Jennifer Lopez has some exciting news for her fans, as reported by Today.

This Is Me…Now

The talented performer made the “This Is Me…Now” album release announcement on November 25. The announcement coincides with the 20th anniversary of “This Is Me…Then,” her third studio album.

J.Lo uploaded a video of herself re-creating the “This Is Me…Then” album cover to tease the future musical endeavour. She takes off her beanie while the camera focuses on her face, changing the picture to reveal her in different clothing with her hair blowing in the breeze.

She smiles and says, “This is who I am now.”

New Era

According to a press release, Lopez’s upcoming album, “This Is Me…Now,” will mark the start of a “new era” for her and feature “confessional songs, reflections on the struggles of her past, and joyous celebrations of love while expressing some of her most personal truths.”

The LP will shed light on Lopez’s background, failing relationships, and the emotional journey she underwent to get to where she is now. It will be more intimate than ever.

The press statement teases more intimate projects from the artist that will be released in 2023, calling it “an emotionally raw and honest production, unlike any she has made before, where she writes and sings about her life and experiences that will resonate with us all.”

This is Lopez’s first album in eight years since 2014’s “A.K.A.” despite the fact that she released a number of singles and the “Marry Me” soundtrack earlier this year.

20th Anniversary

The countdown to “This Is Me… Then’s” 20th anniversary has been going on for Lopez. She posted a vintage video of herself discussing the album on November 4th.

“It’s surreal to think that 20 years later, after having spoken about showing my children this record, here we are. Many things have changed. I’ve changed, but certain things haven’t changed”, The Instagram video she captioned has since been removed. “Life is a poetically lovely but occasionally crooked road… #20yearsofTHISISMETHEN.”

When Lopez’s affair with Ben Affleck was at its height, the 2002 album “This Is Me…Then” was released. The “Bennifer” pair, who were engaged in 2003 and earned the moniker, divorced in 2004 due to “excessive media attention.”

Wedding ceremony

The actor was well-known for appearing in the “Jenny From the Block” music video and the album featured the song “Dear Ben.”

After Lopez and Alex Rodriguez called off their engagement in 2021, Affleck and Lopez would go on to resume their relationship. Known as Bennifer 2.0, they became engaged in April 2022 and had their wedding ceremony in October after getting married in Las Vegas in July.

The “Hustlers” actress most recently uploaded a video of her and her spouse kissing.

She states in the video, “I discovered the one that makes me the happiest I’ve ever been.”
