A.K.A.

Ay mami! Jennifer Lopez brings the heat with the red-hot cover art for her 10th album A.K.A., which stands for Also Known As. The multi-faceted superstar and mother of two shows off her banging body in a bondage-inspired dress with her breasts strapped in.

She revealed to Jimmy Kimmel that she was considering two titles for the album, Same Girl and A.K.A., before ultimately deciding on the latter.

“I feel like I’ve been given so many monikers, and I do a lot of different things,” said J.Lo.

The album has spawned the buzz tracks “Same Girl” and the DJ Mustard-produced “Girls,” plus the singles “I Luh Ya Papi” featuring French Montana and the Max Martin-produced “First Love.”

She has collaborated with an all-star cast including Chris Brown (“Emotions”), Robin Thicke and Wiz Khalifa (“Loveline”), Maxwell (“I Wanna Love”), Nas (“Trouble”), Rick Ross (“No Worries”), and Pitbull (“Big Booty”).

A.K.A. is set for release on June 17.

New Music: Jennifer Lopez – ‘First Love’

First Love

Jennifer Lopez put it down for her papi, and now the pop megastar debuts the follow-up single “First Love,” which hit iTunes today. J.Lo, who’s dated everyone from Puff Daddy to Ben Affleck, sings about her failed relationships on the radio-friendly Max Martin-produced number.

“I wish you were my first love ’cause if you were first baby, there would’ve been no second, third, or fourth love,” sings J.Lo, who’s currently dating dancer Casper Smart.

Her 10th album, potentially titled AKA or Same Girl, is due June 17 featuring contributions from Nas, Rick Ross, Pitbull, French Montana, Chris Brown, Maxwell, Diplo, and more.

“Usually I do an album in a few months, but this one’s taking me a year to really put together,” she told Rap-Up. “Because it’s my 10th album, I think it feels a little more special.”
