The 44-year-old unveiled the artwork earlier in the week, featuring a pic of her sizzling in a red, skin tight, '90s-inspired Versace bondage dress with her hair pulled back into a tight ponytail. The album, J.Lo says, is a "collection of songs" that make her "feel good" and "feel happy," with one main theme: love.
"Some people, they dibble in all kinda things, but my thing has always been about love," the American Idol judge told with the press during a listening session last month.
"Music has always been my first love," she further explained in a statement. "As a girl who grew up in the Bronx, I listened to everything. In my career, I have always made music that is a reflection of me and where I am in my life. I do what I feel and do things that feel authentic to me. I am a lot of different things and I do a lot of different things. I love hip-hop, pop, dance music and R&B."
Lopez has commissioned a bevy of music talents for her tenth album, her first in three years. She's been in the studio with Hustle Gang leader T.I., Iggy Azalea, Pitbull, French Montana, Diplo, L.A.-based producer/musician Lamar "Mars" Edwards, DJ Mustard, Ryan Tedder, Da Internz and more.
Although an official tracklist hasn't been released yet, there are two singles from A.K.A. thus far. The first is "I Luh Ya Papi," featuring French Montana, followed by "First Love," the track for which she released a lyric video preview recently.
Next Sunday (May 18), Lopez will receive the Icon honor at the Billboard Music Awards. A.K.A. drops June 17.
