Jennifer Lopez Details How Ben Affleck Inspired Her Return to Music

February 12, 2024

Jennifer Lopez is tapping into her own love story for her latest album and the unique musical cinematic experienceThis Is Me… Now: A Love Story.

The celebrated songstress recently sat down with ET’s Denny Directo, and got candid about being more “vulnerable” and open than ever with her new music.

“Half the time, I was thinking, like, ‘This is amazing! I am so excited that I’m doing this!’ And then half time time I was like, ‘Why are you doing this? You are so crazy,” Lopez shares. “But I think that’s what being an artist is about, you know, you have to. That’s the difference between being an artist and not being an artist, how vulnerable you can get.” 

For Lopez, finding love once again with husband Ben Affleck was one major source of inspiration for this romantic new album, and drove her to want to capture this moment in time through music.

“When Ben and I got back together, it was just like, ‘I want to make music again, I want to get back in the studio,'” she says. “I was very, very inspired.”
