Jimmie Allen’s highly-anticipated cross-genre collaboration with Jennifer Lopez has finally arrived, and the award-winning country artist might have manifested the duet… Allen remembered meeting Lopez for the first time in 2010, when he was a contestant on American Idol. As soon as he heard her early 2000s song “I’m Real,” Allen recalled in a tweet: “I told myself one day we would do a song together and It happened. I’m honored to be a part of the reimagined version of ‘On My Way.’”

The remixed version that Allen and Lopez released on Friday puts a new spin on a heartfelt song that Lopez sings in Marry Me, which released earlier this year: “And every heartbreak was a yellow brick road/ Pointing me straight, just taking me home/ I was never lost/ I was just passing through/ I was on my way to you”

Allen shocked his social media followers when he revealed that his mystery duet partner would be Lopez, the 2022 iHeartRadio Music Awards icon award recipient. The reimagined version of “On My Way” appears on the track list of his upcoming album Tulip Drive, which is set to release on June 24. See the full track list below. Listen to “On My Way” here:
