Jennifer Lopez and Rauw Alejandro collaborate on "Cambia el Paso"

July 06, 2021

The sparkling and timelessly charming Jennifer Lopez joins forces with the rising star Rauw Alejandro in a new single entitled "Cambia el Paso".

The fiery song marks the first release of the American singer for 2021 as well as her first collaboration with the Puerto Rican artist.

"Cambia el Paso" is a reggaeton-influenced pop song produced by Grammy-winning regular contributor J Lo, Trevor Muzzy.

The title of the song translates into Greek as "Change the Step", a phrase that reflects the meaning that Jennifer Lopez wants to give to "Cambia el Paso".

"The song is about change and not being afraid to take action," the singer said on Pitbull's "Globalization" show on SiriusXM.

"Just take action, go ahead, do what you have to do. If something does not seem right to you, whatever it is in your life, just make that move and dance. "Dancing is life and joy and happiness", he explained.

Jennifer Lopez added that the lyrics of "Cambia el Paso" and the song's references to the dance are allegorical.

"I am talking about something else. All he wants to do is dance, dance, dance, dance again. You have to live. You have to become yourself. You have to be happy. "And that is the theme of this song," he said.

The collaboration of Jennifer Lopez and Rauw Alejandro in "Cambia el Paso" is released by Sony Music Latin and will soon be released on screens with a music video recently shot in Miami.

Jennifer Lopez is currently putting the finishing touches on her ninth album, her first Spanish-language record since 2007.

Last year the singer shared a series of successful singles such as "In The Morning", but also two collaborations with Maluma on the songs "Pa 'Ti" and "Lonely" which have a total of over 100 million streams, being two of the most successful Spanish-speaking hits in Jennifer Lopez's long career.

On the other hand, Rauw Alejandro released his second full-length album a few days ago, entitled "Vice Versa", which proves his intention to change the sound of latin urban music on his own.
