LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: In 2002, Jennifer Lopez came out with her third studio album ‘This Is Me… Then’ and solidified her status of being one of the finest musical talents in the world. The album went on to become a rage among people and sold millions of records. Since then, Lopez has not only just become one of the greatest musicians of all time, but she has also turned out to be one of the most influential ones. However, it’s been eight years now that the singer hasn’t come out with an album and fans are upset that their favorite musician hasn’t come out with new music. But 2023 won’t be the same because the singing sensation has announced that she will be coming forward with a new album next year.

Lopez took to Instagram and uploaded a video on her official account, announcing that she is returning to music with a new album. But it’s not just any other album we are talking about, it has a pretty good connection with an album that made her a superstar. On this day in 2002, the musician came out with ‘This Is Me… Then’, and to mark the album’s anniversary, the star has announced a follow-up to that album titled ‘This Is Me…Now’. She announced the album in a rather interesting way and deleted all her previous posts from the image-sharing platform. Everyone thought that something big is coming up and just a day after deleting all her posts, she uploaded a video in which she recreated the cover of the 2002 album and then transforming into 2022 Jennifer Lopez. The musician captioned the video as, “This is me then, this is me now.”

The cover of the upcoming album is similar to the album that was released in 2022 while wearing a white crop top, along with a leather jacket and black leather pants. Apart from the album cover, Lopez’s social media post also confirmed that the album will consist of 13 songs, including a few songs, titled ‘Dear Ben Pt. II’, ‘Midnight Trip to Vegas’, and ‘Greatest Love Story Never Told’, that primarily focus on her relationship with actor and now her husband, Ben Affleck.

According to People Magazine, the ninth studio from the musician will showcase her vulnerabilities like “never” before. “This album is a philosophy, a reflection, a zeitgeist moment. It's about hope, faith, and true love never dying,” People quoted the press release shared by the musician’s publicist.

Meanwhile, in a recent interview, the ‘Waiting for Tonight’ hitmaker revealed the upcoming album is “the most honest thing she has done” in her professional career. During the conversation, she added, “People think they know things about what happened to me along the way -- but they really have no idea, and a lot of times they get it so wrong. There’s a part of me that was hiding a side of myself from everyone.”
