The music icon isn’t the best at locking down collaborations via direct messages.
The music icon was chatting with E! News for Down in the DMs and shared that he reached out to Lopez in the hopes of getting together on his next big single. This wasn’t something that was far-fetched considering that the pair were both judges on World of Dance.

“I did DM J.Lo at one point about a song that I was trying to write for her,” he told the outlet. “I DMed her in the moment because she wasn’t right in my face and I didn’t have her phone number at the time, so I was like, ‘Alright, we’ll see if she’ll respond here.’ She didn’t, which is fine, that’s fine. She’s really busy.”
“It’s not like we’re friends or anything,” he quipped. “It’s not like we did a whole TV show together or anything. It’s fine. It’s totally fine.”
“It was just about us getting in the studio and doing some work, which we still need to do,” he said. “If you look at the date on when she reached out versus when I responded, there was some time in between the two… Sorry, Chlöe. Nothing personal at all. I just really, really suck at this DM thing.”
