J Balvin brings the flow to Fortnite, how to get his Icon skin

Fortnite’s Season 7 is set to end in a few short weeks, so Epic Games has decided to celebrate in a big way with new collaborations that will arrive in the next few days.

The first of these already occurred with the debut of Morty now available in the in-game store, and the next to arrive will be the well-known Colombian reggaeton singer and five-time Latin Grammy winner, J Balvin, who after his first appearance at the end of 2020, will arrive with all his flow to the island.

J Balvin arrives to Fortnite: Skin and cosmetics

Revealed for the first time thanks to HYPEX, J Balvin’s skin will be part of the Icon Series, joining superstars like Travis Scott, Ariana Grande and Marshmello as part of this exclusive collection.

The skin will come with three different styles, these being the main one, the Balvin Energy aspect and the surreal Balvin Skeleton, which were used in the concert the reggaeton player gave last year within Fortnite during the Halloween campaign "Fortnitemares".

Also available will be his “Real” back bling and pickaxe, and the Balvin Cruiser glider that will leave a colourful trail in the skies of the island. Finally, the exclusive emote of this bundle will be inspired by “In Da Getto”, a famous song by J Balvin and Skrillex that you can see below.

Join “The Party” to celebrate J Balvin’s debut

The celebrations for the arrival of J Balvin to the battle royale will not end here, as Epic Games confirmed that from 26th August to 9th September you will be able to participate in "La Fiesta", an experience inspired by the reggaeton singer created by a member of the community called "Iscariote".

In addition, starting 24th August, the experience called "La Familia", also created by the same creator, will be available again.

Finally and as is usual in these collaborations, a new Cup will be enabled on 24th August, where players will be able to compete for the chance of getting the new skin and its accessories at no cost.
