Jennifer Lopez’ new album will be called “A.K.A.”, and it comes with some seriously steamy artwork. JLo shared her eighth studio album’s title and its revealing artwork overnight to her 27.4 million Twitter followers.
The “A.K.A.” cover art should get pulses racing with its image of JLo in a red vinyl skirt and barely-there top. Her tweet also carries the simple message — “coming soon.” The album is expected to be released in June 17.

JLo recently previewed six songs at an intimate brunch in Malibu. “If you listen to my albums, they were always about love. I’ve always sung about love. It was always love in a certain way: A fairytale type of way; I was hoping, praying, and wishing for that,” JLo told guests.
One of those songs is the second single, “First Love,” which the pop star discusses in a podcast with Billboard. She began recording “A.K.A.” in February 2013, after finishing her first world tour and divorcing singer-songwriter, Marc Anthony. The likes of Max Martin and Diplo lend their production skills to the set, while Robin Thicke, Big Sean and Wiz Khalifa are among the big-name collabs.
