She is a Latin music icon and he is one of the hottest rising stars in music.

And now Jennifer Lopez has teamed up with Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda to make a benefit song for Orlando nightclub shooting victims.

The Booty favourite and the Broadway star shared some behind the scenes footage of them recording Love Make The World Go Roundon their Twitter pages as they promoted the tune on Monday.

He says: ‘What we got is love, even when the sinners hate us. We cannot let ’em diminish or intimidate us.

‘We sing out. We got the rhythm and truth on our side. We cut through the divide and we do it with pride.’

Just before he posted the clip, he poked fun at how hard fans are finding it to get into his hit musical, saying the video is, ‘A taste of some new music you don’t need tickets to hear.’

Proceeds from the song, which has yet to have an official release date, will go to the Hispanic Federation’s Proyecto Somos Orlando fund.

In total 49 people were killed and 53 injured when Islamic terrorist Omar Mateen, who pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, opened fire at the Pulse nightclub last month in what is the deadliest single gunman mass shooting in US history.

More than 95 per cent of the victims of the shooting were were Latino.

It had been reported Marteen may have been a patron of the nightclub, but the FBI investigation found no credible evidence to substantiate the claims.

The New York Times also reported the bureau were treating claims he had used used gay dating websites and apps as a hoax.
