified sensation in the Latin music community. He's become a go-to collaborator for the likes of ShakiraFifth Harmony and Ricky Martin, and now it looks like his domination will continue with a bilingual album.

The Colombian singer-songwriter-producer shared with Entertainment Tonight that he's already at work on the followup to 2015's Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy. "Now I'm working on my new album," he said. "I'm hoping that I can do it in Spanish and English. That's a really big step. It's just the beginning."

Recently, Maluma collaborated with his fellow Colombian Shakira on "Chantaje," the slinky dance cut that hit No. 1 on Billboard's Latin Hot Songs chart, and wrapped up his first U.S. tour that was one of the must-attend shows of the season.

While we wait for Maluma's next big move, get yourself familiarized with "Chantaje," which features some sexy dancing between the two stars:
