Jennifer Lopez Releases New Single 'Us' Produced By Skrillex And Poo Bear
In what could be the most epic collaboration this year, Jennifer Lopez has released a new song called "Us" produced by Skrillex and Poo Bear.
The renowned dance music producers have worked with several big names in the industry including Justin Bieber, Usher, DJ Khaled, and Fifth Harmony. Lopez is their next big collaborator.
"Us" which was released on digital platforms on Friday, Feb. 2, is already going viral. The song landed into the Top 10 of iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart immediately after it became available for purchase and streaming.
The dance track was first teased back in March when the 48-year-old singer posted a short video of herself in a studio working with Skrillex and Poo Bear. Lopez, then, gave a short preview of the song with her collaborators dancing to the catchy chorus.
"Us" is a follow-up to the smash hit "Ain't Your Mama" which now has been streamed over 537 million times on YouTube. The song released back in 2016, also earned an RIAA gold certification.
More Collaborations And A New Album
It has been four years since the Grammy-nominated singer released her last album, A.K.A. The record spawned hit singles such as "First Love," "I Luh Ya Papi," and the viral "Booty" featuring Australian rapper Iggy Azalea.
This year, she will release a new album which will include collaborations with more major artists. She already confirmed that she is working with fellow Grammy nominee Cardi B for a song called "Quiero Dinero."
In "Quiero Dinero," which translates to "I Love Money" or "I Want Money," Lopez sings about her love for the dough. The singer already previewed the Spanish-English track during a performance at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
In a conversation with DJ Khaled, the singer-turned-actress also promised an equally entertaining music video for the collaboration.
"It's cinematic. It has those themes," said Lopez. "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."
In the meantime, fans can catch the singer's performance in AT&T/DIRECTV's Super Saturday Night special on Saturday, Feb. 3. The show will be held in Minneapolis ahead of the much anticipated Super Bowl LII.
