Jennifer dropped her latest album A.K.A. Friday, June 13th after over a year of preparation. Lopez, who began working on her album after her world tour ended last year, decided to push back the release date for her album — the original plan was for it to drop in November. Jen wanted to be sure the new album was on her level of perfection, and that her die hard fans were nothing but pleased!

The album, which was originally supposed to include a mix of Lopez’s famous styles (urban-pop, dance-pop, and Latin), was later changed under the production of Lopez’s longtime friends and collaborators Benny Medina and Cory Rooney. Rooney and Medina thought Lopez and her album should have more of an urban sound, which is ultimately what they went with.

The 10-track album includes the styles of T.I., Iggy Azalea, Pitbull, and French Montana – all adding to the urban feel of the album.

The first single off A.K.A., ‘I Luh Ya Papi’  featuring French Montana was released March 5th and has received positive feedback from critics and fans alike. No doubt a result of all the positive feedback,  two more versions of the song have been released, and feature fresh rappers Big Sean and Tyga. The video for the single was released March 13th and was even called a summer anthem! From hitting the ‘nae nae’ to sexy car washes, this video engulfs summer and definitely creates an impromptu dance sesh!

The second single off of the album was released on May 1 and was titled ‘First Love’. Also receiving positive feedback from fans and critics, this song was commonly thought of as a ‘crush’ song. The video debuted May 29th in a black and white style featuring a delicious model by J. Lo’s side throughout the video.

While Jenny from the Block’s new album itself may not have received the feedback she wanted from the critics, her fans were delighted to get Lopez’s eighth studio album after so long. You can check out the full album on iTunes.
