Jennifer Lopez Taps Cardi B for New Collaboration
Major collaboration alert! After working with Nicki Minaj, Migos, and G-Eazy, Cardi B is linking up with Jennifer Lopez on an upcoming track, with some help from DJ Khaled.
Khaled took to Instagram to build up anticipation for the unnamed song. “I told the icon @jlo that not only do I see her vision. I am honored and grateful to have the opportunity to be involved,” he wrote. “The key 🔑 is to express your greatness with clarity and passion. FAN LUV! J LO GOT NEW MUSIC COMING.”
Although Khaled didn’t reveal the featured act or producer in his post, J.Lo’s beau Alex Rodriguez shared videos from the candid studio conversation on Instagram Live (via HHNM). It was during this convo that Khaled and Lopez discussed Bardi’s appearance.
At one point, J.Lo wonders if Cardi should incorporate more ad-libs on the joint and she debates some musical changes. “I heard the new one today and I liked it,” said Khaled of the unfinished track. “I liked the one you sent me before too.”
Fans should expect a video for the single, too. “The video idea is gonna make the record even more crazier,” said Khaled, while Lopez added: “It’s cinematic. It has those themes. I was just trying to connect it to the song where it’s just not the typical reggaeton, bachata, hip-hop video that everybody does all the time.”
According to the conversation, the as-yet-untitled track could be released the first week of January, or rather, Jenuary. Stay tuned!
