Jennifer Lopez cleared her Instagram to become 2002 J.Lo once more. And then transformed again back into her modern day self. On the 20th anniversary of her This Is Me … Then album, Lopez announced her first album in eight years. This Is Me … Now will take a look at her journey over the past two decades of her life, including her reconnection with Dunkin’ Donuts stan Ben Affleck. Track seven, “Dear Ben pt. II” is a nod to her 2002 track “Dear Ben” about her relationship with Affleck. Another obvious track-name hint about their relationship is “Midnight Trip to Vegas,” referencing Lopez and Affleck’s Vegas wedding in August. “This album is a philosophy, a reflection, a Zeitgeist moment. It’s about hope, faith, and true love never dying,” shared Lopez in a press release to Deadline. This isn’t the only big release she has planned for the new year. This Is Me … Now is the first of several personal projects Lopez has in the works. While there is no specific release date, the album is slated to be released sometime in 2023.
