Jennifer Lopez’s new album is not due until next year, but the first single is set to kick off next weekend. The A-lister spoke with DJ Skee about her return to music.
J.Lo will debut her fashionable single “Louboutins” on the 2009 American Music Awards on Sunday, November 22. “You’re gonna see me premiere and perform it for the first time,” she told the KIIS FM DJ during his “New Music Show” on Sunday (Nov. 15).
The Tricky Stewart and Dream-helmed song is the lead single from her sixth studio album love?, scheduled for early 2010. She explained the concept. “It’s basically about when you get to that point in a bad relationship and you’re like, ‘Damn, I really have to leave. It’s just not good for me,'” she said. “This song is actually about when you’ve made the decision—I’m out. It’s not the girl who’s like, ‘I’m gonna take my stuff, and I’m gonna put on my sweatpants, and I’m gonna cry, and my girlfriends are gonna pick me up and we’re gonna go eat ice cream.’ It’s not that girl. This girl is like putting on her hottest dress and her sexiest Louboutin shoes, and leaving your ass.”
The mother of two can relate. “I’ve had to do it. Sometimes you just gotta do it! You gotta put on your Louboutins and be like, ‘This is what you’re missing. Bye bye,'” she laughed.
