Jennifer Lopez is working on a new, all-Spanish album, and she’s doing it jointly with her ex husband Marc Anthony, who will act as executive producer, Billboard has learned.
This will be Lopez’s first all-Spanish album in a decade.
Como Ama Una Mujer was co-produced by Anthony, who comes in as an executive producer on Lopez’s new record via an alliance with Magnus Media, his entertainment company, and Sony Music Latin, which will release the album.
Magnus may also provide Lopez consulting services for the Hispanic market.
“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,” said Lopez.
Lopez recorded “Love Make the World Go Round” with Lin-Manuel Miranda.
“[Jennifer] has had enormous accomplishments in her career and has been representing our culture all over the world from day one,” Marc Anthony said in a statement. “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.”
Expectations are high encircling Lopez’s new Spanish album. At the time of its launch in 2007, Como Ama Una Mujer set the record for the biggest sales week for an Spanish-language album. That record would later be broken by Romeo Santos, but Lopez keeps the record among female musicians’.
“Jennifer is one of the most iconic Latina superstars of all time and a longtime member of the Sony family,” added Afo Verde, Chairman & CEO, Sony Music Entertainment. “We’re very excited to partner with her and Marc on a project that is all about spotlighting her spirit and soul.”
Apart from her recording career, Lopez is currently working on the new season of her successful NBC show Shades of Blue. Browse Jennifer Lopez tickets here!
