Jennifer Lopez’s long awaited musical experience This Is Me…Now will begin with the release on February 16, 2024, of a new full-length album and film inspired by the music.
The release of This Is Me…Now, Lopez’s first studio album in nearly a decade, celebrates the anniversary of its sister album, This is Me…Then, completing a 20-year journey.
The album, written and executive produced by Jennifer Lopez and Rogét Chayed, along with Angel Lopez, Jeff “Gitty” Gitelman, HitBoy, Tay Keith and INK among others, blends R&B, contemporary pop sounds and hip-hop beats.
This is Me…Now: The Film is like nothing you’ve ever seen from Jennifer Lopez, says Amazon MGM Studios, which describes it as “a narrative driven, intimate, reflective, sexy, funny, fantastical and highly entertaining musical and visual reimagining of her publicly scrutinized love life.”
They add: “Along with director Dave Meyers, Lopez creates a genre-redefining immersive cinematic experience: an extravagant visual and sonic feast with impressive choreography, star studded cameos, costumes, sets and blockbuster-worthy visuals.
“Although an astonishing vivid spectacle, the film is ultimately a heartfelt ode to JL’s journey of self-healing and everlasting belief in fairytale endings. Audiences will be captivated and leave hopeful that true love can be more than a dream.”
Amazon MGM Studios has acquired and will release Nuyorican Productions’ This Is Me…Now: The Film on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. Nuyorican/BMG will distribute This Is Me…Now: The Album.
Directed by Dave Meyers, the film was written by Jennifer Lopez, Matt Walton and Ben Affleck from a story by Lopez, Meyers and Chris Shafer. It is produced by Nathan Scherrer and executive produced by Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, Benny Medina and Courtney Baxter on behalf of Nuyorican Productions.
“Can’t Get Enough,” the first single from This Is Me…Now: The Album, will be released on Wednesday, January 10, 2024, and is available to pre-save today on all major streamers along with a 30-second sound clip on social platforms.
The single was produced and written by Lopez, Rogét Chahayed (Doja Cat, Travis Scott), HitBoy (Drake), and Jeff “Gitty” Gitelman (H.E.R, Victoria Monet). The additional songwriter-producers include Angel Lopez, Drew Love, INK, and Prince Chrishan with BMG’s Brandon Riester serving as A&R.
