Jennifer Lopez and Maluma finally take the stage together—but not for the reasons you might think.
On Friday, October 4, the Hustlers star joined Colombian singer Maluma on stage at Madison Square Garden in New York City. However, it wasn’t just any surprise appearance.
The two Latin music stars seized the moment and used the 25-year-old singer’s sold-out concert in NYC as the perfect backdrop to film one of their scenes for their upcoming rom-com, Marry Me.
According to HOLA! USA magazine, fans “roared as J.Lo rose up centerstage in a spume of spoke like a Greek goddess.” The 50-year-old actress looked breathtaking in her gold-ensemble and bold lip color. While her intricate gown gave us major J.Lo vibes, we should point out that on stage, she was channeling her Marry Me character, “Kat.”
As film and camera crew hovered near them on stage at Madison Square Garden, the duet performed J.Lo and Marc Anthony’s hit song “No Me Ames.”
Marry Me follows Lopez, a pop star, who finds out her fiancé (played by Maluma) has been cheating on her with her assistant minutes before she’s set to marry him.
As soon as Lopez’s character finds out the heartbreaking news, she spontaneously picks a random man (played by Owen Wilson) from the audience to marry instead.
The upcoming rom-com will mark Wilson and Lopez’s first on-screen collaboration since 1997’s Anaconda. According to Entertainment Tonight, the two were also recently spotted filming at Deno’s Wonder Wheel Amusement Park at Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York.
