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.

Kicking off the soundtrack is Tainy and J Balvin’s “Agua” dropped Thursday, July 9.

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.

The soundtrack, set to be released via NEON16/Interscope Records, will include songs by TygaSwae LeeLil MoseyWeezerSnoop DoggThe Flaming LipsKenny G and Cyndi Lauper, to name a few. Additionally, Hans Zimmer is expected to score the film.
