Update (March 5): The soundtrack is out now; stream and listen to it below. SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run is also now available to watch on Paramount+ and VOD.
Paramount Animation and Nickelodeon have joined forces with NEON16 to bring to life the SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run movie soundtrack.
Executive produced by award-winning producer Tainy and renowned industry leader Lex Borrero, NEON16 curated the official soundtrack of the forthcoming animated film. This marks the first time the Latin multimedia company and talent incubator founded in 2019 partners with the animated franchise.
The soundtrack, set to be released via NEON16/Interscope Records, will include songs by Tyga, Swae Lee, Lil Mosey, Weezer, Snoop Dogg, The Flaming Lips, Kenny G and Cyndi Lauper, to name a few. Additionally, Hans Zimmer is expected to score the film.
Kicking off the soundtrack is Tainy and J Balvin’s “Agua” dropping Thursday, July 9. “I know that this song has good vibes and a lot of happiness, which we need during these moments,” Balvin expressed on Instagram.
The uptempo track fuses the iconic SpongeBob intro with a party-starting reggaeton and bass melody. “This is an underwater party/baby, bring your umbrella / we’re dancing like fish in the sea, like fish in the sea,” the infectious chorus notes.
SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run will debut digitally in the U.S via Paramount+ and premium video on demand in early 2021.
