Rumors of a possible collaboration between Bronx-bred stars Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B have been swirling on social media since last year. Now, Jenny from the block is confirming that the two will indeed be making money moves together.
“I feel like you already know that I collaborated with Cardi B,” Lopez told Latina.com. “I do have a record coming out with her and it’s coming out soon. The name of the song is ‘Dinero.’ I don’t know what the video is going to be yet but we’ll see what we come up with.”
Last month, J.Lo gave a sneak peek of the Spanglish song at the 11th annual mega concert Calibash, which took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Jan. 20. The preview of the forthcoming single teased fans that a possible collaboration was in the works. Rumors of a project between the two Latinas actually goes way back to December when Lopez’s boyfriend of one year Alex Rodriguez posted an Instagram live from a music studio, hinting at a collab. During the live feed, J.Lo asks music producer DJ Khaled: “Cardi’s just on that one part. Do you think we should do some ad-libs with her?”
Cardi, a longtime fan of the Shades of Blue star, cheered her on at the Calibash concert as Lopez covered her smash hit “Bodak Yellow” during a medley. “This is a Bronx girl dream,” the chart-topping rapper captioned a clip of the performance with a crying-smiling emoji. “I just can’t believe I.T… The mother @jlo.” And Lopez is giving the love right back: Over Super Bowl weekend, J. Lo danced to Cardi’s mega hit in an Instagram Stories video shared by her beau.
