Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez leave The Sea Grill on April 24, 2017 in New York City. 

Jennifer Lopez debuted her new Spanish-language single “Mirate” at the Billboard Latin Music Awards on Thursday night, and backstage, she spoke with Entertainment Tonight about her new music -- and what new boyfriend Alex Rodriguez thinks of it.

She said the retired baseball star has been supportive of her new tracks so far. “Every time I finish something, I bring it home and I want him to hear it,” Lopez told ET.

When asked about their couple nickname, J-Rod, Lopez laughed and said it’s nothing new. "It's fine. We kind of thought that might happen because people who knew us were already doing it,” Lopez said. “So, you guys, it's not like you were original or anything!"
