Jennifer Lopez releases "A.K.A."
Jennifer Lopez is still busy acting, dancing, and singing. Oh yeah, there's been a whole lot of singing.
At the conclusion of her Dance Again World Tour in 2013, Lopez began the recording process for what would be her eighth studio album, "A.K.A.," inspired by her travels. It was released in June 2014 through Capitol Records, following the release of two promotional songs from the same album – "Same Girl" and "Girls" – as well as the first official single "I Luh Ya PaPi" featuring French Montana.
In between all the promotion for her new project, Lopez also took the time to record the official song for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, along with Pitbull and Claudia Leitte. The song, "We Are One (Ole Ola)" was released in April and the trip performed the song live at the FIFA World Cup opening ceremony.
Lopez is working on a number of other projects as the year rolls on. She remains a judge on "American Idol," has a range of upcoming acting roles, including the risque low-budget thriller "The Boy Next Door," and will executive produce and star in a 13-episode television drama called "Shades of Blue." The NBC series is expected to air in 2015-16 and will feature Lopez as a single mother and police detective who goes undercover for the FBI to investigate her own squad.
Lopez is reportedly planning to record a Christmas album by the end of the year, and another Spanish-language album in 2015.
The stage takes a back seat to the small screen for Jennifer Lopez (Created May 5, 2013)
Singer. Dancer. Actress. Businesswoman. Diva. All those labels sit well with Jennifer Lopez -- just don't tag her as, 'the judge from American Idol.' The entertainer announced her departure following two seasons at the Fox competition's judges' table to put her focus back on her music, acting and other endeavors.
The woman famously known as J.Lo started out in musical theater as a child, got her break on a sketch comedy series and recurred on a TV drama before landing her big break co-starring in the 1995 movie, "Money Train." The title rather adequately describes her career since that time. She landed the title role in 1997's "Selena," co-starred opposite George Clooney in 1998's "Out of Sight" and ultimately became the highest-paid Latina actress in Hollywood.
Lopez shifted to music and scored a hit with the single, "If You Had My Love," off her debut album. She followed that up with the appropriately titled "J.Lo" in 2001, and the following year released "J to tha L-O!: The Remixes" and "This is Me…Then," which spawned the now infamous "Jenny From the Block." Over all, Lopez has recorded seven studio albums, was ranked 27th Artist of the 2000-2010 decade by Billboard magazine and No. 16 on VH1's "100 Greatest Women in Music" in 2012.
Lopez's personal life has often created more headlines than her recording career. She was romanced by Ben Affleck, married (and eventually divorced) singer Marc Anthony, and has been a constant tabloid magnet. Having recently wrapped a tour with Enrique Iglesias, Lopez is also working as a TV producer for ABC Family and has partnered with the Hispanic cable channel nuvoTV on new programming, including a docu-series on a recent European leg of her tour.
Though Lopez isn't on screen for the debut of her new TV series, she will be tweeting about it. She is serving as executive producer of ABC Family's drama "The Fosters," about a lesbian couple who are parents to a brood that includes adopted twins and a foster child. Rumor has it that her manager is also negotiating a return to "American Idol."
