Jennifer Lopez and Lin-Manuel Miranda Team Up For Song To benefit Victims In Orlando
Two of the hottest latinos in the world of music have come together for a dream team collab for a new track to benefit the victims of the Orlando massacre.
Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of the Broadway smash, “Hamilton,” and pop sensation Jennifer Lopez teased their collaboration, “Love Make the World Go Round,” on social media Monday.
“Me and @Lin_Manuel working in studio on something very special,” Lopez tweeted with a 30-second clip on the song.

Miranda shared the same video, writing: “Sooo @JLo & yours truly went in on a tune that will benefit https://hispanicfederation.org/SomosOrlando/ Here’s a taste!”
In the track Miranda raps while Lopez belts out vocals.
“What we got is love, even when the sinners hate us,” Miranda intones. “We cannot let ’em diminish or intimidate us. We sing out. We got the rhythm and truth on our side. We cut through the divide, and we do it with pride.”
Lopez comes in on the refrain, “Love make the world go around.”
Proceeds of the song are slated to go to the Hispanic Federation’s Proyecto Somos Orlando.
This new single comes just weeks after 49 people were killed at a gay night club in Orlando. The majority of the victims were Latinos, many of them of Puerto Rican descent.
Are you looking forward to the dream team and their inspiring new song?!
