The proud mamá spoke to Good Morning America about Emme, who sang with her at this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show, and her love of sloths — which inspired the tween’s prayers book.
Emme came up with the idea with her nanny as she thought kids needed to be taught to pray, according to Lopez. “They just kind of had this conversation, and she was like, ‘Maybe we can write a book where we can save the sloths, and we can use the money to save the sloths,'” Lopez told GMA. “I’m so proud of her to author her first book at 12 years old. She’s way, way ahead of me.”
Lopez also spoke about her new two-part song collab, “Pa Ti” and “Lonely,” with Colombian superstar Maluma. “We came up with these two songs that we literally fell in love with, and we were like, ‘We should put these out before the film and play our characters Kat and Bastian and introduce everybody to these two amazing characters from the movie [Marry Me]’,” Lopez said.
The pair will speak about their new music together, their upcoming film, Marry Me — which will be packed with new original songs from both Lopez and Maluma — as well as how Latinos are changing the landscape in both Hollywood and the music industry during their can’t-miss Superstar Q&A set to take place during the 2020 Billboard Latin Music Week.
The three-day immersive experience dedicated to Latin music, culture and entertainment, is taking place virtually on Oct. 20-23.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary as the longest running and biggest Latin music industry, the event will feature intimate artist conversations, industry panels, workshops and performances. Additional participants and schedule details will be announced in the coming weeks. To reserve a spot and receive updates, RSVP here.
