Jennifer Lopez: New Music and Companion Film with Ben Affleck
Jennifer Lopez has announced a release date for her highly anticipated new album, This Is Me… Now, along with its lead single and a companion film, which she co-wrote with her husband, Ben Affleck. The 54-year-old entertainer dropped the trailer for her project on Monday (November 27) on her site, On The JLo. In the brief clip, the singer sits in front of a fire in a luxurious home while the rain pours outside. While wearing a pink gown and her hair soaking wet, Lopez looks down at a letter covered in tears or rain. Most of the letter is indecipherable because of being wet, but the last line clearly says: “All of my love.” She tosses the letter into the fire as she says, “When I was a little girl when someone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, my answer was always… in love.”
Another handwritten letter that burns slowly in the fire is dated December 24, 2002, and appears to be from Affleck in the early days of the couple’s relationship. “Life’s tough but you’re sweet,” the note reads. “Thanks for the gift. Hope you like the flowers. You told me you could never have enough. I believe you.” It’s signed with a simple “B.” Then, during this storm, a hummingbird somehow makes its way to the window. In Native American culture, hummingbirds are messengers of joy and stand for intelligence, beauty, devotion, and love.
This Is Me… Now Album and Film Release Dates
This Is Me… Now, the album and the film will be released on February 16, 2024, streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Lopez has also announced that its lead single, “Can’t Get Enough,” will drop on January 10, 2024, and is available to pre-save now on all major streaming platforms. According to a press release, the upcoming film offers “the truth” behind the headlines surrounding Lopez’s personal life as told through the star’s personal creative vision. It is directed by Dave Meyers and was co-written by Lopez, Affleck, and Matt Walton.
