He told Billboard in July 2020 that he was waiting on releasing an album titled Tiempo as well, chronicling the moments of his life.

Additionally, he has at least 1.6 million monthly listeners on Spotify.

Why Is His YouTube Channel Empty? Almost...

While Pantoja has kept his music alive, with No Goza as his latest music video, on his now-primary YouTube channel, he did have a massive following on his former channel. His self-titled channel had well over 19 million followers, according to SocialBlade, before he decided to cut it off completely.

However, the channel does contain only one video, at the time of writing, presumably his most viral music video on the channel titled Juan De Roast Yourself Challenge - JD Pantoja ? with over 142 million views. Statistics show that he deleted all but one video from the channel in May 2020, after the wake of the controversy surrounding his marriage in April.

Prior to deleting almost his entire YouTube presence, he had over 1.5 billion total views in his now-dormant channel. And of course, he did make quite a fortune from it. It's not knowable how much, but he does earn over an estimated $200,000* per music video from the active channel with 11 million subscribers.

A part of JukiLop (Juan + Kimberly + Loaiza + Pantoja), JD Pantoja and his wife Kimberly Loaiza, who herself has a net worth fitting for her status) met when he was 17 & she was 15, and the relationship was rocky from the start. Not the connection between them, of course, but what stood in their way. Loaiza's parents protested the idea, but they stuck together and even eloped in 2016 to be legally married the first time.

There always were hiccups in their relationship, which explains an unexplainable legal separation, in 2018, according to reports. But April 2020 was the biggest hitch when Lizbeth Rodríguez accused Pantoja of being romantically involved with his photographer, Kevin Achutegui, while a few infidelity rumors were going on around.

There were private messages thrown around on Twitter which resulted in the pair announcing that they were taking a break to reflect on their relationship, while Pantoja argued that some of these clips were doctored to place him in those scenes. He did admit to some of the other accusations though.
