Jaws dropped when the NFL and Pepsi, the Super Bowl Halftime Show sponsors, officially announced Jennifer Lopez and Shakira would co-headline the 2020 ‘biggest spectacle on Earth.’
As the performers were respectively capable of bringing over 20 years of hits to the event, some critics argued it would be impossible for divas of their magnitude to fairly share the platform.
February 2, 2020 couldn’t prove them more wrong.
Earning thumbs-up from critics, celebrities, and fans alike, the energetic showing brought winding hips, high fashion, big big booty, and a brigade of hits. For these reasons and more, over 100 million tune in to see the twosome touchdown in Miami.
Thanks to the refreshed exposure to the ladies’ catalogs, sales and streams of their biggest hits skyrocketed. Such was especially the case for Shakira as her tunes ‘Hips Don’t Lie’ and ‘Whenever, Wherever’ zoomed to the top of real-time sales tallies – outpacing the performance of many of Lopez’s songs on the same digital platforms.
When the dust settled, J.Lo & Shaki were not only penciled in history books for becoming the first Latin female headliners of the Super Bowl Halftime Show but also nabbed four EMMY nods as a result.
