Jennifer Lopez and Wisin sizzle with chemistry in her new music video “Amor Amor Amor,” which was filmed on a New York City subway. In the hot Spanish-language single, J.Lo sings about the thrill of new love.  Boyfriend Alex Rodriguez may be the inspiration for the seductive gaze she gives the camera, but fellow Puerto Rican singer Wisin is the lucky guy who receives her lusty looks.

This is the third collaboration for the musical duo, who also joined forces for music video “Adrenalina” with Ricky Martin and “Follow the Leader” with Yandel.  Wisin tells PEOPLE CHICA working with the superstar never looses its luster.  “Working with Jennifer is always an honor,” he says. “It’s always an honor to work with talented people who are visionary and want to keep growing. I respect her very much in many aspects. At the beginning of my career she was one of the big artists that gave me an opportunity and believed in what we did.”

Wisin helped to produce “Amor Amor Amor,” and wrote some of the lyrics for the romantic ballad. “I think it’s a great blessing that Jennifer dares to do songs like this,” he says of the catchy tune. “I tried to take her towards a more urban, rhythmic and electronic sound, and I think we achieved that.”

On Nov. 10, Wisin also released his own music video “Move Your Body,” featuring Bad Bunny and Timbaland. “When I started writing it, I knew this song could be a big hit,” he says of his adrenaline-packed new single. “I think it’s time to give the audience something different, something new, because there is a lot of competition out there.”

“Move Your Body” appears on his new album Victory. “It’s a versatile album where I consolidate myself as a producer, as a musician and a singer,” he reflects. “I dared to do new things. It’s an album that was carefully crafted, well mixed and filled with musical fusions and the right kind of collaborations.”

His friend and former musical mate Yandel of Wisin & Yandel appears on two tracks from the new record. “Our relationship is professional but it’s also very personal, it’s based on respect and admiration,” he says of Yandel.

His new disc is dedicated to the memory of his daughter Victoria Yireh, who passed away a month after her birth from a rare chromosomal disorder called Trisomy 13 last year.

After enduring her devastating loss, he says that he and his wife Yomaira Ortiz, as well as their kids, Yelena, 10 and Dylan, 7, are staying strong as a family. “I give thanks and glory to God for the opportunity to be alive and doing what I love which is making music. This Christmas will be a joyful one for many reasons,” he says, “I have the best relationship with my wife and kids and with my fans. I feel happy and balanced.”
