Jennifer Lopez hints at Music Retirement: In an exclusive tête-à-tête with ET, the illustrious American singer and actress, Jennifer Lopez, hinted at the possible closure of her musical odyssey spanning a remarkable four decades.
As the songstress eagerly anticipates the launch of her upcoming album, ‘This Is Me,’ which marks her ninth studio endeavor and the inaugural release in ten years, she dropped a bombshell during the interview. Lopez expressed uncertainty about the prospect of crafting another musical masterpiece beyond ‘This Is Me.’
Intriguingly, she disclosed the meticulous efforts invested in creating distinctive album covers for ‘This Is Me,’ set to grace the public soundscape on Feb. 16. She emphasized their commitment to crafting collector’s items that resonate with fans, insinuating that these might stand as memorabilia marking a potential culmination of her album-producing journey.
Lopez shared her sentiments, stating, “It’s such the kind of quintessential kind of Jennifer Lopez J.Lo project, and I really feel very fulfilled, so they really will be collector’s items at a certain point.”
However, it was the revelation that followed that truly captivated enthusiasts. After the bombshell about the uncertainty of her musical future, Lopez whimsically added, “Don’t tell Benny [Medina] that that’s what I’m thinking — this might be my last album ever.”
‘This Is Me… Now’ is poised to be Lopez’s ninth studio album, echoing the essence of her third studio creation, ‘This Is Me… Then,’ unveiled in 2002.
As the artist hinted at a potential finale, she reflected, “I feel like it’s the end of a kind of an era for me and the beginning of a new one, so I would never say never, but right now I feel like I really put my heart and soul into this, and I’m very excited, and it definitely took a lot out of me.”
In tandem with the album’s debut, Jennifer Lopez will grace the screen in a Prime Video release, ‘This Is Me… Now: A Love Story.’ Described as a “narrative-driven, intimate, reflective, sexy, funny, fantastical musical and visual reimagining” of her publicly scrutinized love life, the film adds an enigmatic touch to the culmination of a potentially extraordinary chapter in Lopez’s musical saga.
