Listen: Jennifer Lopez drops new single 'Dinero' featuring Cardi B & DJ Khaled
The soon to be ubiquitous club-banger drops just days before J Lo debuts it live at the Billboard Music Awards on May 20
Jennifer Lopez just dropped her new single 'Dinero' featuring DJ Khaled and fellow Bronx-based hip-hop queen Cardi B.
As the title suggests, ('Dinero' is Spanish for 'money'), the ostentatious track doesn't care much for modesty. "Me and Benjamin Franco stay at the banco / Getting checks like Nike, everywhere that I go," the track opens, underlined by the freshest summer beat courtesy of DJ Khaled.
Cardi B adds some fresh sheen to the track as well with her guest verse, a call out to the Bronx connection between herself and Jennifer Lopez. "Two bad bitches that came from the Bronx / Cardi from the pole and Jenny from the block," Cardi sneaks into her flow while DJ Khaled offers up his usual shout out to each of the ladies.
Listen to the new single below:
The track is a brilliant strategic move by J Lo, who is slowly testing the waters of the contemporary hip-hop scene yet again. Putting two of the most talked about artists of today - Cardi and DJ Khaled - on a track pretty much ensures that you have an instant club banger.
Yesterday morning (May 16), J Lo took to Instagram to tease her highly-anticipated single. Sporting shimmering gold rings and a fur coat, the single’s cover art shows J-Lo looking as fierce as ever. Check out the cover art for the single via J Lo's Instagram post below:
Jennifer Lopez's last single, 'Us' [ft. Skrillex], came out in February. She also debuted her single 'El Anillo' at this year’s Billboard Latin Music Awards and will also be performing at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards on May 20.
While J Lo's last LP was 2014’s 'A.K.A.', Cardi released her debut album 'Invasion of Privacy' this past April and DJ Khaled’s 'Grateful' came out last June. J Lo and Cardi B were also recently named in TIME’s annual list of the 100 most influential people in the world.
