Having heated up the net with the video for new single ‘I Luh Ya Papi’ last week, Jennifer Lopez steamrolled on with promotion for its parent album.
Phoning in to Hot 104.7 radio yesterday, the star dished on the track’s provocative visual, her current stint on American Idol, and the release date of her tenth studio LP.
In the interview, which can be heard in its entirety below, the 43-year-old stunner, revealed to host Ryan Deelon that her as yet untitled album will officially arrive on June 17th:
Interesting strategy. It looks, once again, that Team J.Lo will first attempt to score a hit single using the Idol platform and then try to piggybank off that with an album. Makes sense…in theory. But, she’s tried that twice (see: ‘Love?’ and ‘Dance Again’ greatest hits) and always stumbled at the album hurdle.
When her Idol return was announced, we expressed our hope that her team would try an alternate approach. One that would see her use the show’s stage to sell her LP instead of just one song.
In any case, the months ahead will tell if third time’s a charm.
