Madame Tussauds has unveiled two new figures of J Balvin in their celebrity lineup of wax figures.

J Balvin’s New York figure honors his 2021 Moschino Met Gala ensemble, consisting of an intricately embellished floral 3-piece suit meticulously replicated by Madame Tussauds to match the original set. With a striking bleach blonde buzz cut, this new figure takes visitors back to his unforgettable appearance at the pinnacle of fashion’s calendar.

At Madame Tussauds New York, the figure will live in the newly transformed Music room, part of a multimillion-dollar investment into the flagship attraction, which in recent years has included theexpansion of the MARVEL Hall of Heroes, the new Warner Bros. Icons of Horror experience, and a complete reimagination of its party area full of A-Listers called the Glow Gala. Scheduled for completion this summer, the final phase of the Music area will introduce another to-be-announced figure of a globally beloved music icon. In addition to J Balvin, other residents of the reimagined Music zone include Dua Lipa, Beyoncé and Megan Thee Stallion.

The Vegas figure embodies J Balvin’s “Vibras” ethos, dressed in an authentic GUESS outfit provided by José himself, originally worn during his 2019 Coca Cola Fest performance in Mexico City. Complete with a pair of his highly sought-after J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Colores Y Vibras” sneakers from his collaboration with Nike, the figure is rocking J Balvin’s quintessential style from head to toe. J Balvin is set to take center stage at Club T, surrounded by a thrilling new environment that draws inspiration from his dynamic “Proyecto de Colores.” Visitors will step into a mini ultra-lounge busting with electrifying colors and oversized pop imagery, transforming the space into an unforgettable club experience.

“J Balvin’s wax figures at Madame Tussauds New York and Madame Tussauds Las Vegas epitomizes his indelible influence on music and culture,” said Matthew Clarkson, Head of Marketing at Madame Tussauds USA. “With our newly renovated Music experience in New York and the brand new Club T in Las Vegas, his presence adds another dimension to the immersive experiences we offer. It’s a testament to his enduring impact and our dedication to creating dynamic experiences that resonate with visitors worldwide.”

Throughout his career, J Balvin has scored 18 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and ranks among the top 10 most streamed artists worldwide with his 51.8 million monthly Spotify listeners, further underscoring his monumental popularity and reach. J Balvin continues to push the barriers of music by leading the charge and paving the way for the new generation of Latin artists and has been accredited as one of the first in the genre to successfully build the bridge from Reggaeton to the mainstream.
