The worlds of country and pop found middle ground this week thanks to two famous Jennifers. Jennifer Nettles released her newest song, “My House,” which just so happens to feature Jennifer Lopez.

The song focuses on how Nettles and Lopez are “really not that different” even though they may live on different sides of town and have different experiences. “My house is your house/ Same dirty laundry, same dirty dishes/ My house is your house/ Air it all out and sort out the issues,” the women sing together on the chorus.

The song’s melody has a strong country backbone, but Lopez’s voice lends it a smoother pop polish. However, it’s the subject matter and the sentiment behind it that’s so poignant. Women still face backlash from other women about the choices they make, whether that has to do with career, children or another arena. Nettles and Lopez hit upon that tension, but ultimately decide they can each live their life the way they want to and appreciate the other for doing the same.

Nettles first teased their collaboration back in April, when she posted a selfie with Lopez on Instagram. “Thank you sweet mama for a beautiful afternoon,” she wrote.

“My House” appears on Nettles’ upcoming second studio album Playing With Fire, which drops May 13. Listen below:
