The singer and actor teased a 30-second preview of the song on Sunday (November 26), ahead of its January 10 release. The track samples the dancehall star’s 2003 hit “I’m Still In Love With You” – which itself samples Alton Ellis’ 1960s classic, “I’m Still In Love With You Girl.”
J. Lo also released a trailer for This Is Me…Now, which she’s dubbing a “musical experience.” The album is due out February 16.
Check out the preview and the trailer below:
This Is Me…Now is being released under a new deal Jennifer Lopez signed with BMG in September. The effort is due to be a sequel to 2002’s This is Me…Then, which spawned the hits “Jenny From The Block” with Styles P and Jadakiss and “All I Have” with LL COOL J.
The sequel was recorded in 2022 and 2023 in J. Lo’s home, and will feature production from Hit-Boy, Ink, Tay Keith, Yeti Beats, Carter Lang, and Kim “Kaydence” Krysiuk.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with her and her team to release her first album in nearly a decade,” BMG’s CEO Thomas Coesfeld said in a statement to Billboard at the time of the signing. “We are both excited and proud to partner with Jennifer Lopez on this long-awaited sequel to This is Me…Then.
“Clearly written with love and through experience, This Is Me…Now is uplifting and inspiring. ‘Jenny From The Block’ is back at a point in her career when her message is bigger than ever.”
While this is the first album that Jennifer Lopez has released in nearly a decade, she has been periodically releasing music through the years.
However, she’s been better known for her acting than her music in recent years, as the success of her 2019 film, Hustlers, proved.
Lopez was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for Hustlers, marking the first time she’s received a Golden Globe nomination in over 20 years. In 1998, she was nominated for Best Actress in a Motion Picture ― Musical or Comedy for her starring role in the biopic Selena.
Back in December 2019, Lopez reacted to the latest recognition for her acting work via Instagram.
“Could not be prouder to be recognized by the #HFPA,” she wrote. “Ramona was a complicated character and it was an honor and challenge to bring her to life. Hustlers was a labor of love, sweat and perseverance written, directed, produced, edited and starring a group of bad-ass women. I am proud and honored to represent them and this film!!!! @goldenglobes #HustlersMovie #Ramona.”
