Pokemon 25, an album celebrating 25 years of the Pokemon franchise and featuring 14 songs by 16 different artists, is now available to purchase. The release also reveals that the final song in the album is the Columbian singer J. Balvin's Ten Cuidado.
J. Balvin, real name José Álvaro Osorio Balvín, is a Columbian singer and rapper who is also known as the "Prince of Reggaeton." With more than 35 million records sold worldwide, he's one of the most successful Latin music artists in the world. The music video for his contribution to the Pokemon 25 album, Ten Cuidado, features a good variety of Pokemon. Pikachu, unsurprisingly, makes an appearance, but we also get to see some other lesser-known Pokemon, such as Loudred and Totodile. Most notably is a Hitmontop that gets the chance to show off its sick breakdancing moves.
As for the other artists and songs in the Pokemon 25 album, we've got:
- Electric by Katy Perry
- Phases by Jax Jones and Sinead Harnett
- Take It Home by Mabel
- Believing by Lil Yachty
- Wonderful by Cyn
- Got 'em by Vince Staples
- Game Girl by Louane
- Art Show by Tierra Whack
- Only Wanna Be With You by Post Malone
- Reconnect by Yaffle, Daichi Yamamoto, and AAAMYYY
- Remixes of Take It Home, Wonderful, and Got 'em by ZHU, along with Trombone Shorty for Got 'em
Sadly, the album doesn't contain Bump of Chicken's Acacia, which played alongside an amazing music video animated by the Japanese animation studio Bones, which has worked on anime such as My Hero Academia and Mob Psycho 100.
Pokemon 25 is available to stream or purchase right now.
