J Balvin Gets 2 New Madame Tussauds Wax Figures: ‘Amazing How Dreams Come True’

Madame Tussauds New York and Las Vegas unveiled J Balvin’s two new wax figures on Friday (March 22).

The Colombian hitmaker’s New York figure is dressed in his 2021 Moschino Met Gala ensemble, which consists of an embellished floral three-piece suit replicated by Madame Tussauds to match the original set. Rocking Balvin’s bleach blond buzz cut, the figure pays tribute to the singer’s Met Gala debut.

Meanwhile, the Las Vegas wax figure wears an authentic GUESS outfit provided by Balvin himself, originally worn during his 2019 Coca Cola Fest performance in Mexico City. The number is paired with his J Balvin x Air Jordan 1 Retro High OG “Colores Y Vibras” sneakers from his collaboration with Nike.

The “Mi Gente” artist shared his reaction to his new likenesses in a video posted to Instagram. “Amazing how dreams come true seldom you find yourself face to face with yourself and it’s not a reflection in a mirror hehehehe Triple JoSSSe,” he captioned the clip. “Keep dreaming and believe it yourselves ⚡️ Go see it and take a picture with me Thanks @madametussaudsusa PA LA CULTURA”

In the video, he walks up to his wax figures with a few demands and questions for them. “I was looking for my chains, give them back,” he begins. “You owe money, will you pay me back or not?”

Finally, he asks on behalf of his fans: “When is the album coming? Tell me. We’ve been waiting two years.”

According to a press release, visitors will step into a “mini ultra-lounge busting with electrifying colors and oversized pop imagery, transforming the space into an unforgettable club experience” when visiting Balvin’s figure in Las Vegas.
