Bryan Adams, Jennifer Lopez team up for single ‘That’s How Strong Our Love is’

LISTEN: Bryan Adams' latest single, That's How Strong Our Love is, featuring J-Lo

Bryan Adams just dropped his latest single — That’s How Strong Our Love is — and it features Jennifer Lopez, to the surprise of many.

An unexpected pairing, yes. But one that might be worth checking out for fans of J-Lo or the Canadian rocker.

The single comes from the Summer of ’69 singer’s long-awaited and upcoming album, Shine a Light.

The record was unveiled last month as the follow-up to the 59-year-old’s last effort, Get Up (2015). It will be released through Universal on March 1.

Before taking the stage for an explosive Motown tribute performance with Smokey Robinson, Lopez shared the stage with a lineup of powerful female icons, including: former First Lady Michelle ObamaLady Gaga, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Alicia Keys — who served as this year’s host.

Adams had nothing but good to say about On the Floor singer Lopez.

“Working with Jennifer was a dream,” he told UDiscoverMusic, “our voices sound amazing together.”

Not only that, Lopez revealed plans for her second ever concert tour on Wednesday morning — it’s been nearly seven years since her last, the Dance Again world tour.

Lopez announced the long-awaited It’s My Party: The Live Celebration tour during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

The 24-date North American trek serves as a celebration for the singer’s upcoming 50th birthday.
