A few weeks back when J Balvin announced his new album, Colores, he revealed that Takashi Murakami designed the artwork for the project. Now as we are nearing the release of the LP, the Colombian musician shares the colorful artwork by the Japanese contemporary artist.

"This cover represents dreams because I always wanted to work with Takashi Murakami," Balvin said in an Instagram post. "Five years ago I drew a flower and didn't know he would end up collaborating with me. And what better way to show color than flowers? It was meant to be."

As you can see below, the Colores album cover incorporates Murakami's signature flower designs, perfectly adhering to the name of the project, which translates to "colors."

J Balvin has yet to announce a specific release date for Colores, but we do know that it will be arriving in March. The LP is expected to feature singles “Blanco” and “Morado,” with several tracks produced by frequent collaborator Sky Rompiendo.

Leading up to the release of Colores, Balvin recently debuted his second collaboration with GUESS featuring a collection inspired by the album.
