Jennifer Lopez and Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda continue to spread the positive vibes with the release of the new music video for their joint track “Love Make the World Go Round.”
The video begins with an emotional callback to Miranda’s impassioned acceptance speech at the 2016 Tony Awards, in which he asserted “love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love” in support of the LGBT community. The high-energy clip continues as Lopez and Miranda appear in the recording booth belting the song’s lyrics, dancing together in a music studio, and performing the track in front of a large crowd just outside New York City’s Richard Rodgers Theatre.
The pair first released the uptempo song in July following the deadly massacre at Orlando’s Pulse nightclub in June. Produced by The Monsters and the Strangerz, the song features a dancehall-inspired, pop-infused beat with lyrics calling for unity, compassion, understanding, and love in the face of darkness.
“Love Make the World Go Round” debuted and peaked at No. 72 on the Billboard Hot 100 shortly following its release, becoming Lopez’s highest-charting single since the Iggy Azalea-assisted “Booty” hit No. 18 two years ago. Her 2016 single “Ain’t Your Mamma” stalled at No. 76.
