The latest in a litany of hit records, Jennifer Lopez released ‘Cambia el Paso’ as an ode to moving past the end of another personal relationship.
In a duet with Reggaeton superstar Rauw Alejandro, the Spanish-language single J-Lo’s been teasing since May when she promised “sexy summer fun,” depicts the narrative of a lady who leaves an unworthy guy. Performed in Spanish, the song’s lyrics allude to a woman terminating a relationship: He doesn’t deserve to have her in his arms / She knows it, she knows it / Your life is better now without him … You don’t need anyone to be okay / She does not fail, she does not fail.”
The song, translated in English to “Change the Step” features inspirational lyrics about pushing forward and not being frightened of change. During last week’s interview with SiriusXM’s Pitbull’s Globalization show, Lopez expounded on the song’s significance, saying “The song is about embracing change and refusing to be afraid to take the first step. Simply take the first step, go forward, and complete the task at hand. Make that move and dance if something isn’t feeling right in your life, whatever it is. Dance is life, joy, and happiness.”
According to reliable sources, Lopez is currently working on her ninth studio album, her first Spanish-language full length since 2007. The musician/actress released several singles in 2020, including “In the Morning” and her “Pa’ Ti” and “Lonely” collaborations with Maluma, And after calling off her engagement to baseball superstar Alex Rodriguez earlier this year, J-Lo has reunited with her former boyfriend, Ben Affleck.
