The hotly-anticipated Jennifer Lopez and Maluma collaborations are here. The Nuyorican superstar and the Colombian heartthrob team up for the cinematic “Pa’ Ti” and “Lonely” music videos.
Ahead of Maluma’s big screen debut in Marry Me, they have released their small screen collaborations “Pa’ Ti” and “Lonely.” With the addition of Lopez, Maluma is on a streak of having teamed up with Latin music’s queens like Shakira, Thalía, and Anitta. He also previously worked with the Queen of Pop Madonna.
Lopez penned “Pa’ Ti” with Maluma and producers Edgar “Edge” Barrera and Jon Leone, who are behind Camilo and Mau y Ricky’s recent hits. Among the two collaborations, this is the more sensual, slow-burn one that J. Lo and Maluma are irresistible on. Edge and Leone are also behind “Lonely,” a Latin trap-influenced thirst trap where Maluma pines for a long-gone Lopez, but she continues to lead him on. They turn up the heat on that one.
The music videos for “Pa’ Ti” and “Lonely” were directed by Jessy Terrero in Huntington, N.Y. Lopez and Maluma bring the blockbuster drama to their steamy video series. “Pa’ Ti” leads into “Lonely” as a cat-and-mouse game unfolds and both stars entrap each other in their thrilling romance. They serve telenovela realness with all the surprise twists and turns. In the end, Jenny from the Block comes out a boss like always.
“Pa’ Ti” and “Lonely” will be featured in Marry Me and included on the movie’s soundtrack. Marry Me will be released to theaters right before Valentine’s Day on Feb. 12, 2021.
