It was only a few weeks ago that Ariana Grande, one of the biggest pop artists in the world, hosted a record-breaking concert inside of Fortnite.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like J Balvin will be hosting his own concert in Fortnite but he will be receiving his very own skin set. Here’s everything you need to know.
