American singer and actress Jennifer Lopez and Colombian singer-songwriter Maluma have released the soundtrack album to the 2022 film, “Marry Me.”
“Marry Me (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)” was released by Universal Studios and Sony Music Latin.
While promoting her single “Medicine” in April 2019, Lopez told Ebro Darden of Beats 1 radio that the next album she releases will “probably be with a new movie”. Later that same month, it was announced that she would be starring alongside Owen Wilson in the romantic comedy, Marry Me (2022).
In July 2019, Colombian singer Maluma was cast to play Lopez’s fiancé in the film. During their first week of shooting, on October 5, 2019, Lopez and Maluma performed her song “No Me Ames” during his show at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
In February 2020, Lopez announced that she would be releasing a new album alongside Marry Me that would also serve as the film’s soundtrack. She told Jimmy Fallon during an interview that the album would feature “six or eight” songs performed by herself and “two or three” songs performed by Maluma, as well as a duet between the two that is performed as both an uptempo and a ballad.
After receiving the script for Marry Me, Lopez and her team started finding places in the film where they could place music. According to the singer, “you can’t have a movie about two pop stars who are performing and not have a soundtrack”. While on the It’s My Party tour during the summer of 2019, she listened to 100 songs submitted by different writers and producers and narrowed it down to “seven or eight” songs to be featured in the film.
The process of creating the soundtrack was “really difficult” for Lopez due to the fact that she wasn’t making a “J.Lo album” and was instead “writing songs for the story”.
After signing onto the project, Maluma started writing songs with his long-time producer Edgar Barrera. The first song they wrote was “Segundo”, which was met with positive reception from the studio and director. After being asked to do “another, more commercial reggaeton song”, they wrote a second song called “Uno en un Millón”.
