Jennifer Lopez dishes collaboration details about her new 'Love?' album
Jennifer Lopez's seventh album "Love?" hit stores on May 3, and just a few days after the actress/signer and "American Idol" judge debuted a full-length version of her "I'm Into You" music video on Monday, she chatted up about her collaboration process on the record.
"We talked a lot about that when I started to make this record, like what was the sound going to be. But the truth is I just really wanted it to be me," she told OnTheRedCarpet.com at her album release party on May 3 in Los Angeles.
Lopez is known for pop and dance tracks such as "Waiting for Tonight," "If You Had My Love" and "Jenny From the Block." She last released a full-length record, "Brave," in 2007.
"I think people know me for a certain sound and I just wanted it to be me but today, not me ten years ago," She added. "I have to thank the producers who worked on the album for that."
The singer's second single, "Invading My Mind" surfaced online in March and was produced by RedOne and Lady Gaga, who also helped write the track.
In February, Lopez dropped her first single and music video from her record - "On the Floor," which contains vocals from rapper Pitbull and samples from Kaoma's 1989 track "Lambada."
"RedOne really brought that dance vibe of today to me," Lopez said. "Like I had 'Waiting for Tonight' back then, now today we have 'On the Floor.' It's still me but it's me today."
"It was great, I had great people to work with," she added. "You know some things happen kind of organically. Some people you pick. It just depends."
The singer was recently voted People magazine's Most Beautiful person of 2011. Lopez marks the first Latina to be honored with the cover of People's 'Most Beautiful' issue, check out those beautiful folks who've graced the cover before her in our slideshow.
