Marc Anthony Producing Jennifer Lopez’s New Spanish-Language Album, Single Weeks Away
When it comes to Jennifer Lopez's divorce from Marc Anthony, the ex-couple continues to — thankfully — split custody of music.
Lopez, whose most recent work A.K.A. dropped in 2014, has a new album on the way, Billboard reports. J. Lo's ninth LP has a 2017 release date, and a new single is reportedly due in November. Oh, and Lopez just so happens to have tapped her ex-husband to serve as executive producer.
"I am so excited and really looking forward to this new musical journey and to celebrate my Latin roots with Marc Anthony” Lopez said in a statement.
"[Jennifer] has had enormous accomplishments in her career and has been representing our culture all over the world from day one," Anthony answered. "I am looking forward to our creative collaboration and to be part of continuing her musical legacy."
This will be Lopez's second Spanish-language album. She released Como Ama Una Mujer in 2007 which debuted within the Billboard 200's Top 10 and included singles "Que Hiciste" and "Me Haces Falta." Anthony served as co-producer.
Though Lopez and Anthony split in 2011, and were formally divorced in 2014, they haven't shied away from working with each other. As recently as August, Lopez joined Anthony on stage for a rendition of "No Me Ames" during Anthony's The Private Collection tour stop in New York City. "Always fun sharing the stage w this one…#familia" J. Lo noted in a corresponding Instagram photo.
Are you excited for some new J. Lo, specifically something in Spanish?
