Maluma confirms relationship with Natalia Barulích, debuts new video with Shakira

Maluma has officially set the record straight on his current relationship status. While talking to Despierta América’s Luis Sandoval, the GPS singer confirmed that he is dating Natalia Barulích. “I'm dating her. She is a very special girl, very pretty. We love each other so much. We are starting a relationship,” he said.

The Colombian heartthrob added, “For the first time I can talk about the subject in front of the cameras. I have always said that my private life is my private life, but as it also says: you can not cover the sun with just one finger." Photos of the pair packing on PDA during a romantic stroll in Italy were published earlier this month.

Aside from recently confirming his romance, Maluma also dropped a new steamy music video with Shakira for their song Trap on Friday, January 26. “We worked on this song almost a year ago when we were working the Chantaje song in Barcelona, and I told her that there was a genre that is happening in the streets and the underground world," he told E! News. "She loved it and then we did a new song. Wait for it, because I think you're going to like it. It's very sensual, but it has a lot of concepts."
