The “Mala Mia” singer wore a patterned blue and yellow graphic-print shirt from Adidas; he has been the South American ambassador for the brand since 2019.

Maluma paired up the sporty top with a pair of black slacks and white sneakers. For a quick outfit touch-up, Maluma added on a heavily bedazzled black and silver button-down and rectangular sunglasses by Lanvin.

Maluma wore his hair slicked back and added in a few accessories, including a small stack of gold and diamond bracelets and diamond stud earrings.
