Thankfully, this means we only have one more day to wait for the collaboration that is sure to set our hearts on fire. In the clip, which was released by both JLo and Bad Bunny, the two music performers sing and dance amidst a tropical background. The release comes just days before Bad Bunny slated to perform at the 2018 Latin Grammy Awards alongside JLo’s ex-hubby Marc Anthony and Will Smith for the opening act, during which they are set to perform “Está Rico,” according to Billboard. While Lopez is currently not slated to appear during the 19th annual ceremony, which will be broadcast live on November 15th from the Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena on Univision, the timing for the release of “Te Guste” has us feeling plenty hopeful.
With the end of 2018 almost here, the “Te Guste” tease has fans curious if JLo’s latest album is finally done. “I really love singing in Spanish,” the singer told HOLA! magazine last year. “There’s just something about it that is more romantic and passionate to me, and that’s such a core part of who I am. I feel like I sing better in Spanish. We’re all interpreting songs as we go through life, right?”
Earlier this year, Lopez released Spanish-language song “El Anillo” and “Se Acabó el Amor” with Abraham Mateo and Yandel. Last year, in anticipation of the new record (her first Spanish-language album since 2007’s Como Ama una Mujer), JLo also released “Ni Tú Ni Yo” featuring Gente de Zona and “Amor, Amor, Amor” with Yandel’s former partner, Wisin.
It didn’t take long for fans of JLo and Bad Bunny to commence their freak out on social media.

Some simply call her Queen. Which, of course, is an appropriate name for the famed singer.
Fans are reacting to the video with tons of excitement.

If all caps doesn’t spell excitement, then we don’t know what does. The teaser for the upcoming music video does, indeed, look pretty amazing..
Meanwhile, others are simply thrilled that the collaboration is really happening.

Nope, it’s not a myth! Jennifer Lopez and Bad Bunny have truly teamed up for what’s sure to be our favorite song this year. And with those tropical-themed tunes, we’re going to be dreaming of our next beach vacation while listening to this tune all winter long.
What fans really want to know, though, is whether this means that JLo’s highly anticipated Spanish-language album, Por Primera Vez, is finally going to be released. The album was originally slated to be released in 2017 but it, um, has been delayed.
