AceShowbiz - Jennifer Lopez's new album is described as a "musical experience." The "Jenny From the Block" star is scheduled to release "This Is Me ... Now" next year and she's revealed some more details about the record in a teaser video posted on her website which features a montage of clips including footage of Jennifer dancing in the rain and riding a motorcycle.
"This musical experience is a manifestation through music, film, and reality, of life's journey on the search for truth about love," she captioned the clip.
"This Is Me … Now" is a follow-up to her 2003 album "This Is Me … Then" which was inspired by and dedicated to her partner Ben Affleck. The pair ended their engagement a year after the record's release, but they got back together almost two decades later and married in 2022.
The second album is also dedicated to Affleck and explores their rekindled romance after they got back together. Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1 last year, she explained, "We captured me at this moment in time when I was reunited with the love of my life and we decided we were going to be together forever."
"The whole message of the album then is, 'This love exists. This is a real love.' Now I think what the message of the album is very much if you were wondering if you have, like me at times, lost hope, almost given up, don't, because true love does exist and some things do last forever and that's real."
The singer admitted it was tough showing her vulnerable side in her new songs, but she is glad she was open and honest. Jennifer went on, "I want to put that message [of true love] out into the world and that does take a lot of vulnerability. But I couldn't stop myself and some parts of it scare me. And I think parts of it scare Ben too. He's like, 'Oh, do you really want to say all this stuff?' And I'm like, 'I don't know how else to do it, baby.' "
Jennifer also revealed her husband is a big fan of the first record, adding, "He loves that album. He loves that music. He knows all of the words. You know what I mean? It's crazy. He also was with me while I was creating it."
