Nicky Jam is pulling double duty in his American crossover…
The 35-year-old Puerto Rican and Dominican American singer/songwriter, who recently signed with publicity firm 42West, won’t just make his acting debut in xXx: Return of Xander Cage. He’ll also release a brand new English track.
Nicky Jam’s co-star Vin Diesel took to social media to offer a preview of the new song titled “Without You.”
“Another No.1 hit right here,” the actor and xXx: Return of Xander Cage star says in a two-minute video on Facebook, in which he appears to be at the beach with the “Hasta el amanecer” singer and his son.
The acoustic English track is slated to debut in January.
Nicky Jam will play the role of Lazarus and is also featured in the movie’s original song “In My Foreign” by The Americanos.
After working together on set, Nicky Jam told Billboard that he and Diesel had become good friends and might even work on new music together in the future.
“Vin Diesel is crazy, and when I say crazy, I mean it in a good way,” Nicky said. “He’s crazy about Latinos and he’s not even a Latino. He even wants to speak Spanish. I told him we should do a song together and he said he was shy. But I said, ‘I’m no actor, but I’m acting in front of you. I wasn’t scared.'”
