After it was reported earlier this week that Jennifer Lopez’s upcoming album Love? had been canceled and that her relationship with Epic Records had been terminated — awkward timing considering she is hosting Saturday Night Live this weekend — Lopez said today that her Love? lives on.
“I am making this statement to put an end to any confusion in regards to my next album, titled Love. I have belonged to the Sony family since the beginning of my career as a singer and together we’ve had great success. I have fulfilled my contractual responsibilities with Sony/Epic up to this point, and we have both reached friendly terms about my departure from the label. I’m also happy to say that we’ve found a new home for my album Love and that it is slated for release in the summer of 2010.”
It would appear that the title of her upcoming movie, The Back-Up Plan, was oddly prescient.
