Releasing three music videos last month in collaboration with artists like m-flo, Bad Bunny, and The Black Eyed Peas, J Balvin is on a roll—and he’s not stopping at just the music scene. The Colombian singer and rapper recently collaborated with Modernica Inc., launchinga line of furniture from fiberglass and upholstered chairs to custom printed daybeds, all featuring artwork by visual artist Louis de Guzman. The theme? Spongebob Squarepants!
Nickelodeon’s beloved show starring the underwater, pineapple-dwelling sponge celebrated its 20th anniversary last May 1st, and J Balvin, with his quirky almost-cartoon like appearance and style, is the perfect artist for the network to do a special collaboration with to create merchandise. And if you think home goods, apparel, and art are the only things we’ll get, think again!
Tapping LA-based artist Ian Delucca for a next-level work of art, the reggaeton superstar and fashion connoisseur created the ultimate fly masterpiece—the icing on the celebratory anniversary cake!—a Spongebob Squarepants grill. Made out of 14k yellow gold, the 6 on 6 grillz are a certified show-stopper with its bold PopArt design by Louis de Guzman, featuring everyone’s favorite yellow fry cook,of course!
The one-of-a-kind grillz (that look like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle coming together) comes with a pink-bristled silver toothbrush and a custom RIMOWA hand-luggage case showcasing artwork featuring other Spongebob Squarepants characters and a mini-J Balvin icon.
With the number of fans both Spongebob Squarepants and J Balvin have, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if the super dope top and bottom fronts get quickly sold out!
