Recently Jennifer Lopez unveiled her long-rumored collaboration with Skrillex live in concert, and now the pop icon’s newest track, “Us,” is finally ready to see the light of day. Skrillex and his trusted co-proprietor of crossover pop products, Poo Bear, join Jenny From The Block on a vivacious, salsa-inspired dance piece that follows “Would You Ever‘s” basic formula of playful vocal chops in the melody and comfortable percussion rhythms. It’s a palatable radio-primed pop number that will have Skrillex diehards weeping, commercial EDM consumers satisfied, and fans from J.Lo’s late ’90s heyday scratching their heads.
“Us” comes ahead of Lopez’s promised full-length Spanish project, which is due sometime later this year via Sony’s Epic Records. The album is set to be produced by Lopez’s ex-husband Marc Anthony. With Latin music experiencing such a swell right now, it’s not entirely surprising to see Sonny Moore link up with one of the biggest Latin pop stars of all time to deliver his contribution to the flavor of the moment.
