Jennifer Lopez announces 'This Is Me…Now' album release date, accompanying movie

Jennifer Lopez is giving her fans a post-Valentine's Day treat in the form of a new album and an accompanying movie.

Over 20 years since the release of her hit album, "This is Me…Then," Lopez announced her upcoming album "This is Me…Now" will drop on Feb. 16.

"This is Me…Now: The Film" will also debut the same day as the album on Amazon Prime Video.

As a sneak peak of what to expect, the 54-year-old singer and actress is releasing the album's first single, "Can't Get Enough," on Jan. 10.

Lopez shared a trailer for the musical film on social media Monday, featuring the singer in an array of scenarios from throwing love letters into a fire to dancing in a wedding dress.

"When I was a little girl… when someone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, my answer was always, 'in love," the singer says in the trailer.

The film is "a narrative driven, intimate, reflective, sexy, funny, fantastical and highly entertaining musical and visual reimagining of her publicly scrutinized love life," according to a Monday press release, and fans can expect "impressive choreography, star studded cameos, costumes, sets and blockbuster-worthy visuals."

"Although an astonishing vivid spectacle, the film is ultimately a heartfelt ode to JLo's journey of self-healing and everlasting belief in fairytale endings. Audiences will be captivated and leave hopeful that true love can be more than a dream," the release ends.

Lopez's husband Ben Affleck is credited as a writer on the film. "This is Me…Then" was released in 2002 at the height of the couple's first try at romance.

Jennifer Lopez is releasing a new album and movie titled "This Is Me…Now" in February 2024.

Lopez and Affleck married in 2022 after rekindling their romance in 2021.

The two broke off their first engagement in 2004 and moved on to other love interests – with Lopez marrying Marc Anthony from 2004 to 2014 and getting engaged to Alex Rodriguez in March 2019, before calling it quits in April 2021. Meanwhile, Affleck was married to actress Jennifer Garner from 2005 to 2018.

Jennifer Lopez says Ben Affleck makes her feels 'more beautiful' than her past relationships

Earlier this month, the "I'm Real" singer gushed in an interview with Vogue that Affleck, 51, helps remind her of her worth.

"Ben wants me to understand my worth and know my value," she told the outlet. "I feel even more relaxed and comfortable, which makes me feel even more beautiful than I have ever felt with someone else."

Now, the "The Mother" actress is more confident than ever.

"I'm finally at the point in my life where I love every part of myself unapologetically," she continued. "Every part of me, my body, my voice, my choices, even, like, my mistakes. All of it made me who I am and got me to where I am today."
