There's something about Maluma that instantly attracts you to him.

The 24-year-old Colombian crooner has been breaking hearts in Latin America since the release of his debut album, Magia, in 2012, but he's rapidly grabbing people's attention stateside. The suave singer, with his hard-rock abs and tousled locks, has become the heartthrob you didn't know about, but need to. 

The singer released his first single, "Farandulera," in 2012, which quickly became a radio hit and garnered him a recording deal with Sony Music. His sophomore album Pretty Boy, Dirty Boy showcased his diverse musical tastes with singles like "Borró Cassette," "El Perdedor" and "Sin Contrato," all becoming fan favorites and solidifying a spot in the top 10 on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart.

Maluma has also had career changing collaborations with global sensations like Shakira ("Chantaje," "Trap" and "Clandestino"), Marc Anthony ("Felices los 4" Salsa Remix), Fifth Harmony ("Sin Contrato") and Ricky Martin ("Vente Pa' Ca"), among others.

2018 has been among his best year yet, achieving international success and releasing his third album, F.A.M.E. 

"I think we’re making history. I think it’s the first time in history that Latin music and Latin culture is around the world the way it’s happening right now," he told ET's Keltie Knight at the MTV Video Music Awards on Monday. "And being part of it, it makes me proud. We have a huge responsibility behind us. But, I think that we're going to make it. We’re working for it and the best is yet to come."

Maluma has definitely come a long way from a clean-shaven baby face fans first saw in "Farandulera" to a sexy, tattooed stud with the perfect amount of scruff in "Mala Mia." Here are all his most notable looks. 

Since his first red carpet, Maluma has never shied away from showing off his fashion flair and putting his personal touch on all his looks. As his fame grew, the singer began sporting -- and catching the eye of -- designers like Gucci, Saint Laurent and especially Dolce & Gabbana, who he frequently wears. Not many artists his age have gotten so much exposure to name brands without having done a full crossover.

Recently, the singer likes to keep things flashy during his performances with his choice of stylish and flashy suits -- most, as in the below, courtesy of Dolce & Gabbana. 

Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana are such big Maluma fans that they had him close their Milan Fashion Week runway show earlier this year (see the first pic below). They also have been dressing him for most of his tours and recent award show performances, most recently the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards.
