Published: Tuesday 29th Dec 2020 by Rashad

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.

    Spotify streams of J.Lo’s music rose by 335% and Shakira’s by 230%. Streams for J.Lo on Amazon Music increased by 432% while Shakira’s rose 150%. Alexa requests for J.Lo rose by 426% while Shakira’s rose 303% . Shakira just won just for 1 day on Itunes lol.

    BILLBOARD 200
    #166, Oral Fixation Vol. 2 (goatkira 1 week)
    #200, Laundry Service (goatkira 1 week)
    #61, Dance Again … The Hits (queen jlo 2 weeks)

    shakira with just one #1 hit hips don’t lie and 0 albums on billboard 200
    It just doesn’t make sense why she was on the superbowl. Well, not unless you factor in that Shakira is managed by Jay-Z’s Roc Nation.
    Meanwhile, Shakira’s biggest claim to US fame in recent years has probably been her forgettable stint as a coach on “The Voice.” Her recording career in the English-language market hasn’t been the same since, well, the ’00s, when she crossed over with hits such as “Whenever, Wherever,” “Hips Don’t Lie” and “She Wolf.”

    Let’s be real: La Lopez has been in the midst of a major moment. Last year, she got engaged to former Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, took her It’s My Party tour on the road and turned 50 in fierce, fabulous fashion. And she didn’t slow her roll after hitting the big 5-0 in July: She scored a hit with her stripper flick “Hustlers,” shut down Milan fashion week by walking the Versace spring 2020 show in a re-creation of that iconic green jungle dress, and even hosted “Saturday Night Live.” Jennifer has a successfull tour and succesfull movie: hustlers , she also won the Icon award by Billboard and MTV Vanguard award.
