“The Lopez and Maluma collaboration emphasizes the undeniable crossover success of Latin music this year, as the show has also expanded categories in both Latin and Hip-Hop genres to match its overarching popularity,” ABC said in a statement.

The pair’s romantic comedy was originally scheduled to be released Valentine’s Day weekend (Feb. 12), but Universal decided this week to push the movie’s release date back to May 14. Maluma’s upcoming performance will mark his American Music Awards debut, while Jennifer has hosted and performed at the ceremony in the past.

The lineup of performers for this year’s fan-voted award show also includes Bad Bunny, BTS, Dua Lipa, Lil Baby, Megan Thee Stallion and Shawn Mendes. Karol G, Justin Bieber, J Balvin, Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Becky G, and Taylor Swift are among this year’s nominees.

The 2020 American Music Awards will broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Nov. 22 at 8 p.m. EST, on ABC.
