JLo & Shakira to rock the Super Bowl

Jennifer Lopez took to twitter to confirm that she would be this year’s Super Bowl halftime performer. But here’s the plot twist: she won’t be performing alone, fellow Latin music powerhouse Shakira will also be joining her. Both artists posted pictures of each, hinting at a possible collab on stage.

The Super Bowl will take place at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium. Previously, the only Latin performers to take the Super Bowl halftime stage are Gloria Estefan in 1992 and 1999 and Enrique Iglesias alongside a slew of other artists in 2000.

The Super Bowl performance will be a follow-up to Lopez’s ‘It’s My Party’ tour which doubled as a birthday celebration. While kicking off her 24-city North American tour in June — her first in over six years — at The Forum in Los Angeles, Lopez performed all of her hits, spanning from ‘If You Had My Love’ and ‘Jenny From the Block’ from her 1999 debut studio album, to her latest single, ‘Medicine.’

Shakira’s also been equally active in the music scene as just last year, she had kicked off her El Dorado World Tour, in June 2018. And just last month it was announced that Shakira’s tour will be brought to theaters this fall, it will premiere in a one-night event on November 13.
