Following an introduction — and warning, from host Taraji P. Henson, that their performance would melt TVs — Maluma and Jennifer Lopez got hot and heavy for their collaboration “Pa Ti + Lonely” at the American Music Awards on Sunday (Nov. 22). Henson had called them “two of the biggest Latin stars on the planet” — and the pair proved why.
After a sensual opening from Lopez, during which she sat atop a table engulfed in shadows, Maluma joined in allowing them to sing directly into one another’s faces. Then, Lopez once again took center stage, delivering an iconic chair routine in front of bars and surrounded by dancers in variations of her own mesh body suit before ending the set back-to-back with Maluma.
It’s yet another taste of what’s to come from the superstars in their upcoming film Marry Me, out next year. “Pa Ti + Lonely” is featured on its soundtrack.
Watch the full performance below.
