Jennifer Lopez and Cardi B could possibly be collaborating together in a new DJ Khaled song and that would totally make 2018 an amazing year. Can you imagine the Bronx divas joining in a hit song? It's a smash in the works of the rumors turn out to be true. Khaled recently teased to be working on a track with JLo that we saw during an Instagram Live that Alex Rodriguez shared and now a second leak insinuates that the "Bodak Yellow" hitmaker is part of that collab as well.

"WHEN J LO PULLS UP TO WE THE BEST STUDIO! Icon moment alert! Icon announcement alert. Icon visual alert. Icon everything ALERT!!! @jlo got New music coming . Be Paitient!!! Patience is a gift and a talent, he wrote on Instagram. He then teased and questioned who else it would feature. “I told the icon @jlo that not only do I see her vision. I am honored and grateful to have the opportunity to be involved. The key is to express your greatness with clarity and passion,” Khaled wrote.

Cardi B is having an incredible year shattering records following her hit single "Bodak Yellow." The rapper just released a new song called "Bartier Cardi" and was excited to see that it had cracked the Top 10 in the iTunes charts. "Super happy and super blessed to have 4 songs on the hip hop charts right now on iTunes," she wrote on Instagram. "I️ been very overwhelmed today because it’s like starting all over again. I'm going to let you guys in on my music journey [because] all this sh** is new to me. It’s a lot of work and it’s very emotional specially when the world is watching but once you start you can’t finish!"

Cardi B recently made history with "Bodak Yellow" as the first female rapper to top the Hot 100 Billboard music chart in 19 years and the first rapper of Dominican descent to ever reach that place in the chart. The previous record holder was Lauryn Hill, who topped the chart with no other billed artist. Cardi B, from the Bronx, had the number two spot last week and was able to overtake and dethrone "Look What You Made Me Do" by Taylor Swift. The Dominican rapper even threw a little shade at the former queen when she celebrated her number one spot by singing the chorus of the tune she toppled.

Cardi B, born Belcalis Almanzar to a Dominican father and Trinidadian mother, grew up in the South Bronx. She is only the fifth female rapper to top the Hot 100 after Lil' Kim who was featured on "Lady Marmalade," Shawnna who collaborated with Ludacris on "Stand Up," Iggy Azalea who led with "Fancy" along with Charli XCX. According to Billboard, Cardi B is also the first female solo artist to lead the Hot 100 list with no featured artist since Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass."
