Both singers have ‘American Idol’ ties
Both Allen and Lopez have ties to american idol, particularly season 10. During this season, Lopez appeared on the judging panel with Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler. This is also the season that Allen auditioned for.
Allen made it through Hollywood Week, but he didn’t make the Top 24. Scotty McCreery won season 10, and Lopez returned as a judge for one more season before taking a break in season 12. She returned for seasons 13, 14, and 15 with Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban.
Allen has yet to share snippets of the new song. It will be interesting to hear how they combine Allen’s country sound with Lopez’s pop style.
