J.Lo is ready to roll out “Dinero.”
Months after announcing a collaboration with Cardi B and DJ Khaled, Jennifer Lopez shot a video for her powerhouse single.
The Father of Asahd shared images of the trio on set. He also posted behind-the-scenes looks featuring Jenny from the Block. At around the same time, short clips from the luxurious set surfaced on Instagram.

Khaled confirmed the collaboration back in December. “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.”
Lopez also spoke about the video in December. “It’s cinematic,” she said. “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.” Khaled added: “The video idea is gonna make the record even more crazier.”
Originally, the song was due in January. However, Lopez pushed it back and previewed the song at Calibash. “Yo quiero dinero,” she sings on he cut, which translates to “I love money” or “I want money.” Cardi celebrated the preview. “This is a Bronx girl dream,” she said. “I just can’t believe I.T.”
J.Lo may premiere “Dinero” live at the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards on Thursday (April 26). She is set to take the stage in Las Vegas for what’s being billed as a “special performance.”
