Jennifer Lopez Drops Bilingual Banger 'Dinero' With DJ Khaled & Cardi B: Listen
"Cardi from the pole and Jenny from the block."
Jennifer Lopez's "Dinero" dropped Thursday (May 17), and the DJ Khaled and Cardi B-assisted track is a dance floor anthem. The song's title translates to "Money," and it's a fiery proclamation of everyone's love for cold hard cash that's brimming with witty bilingual word play.
Over the bass-rumbling trap beat, Lopez repeats: "Yo quiero, yo quiero dinero," which means "I want money" for those who haven't already caught on by now. "They say money talk, but my talking bilingual," Lopez explains in the second verse -- a statement that's definitely true in this song's case.
During the latter half of the song, Cardi takes over, declaring: "Y'all can kiss my ass/ Dame un beso" on a characteristically feisty verse. Khaled's unmistakable ad-lib is heard throughout the three and a half minutes as he hypes up the "two bad bitches that came from the Bronx/Cardi from the pole and Jenny from the block."
"Dinero" follows Lopez's last single, the unabashedly blunt "El Anillo." The Latina powerhouse will be featured on the star-studded lineup of performers at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards this Sunday (May 20).
