Music documentaries have experienced a real boom over the course of the last few years, and they’re not going anywhere. Everyone from Taylor Swift and Billie Eilish to Demi Lovato and Ariana Grande shared their own, and these three stars are ready to join in the ranks.

J Balvin

The Colombian singer J Balvin is one of the biggest reggaeton superstars in the world and the subject of Amazon Prime’s The Boy from Medellín. This documentary shows him getting ready for the most important concert of his career in his hometown that took place in 2019.


P!nk’s documentary All I Know So Far will show her trying to balance family and life on the road during her Beautiful Trauma world tour. It will be accompanied by the album All I Know So Far: Setlist, which will consist of live performances and several new songs.

J. Cole
