Maluma is leaving little to the imagination in his new Playgirl digital cover shoot.

The Columbian singer-songwriter is the face of's relaunch, and PEOPLE has an exclusive look at their "inside the issue" photoshoot: the steamiest with the "Felices Los 4" singer yet.

In one of the images shared, Maluma, 30, was snapped standing shirtless in a white-walled kitchen, staring seductively into the camera as he cascaded milk from a half-gallon into a bowl of cereal. Beyond an array of tattoos covering his torso, the only article of clothing present is what appears to be a grey textured robe tied loosely around his waist.

In another shot, Maluma goes cowboy, donning a matching denim vest and pant combo (unbuttoned, of course) accessorized by a cream-colored brimmed hat with contrasting black trim.

Despite his eyes being covered by the brim of his hat, Maluma's smile is clearly seen as he props his head up with his left arm and positions his right hand on his groin.

On the cover of Playgirl, the star gets even more comfortable with a laid-back pose, crossing his hands behind his head and fully unbuttoning the top of his coordinating black striped pajama suit.

“I’ve been [acting sexy] for almost 10 years, since I started my career,” Maluma highlighted in his cover interview, noting that people can still "admire someone and think that a person is sexy or that they’re hot," even when that person is in a committed relationship.

Speaking of committed relationships, Playgirl's cheeky choice to say that Maluma "wants to be your daddy" on the cover is a double entendre that also serves as a nod to the fact that the singer is about to become a father.
