J.Lo and Cardi B are all about the money on “Quiero Dinero.” Over the weekend, Jennifer Lopez previewed their cash-loving collaboration at Calibash, where she also offered a nod to Rihanna and Cardi B.
During her show-stopping performance at L.A.’s Staples Center, J.Lo delivered a dance medley, soundtracked by RiRi’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” and Bacardi’s “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves).”
“Quiero Dinero” is a Spanglish track, with Lopez singing about her love for the dough. “Yo quiero dinero,” she adds over a booming instrumental. “I just want the green, want the money, want the cash.”
“Quiero Dinero,” which roughly translated means “I Love Money” or “I Want Money,” has been in the works for quite some time. In December, J.Lo teased the collaboration during a conversation with DJ Khaled, which was captured on Instagram.
Lopez also promised that a video for their collab would follow. “It’s cinematic. It has those themes,” she explained. “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.”
Cardi, who hails from the Bronx like Jennifer Lopez, celebrated her latest collaboration. “This is a Bronx girl dream,” she said. “I just can’t believe I.T.”
