Jennifer Lopez‘s This Is Me… Now era is finally here. Now!
More than a year after announcing that she’d release a sequel LP to her beloved album This Is Me… Then, JLo officially released the first single of This is Me… Now, “Can’t Get Enough” Wednesday.
The Dave Meyers-directed film opens with Lopez saying her vows at a rainy wedding as some guests joke about her predisposition to finding love quickly and getting married again and again before the singer breaks out into song. The video sees the musician dancing to the upbeat lyrics as she rides away to her reception in a new wedding dress.
She dances with Derek Hough in the middle of the dancefloor, later showing two other grooms on the same dancefloor, playing into the fact that the singer has had several marriages in her life. “Third time’s the charm?” asks one guest. During the bouquet-throwing, someone comments, “Don’t catch it! It’s cursed.”
At the end of the visual, it fast-forwards to a pensive Lopez in what seems to be couples therapy where her different spouses say the things they hate about her: “She doesn’t listen! She thinks I’m her employee. All she cares about is work.”
In case you need a recap, Lopez is currently married to Ben Affleck after tying the knot three different times. She was first married to Ojani Noa from 1997 until 1998, then to Cris Judd from 2001 to 2003, and lastly to Marc Anthony from 2004 to 2014. She tied the knot to Affleck in 2022.
“Can’t Get Enough” is a catchy bop and interpolates lyrics from Alton Ellis’ “I’m Still in Love With You,” which was revisited in 2002 by Sean Paul and Sasha’s song of the same name.
Lopez’s “Can’t Get Enough” was co-written and produced at her home studio alongside Rogét Chahayed, HitBoy, and Jeff “Hitty” Gitelman.” Also credited on the song are Prince Chrishan, Drew Love, Angel Lopez, and INK.
Last summer, the singer shared a photo of herself with the album’s title and the caption “album delivery day.” And in November, she revealed the “first of many album cover reveals.”
The LP is the singer’s first release under her Nuyorican partnership with BMG. The album is set to drop on Feb. 16, alongside a film of the same name. Aside from the soundtrack album for her movie Marry Me with Maluma, this is Lopez’s first album since 2014’s A.K.A., which featured songs like “I Luh Ya Papi” with French Montana and “Booty” with Pitbull.
According to a press release teasing the project last year, This Is Me… Now is set to feature new music from Lopez that “chronicles the emotional, spiritual and psychological journey that she has taken over the past two decades.”
“Featuring confessional songs, reflections on the trials of her past, upbeat celebrations of love with her signature powerhouse vocals, This Is Me…Now shines a spotlight on her tough childhood, unsuccessful relationships and the incredible emotional journey she has been on,” read the release.
The project was first teased in a Vogue cover story where the project was described to be a “kind of bookend to” her This Is Me… Then record and a “musical odyssey” like Pink Floyd’s The Wall.
“I’m not one of these tortured artists,” Lopez told the magazine. “Yes, I’ve lived with tremendous sadness, like anybody else, many, many times in my life, and pain. But when I make my best music or my best art is when I’m happy and full and feel lots of love.”
