Following a global virtual Pokémon music concert starring Post Malone, The Pokémon Company International unveiled more details for its yearlong music program celebrating 25 years of the franchise. At the end of the online event, J Balvin was revealed as one of the premier artists teaming up with Pokémon as part of the P25 Music program in partnership with Universal Music Group. The global reggaeton superstar joins previously announced program headliner and pop icon Katy Perry as well as Post Malone in a year of collaborations and surprise activations matching music artists with the Pokémon brand.
“Pokémon is pulling out all the stops for P25 Music, and I’m thrilled to join the program as one of its premier collaborators,” said J Balvin. “I’m looking forward to adding my own unique flavor to this huge Pokémon party and adding more good vibes to the celebration.”
The release of each song will be joined by a music video and an exclusive merchandise collection celebrating each artist and Pokémon. Just like Pokémon video game adventures, new surprises and discoveries happen along the journey. In addition to these musicians, Pokémon will enlist the help of some of the buzziest new artists from around the world for additional song collaborations.
