AceShowbiz - Jennifer Lopez has a lot to share during her performance at the 2018 Calibash, which was held on Saturday, January 20 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Not only she unveiled her Skrillex-assisted track "Could It Be Us", but she also previewed her highly-anticipated collaboration with Cardi B.
Lopez, who donned a sexy red bodysuit, began her performance with her 2002 hit "Jenny from the Block" before premiering the Skrillex collaboration. Lopez exclaimed, "I wanna shout out to my body Skrillex!" into the mic before belting out the song. She also told the concertgoers to "look out for the remix from [Calvin Harris]."
The 48-year-old New York City-born songstress also previewed at the annual event a new Spanglish track entitled "Yo Quiero Dinero", which literally translated as "I Want Money", hinting at Cardi collaboration. Footage of her performance was shared on her Instagram account.
Lopez first teased the Cardi collaboration back in December last year during a conversation with DJ Khaled, which was captured on Instagram and shared on YouTube. In the video, Lopez and Khaled could be seen discussing Cardi's part on the song. "Cardi's just on that one part, do you think we should do some adlibs with her?" Lopez asked, to which the DJ answered, "Just tell her, 'Are you good, and do you wanna put anything on this? 'Cause we're releasing it tomorrow.' "
Last week, Khaled opened up to Entertainment Tonight about the said collaboration. "Everything's top secret, [but] I can tell you this: J.Lo's got some new music coming," he told the webloid. "I want to thank J.Lo for letting me be one of the producers amongst other great ones, and a feature on the record. I'm grateful."
The 42-year-old producer also reiterated how proud he is of Cardi and all of her accomplishments. "Nothing but love for Cardi B and all the new artists out there doing their thing," he added.
