Now that the oven is warmed up, Jennifer Lopez is ready to make her official return to music. The mother of two is trying on a pair of “Louboutins” as the lead single from her first album since 2007. But before the pricey heels with the red bottom landed in J.Lo’s closet, they were on another singer’s feet.
The song, named after designer Christian Louboutin’s fancy footwear, was helmed by Tricky Stewart and The-Dream. It is the first single from Lopez’s sixth studio album love?, due next year. Before making its way to her, it was given to Brandy, who was once signed to the same label as Jenny from the Block.
Brandy revealed on Twitter that she recorded the track before exiting Epic Records after releasing one album, 2008’s Human. “It is true I had a song called ‘Louboutins’ that I loved and still love to pieces, but God never blesses you with another person’s blessing,” she tweeted.
Earlier this month Lopez debuted her buzz single “Fresh Out the Oven” featuring Pitbull. She is scheduled to perform “Louboutins” at the American Music Awards on November 22.
