Jennifer Lopez Readies New Album / Ex Husband Is Exec Producer

Published: Thursday 6th Oct 2016 by Sam

Forget Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, because Jennifer Lopez is taking “consciously uncoupling” to new levels of civility.

For, the sassy siren has enlisted her ex-husband to executive produce her new album.

Full story below…

Billboard reports that J.Lo’s next offering will be a Spanish LP, which will be moulded by ex husband Marc Anthony.

A single is said to be due in November, while the project itself will hit retail in 2017.

The as yet untitled record will be Lopez’s first all-Spanish effort since 2007’s ‘Como Ama Una Mujer.’ That album debuted at #10 on the Billboard 200 and, at the time, was only the 5th Spanish-language release to premiere in the top 10 of the all-genre chart. Anthony also produced that LP.

Interestingly, despite the diva signing with Epic Records earlier this year, cousin-label Sony Music Latin will take charge of the new project.

The 47-year-old performer has, throughout the course of her career, always spotlighted her Latin heritage. Case in point cuts such as ‘On The Floor’ and ‘Ain’t It Funny.’ There’s also the collaborations with Wisin y Yandel, Ricky Martin, and Prince Royce. 

Speaking on the new venture, the singer said in a statement:

“I am so excited and really looking forward to this new musical journey and to celebrate my Latin roots with Marc Anthony and the Sony/Magnus family.”

Anthony added:

“[Jennifer] has had enormous accomplishments in her career and has been representing our culture all over the world from day one. Her artistry, professionalism and passion for music are just some of the many attributes that have earned her a unique place in the entertainment world that very few people have been able to obtain. I am looking forward to our creative collaboration and to be part of continuing her musical legacy.”

Afo Verde, Chairman & CEO, Latin America, Spain and Portugal, Sony Music Entertainment concluded…

“Jennifer is one of the most iconic Latina superstars of all time and a longtime member of the Sony family. We’re very excited to partner with her and Marc on a project that is all about spotlighting her spirit and soul.”


We’re all for it, although we’re scratching our heads at why she pulled the trigger with ‘Ain’t Your Mama’ this summer if there wasn’t to be any follow-through.

The track, while not a hit in the US, was a major success in many South American and European territories – despite no push.

In hindsight, perhaps said success served as the catalyst for her to veer outside her usual market to more squarely target those actually buying her music? Who knows.

We just hope an English language follow-up to 2014’s ‘A.K.A’ is on the cards for next year too.

    “The track, while not a hit in the US, was a major success in many South American and European territories – despite no push.” receipts, honey… I’m in South America and have heard this song on the radio a total of ZERO times.
    I’m not here for Spanish J-Lo. I wish she’d pull a Shaki and do a Spanglish album…

        even if Shakira never gets another hit in her life… she’s still more relevant to the arts than Hyuna will EVER be.
        you K-Pop stans trying to drag is like a poodle going for a pitbull, just give up

        Shakira has been way more successful than JLo in South America and Spain and France than JLo. Like way way more throughout the years with way more real hits one after the other. She has lost some steam these last 3-4 years even in those territories. But her tremendous run of at least 15 years slaying non stop is something JLo has never had. Not to mention Shakira´s peak was way bugger than JLos. Shakira had the best selling album in the world in 2002 I believe. JLo was like the 10 or 11th best selling album once at her best moment 🙂

      In Europe, like in France the song was all the time playing on radio.
      Not a fan of the song but in Europe they like Ain’t Your Mama

      • Julian Riedel October 7, 2016

        Yes, in Germany you could hear the song all summer long, too! Just a few weeks ago they played it at a party and everybody knew the words.

    She can keep it.

  4. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? October 6, 2016

    Oh gosh! This one might inevitably flop too. But what can she really do at this point in her career, though? “Ain’t Your Mama” deserved to smash the charts, to be completely honest.

  5. Bech October 6, 2016

    You know she won’t that old d^ck back

  6. SMH October 6, 2016

    She needs to concentrate on acting, clearly nobody is interested in her music.

    Her Spanish album has the best vocals of her career, it’s a beautiful album, full of love songs, if she released an album like that in English it would certainly be celebrated and acclaimed by the industry, such an underrated gem.

    • ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? October 6, 2016

      It has an incredibly poignant album cover too. Her makeup, hair, and pose were breathtaking. Don’t you agree?

      • Suicide Blonde October 6, 2016

        Definitely, I also love that she dyed her hair dark during the era, so beautiful.

    Bish is determined to get a hit album in some language.

  10. daniel October 6, 2016

    i wished she could pull out an english album as a follow up of Aint your mama which obviously was hit in europe . but im ready i liked CAUM

  11. BuyGLORYONitunes October 6, 2016

    Cannot wait!! Jen and Marc work great together and Im happy she’s going back to her roots!

  12. JOHNVIDAL October 6, 2016

    Wasn´t ain´t your mama the first single for her new English album? She has like zero artistry or love for her “art”. It´s obvious but it needed to be said. About her vocals in Spanish I have a video to show you:
