Although he will not be joining the “Jenny From The Block” musician for the Super Bowl, Ja Rule has other things in the works. The father of three is wrapping up his latest project, 12.Twelve.XII, which is slated to be a visual album. “I will be rereleasing ALL of my albums as visual albums. I will be making a video for every song I’ve ever made. What songs do y’all want to see videos for,” he wrote to Twitter in September 2019.

Even though Jennifer and Shakira will hit the stage without the rapper, they vowed that it will be a performance worth remembering. The two singers are planning to honor Kobe Bryant during their upcoming gig. On Sunday, January 26, news broke that Kobe was one of nine victims that died in a helicopter crash in Calabasas, California.

“I think it’s important in this day and age for two Latin women to be standing on that stage — when Latinos are being treated a certain way in this country, or looked at a certain way — to show that we have a really specific and beautiful culture and worth and value, and we bring something to this country that’s necessary,” the “Ain’t Your Mama” singer said.
