Maluma is getting his own wax figure at Madame Tussauds in Orlando, Billboard has learned.
The Colombian superstar, who’s currently making the rounds with his heartfelt pop-reggaeton single “Sobrio,” shared the exciting news Wednesday (Aug. 11) on NBC’s Today show by sharing images and videos of his wax figure in the making. In true “waxed” fashion, studio artists took hundreds of measurements and captured photographs from every angle, and color-matched all the singer’s features.
The singer/songwriter was decked out in an all-white Versace double-breasted jacket and black Bottega Veneta shoes for his session.
“I’m a big dreamer,” he said in an official statement. “I remember when I was in high school saying that I wanted to be here at the museum and everything is happening; nothing is too big to make it happen.”
Maluma’s wax figure — which will take nearly six months and 20 studio artists in London to create — will arrive at Madame Tussauds Orlando in 2022. He now joins other Latin music stars to be “waxed” including Selena and Romeo Santos.
