Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony Are Teaming Up on a New Album
Jennifer Lopez is releasing a brand new album—with a familiar name behind it. The music superstar is working on a new Spanish-language album, and she’s collaborating with ex-husband Marc Anthony to produce it, Billboard reports.
Anthony’s entertainment company, Magnus Media, will co-produce the album with Sony Music Latin, and he will act as executive producer and provide consulting services to Lopez for the Hispanic market in marketing, content development, and touring.
The album is slated for release in 2017, with the first single due out in November. It will be Lopez’s first all-Spanish record in a decade since releasing Como Ama Una Mujer, which was co-produced by Anthony back in 2007.

“I am so excited and really looking forward to this new musical journey and to celebrate my Latin roots with Marc Anthony and the Sony/Magnus family,” Lopez said in a statement.
Her ex echoed the sentiment: “[Jennifer] has had enormous accomplishments in her career and has been representing our culture all over the world from day one,” he said. “Her artistry, professionalism, and passion for music are just some of the many attributes that have earned her a unique place in the entertainment world that very few people have been able to obtain. I am looking forward to our creative collaboration and to be part of continuing her musical legacy.”
The couple wed in 2004 and separated in 2011, but their divorce wasn’t finalized until June 2014. They continue to co-parent 8-year-old twins Maximilian and Emme, and even recently performed together in N.Y.C. to perform a Spanish duet, proving that there’s no bad blood between these exes.
Don’t think that these recent collaborations, though, mean these two are rekindling their romance: Anthony has been happily married to Shannon De Lima since 2014.
