He told the outlet that ‘I had COVID, I know how it feels. I had it really bad. I never want to get it again. You guys in America are blessed to have so many vaccines right now, but I come from Colombia and we have only two percent of people vaccinated so it’ll take a lot of years. I want to help the world and help them and get vaccines. What is going on in India is really sad, it really hurt my feelings, and I am here [to be of] service.’
Aside from his health being affected, Balvin has also been unable to see his extended family amid the pandemic.
With that being said, he stressed that ‘I just cannot wait to see my family vaccinated and to hug them and to be relaxed, you know?’
At the same time, he also ‘can’t wait’ to go on tours again when this is all over!
‘Summer is back, the world needs it! I cannot wait, you know? I cannot wait just to spread the love, spread good energy, good vibes, and I just hope everyone can get vaccinated.’
