In conjunction with her long-awaited album “Love?” dropping tomorrow, Jennifer Lopez debuted the music video for “I’m Into You” on The Today Show. It’s the follow up to her humongous hit, “On The Floor“. Just like it, she’s enlisted a rapper to add some hip-hop edge to the track. Even though Lil Wayne provides sick rhymes for the single, he doesn’t appear in the music video. Instead, she enlists hunky telenovela star and former Man Crush of mine, William Levy to provide added heat to the hot video. Here’s J. Lo explaining why she chose the Cuban sex stick to co-star with her.

“It was funny because over Christmas, I had my whole family at my house, and every day my cousins and my aunts and everybody tuned in to this thing [telenovela] to see this guy … I called my cousins and they were like, ‘It’s William Levy. You’ve got to get William Levy!'”

I have to admit, I like the song more after watching the music video. When I first heard the track, I wasn’t a super fan and thought she was copying Rihanna‘s footsteps by releasing an island-sounding track as her second single. But consider me a convert now. La Lopez traveled to the Mayan pyramids of Chichen Itza to film the scenic clip. Melina Matsoukas directed the pop singer who looks absolutely stunning in every shot. It’s like Madonna’s “Cherish” music video fused with Beyonce’s “Deja Vu” set in a Mayan setting. Watch the clip and you’ll totally agree with my references.

Jennifer Lopez’s new album, “Love?“, finally drops on Tuesday, May 3, after much delay. It was originally slated for a release date in 2010, but due to the enormous flop, “Louboutins“, it was shelved and Lopez was dropped by Sony Records. Thankfully, she regrouped and signed with Island/Def Jam. We’ve already heard a few tracks including “Papi“, “I’m Into You“, “Good Hit“, and the huge hit, “On The Floor“. Now, we have the first listen of another track, “Hypnotico“, from her seventh studio album.

Lopez, once again, teams up with RedOne to produce another potential club banger hit. “Hypnotico” is also one of two tracks co-written by Lady Gaga included on the album. The other being “Invading My Mind“. Here’s what Jennifer told Rolling Stone Magazine about Gaga’s involvement on her new disc.

“We didn’t work together face to face. RedOne brought her into the process, because they’d worked together a lot—it was kind of cool,” she said. “She’s a great songwriter. I don’t just love her lyrics, but also her melodies.”

The synth-heavy track was originally written for Jamaican popstar and Akon protegee, Tami Chynn. Unfortunately for Chynn, her debut track “Frozen” flopped big time for her back in 2008. Her label dropped her and subsequent tracks were never released, including “Hypnotico”. Akon and RedOne tried to turn Tami into the Jamaican Lady Gaga. If you recall, Akon was instrumental in signing Lady Gaga. Looks like lightning didn’t strike twice for Akon’s protegee.

Listen to both Jennifer Lopez’s and Tami Chynn’s versions below and compare. Decide if it was a wise move for Lopez to include sloppy seconds for her comeback CD? Will La Lopez spellbind her fans with her “Hypnotico” jam?

Jennifer Lopez Serves Up “Papi”

In: Donovan, Music

In preparation of Jennifer Love’s release of “Love?“, the singer has released another track from her upcoming album. “Papi” is the third single from Lopez’s seventh studio album. Once again, J.Lo enlisted RedOne to produce this dance track. SHOCKER. Not really, considering their last collaboration, “On The Floor“, is a huge hit and already amassed an astonishing 100 million views on YouTube. That’s right… 100 effing million views. Jenny is definitely back on the block.

If you loved Jennifer’s previous leaks, then you’ll like “Papi“. The Latin-flavored dance track serves it up with pounding synths and beating drums. It’s another club banger track that will “Move your body, move your body/ Dance for your papi/ Rock your body, rock your body/ Dance for your papi.”. The track was originally supposed to debut on Tuesday, but due to high demand, Lopez released it a few days early for her fans. Check it out below.

Is Jennifer Lopez The Most Beautiful?

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Donovan

According to People Magazine, she just might be. The American Idol judge is rumored to be gracing the cover of the magazine’s annual “Most Beautiful” issue. After literally falling on her butt on “Louboutins” and “The Backup Plan”, Jennifer Lopez has certainly managed to stage a comeback. Signing on to Idol has definitely resuscitated her career. Not only is she riding high on the charts with “On The Floor“, but the accompanying music video has garnered more views that Britney and Gaga’s latest vids.

This isn’t the first time Lopez has made People Magazine’s beautiful cut. She appeared in 1997, 1999, 2007 and 2010, but this is the first time she’ll appear on the cover for the special issue. Not too shabby for the 41-year-old stunner. Definitely a wise move sitting in between both Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson. Having those two on either side of her on the Idol panel only punctuates her beauty. LOL.

Jennifer Lopez’s new album, “Love?” hits stores on April 29, 2011. Check out a preview of her tracklisting here.

J.Lo Reveals “LOVE?” Track List

In: Music, Tyrell

The name of her album may be ending in a question, but that doesn’t mean those of us who are adoring Jennifer Lopez are confused about her comeback to music. After what feels like an extended hiatus to get married and have babies, Jennifer tried to comeback with Loubitans but the single failed miserably with critics and the charts. It didn’t matter how many talk shows and events she performed it at, no one really seemed to like it. I’m just going to chalk it up as, it wasn’t her time yet.

Now, with her smash single On The Floor burning up the dance charts, and her new single with Lil Wayne on its way up, the anticipation for the full length album is at its highest and now, all of us can be treated to a sneak peak at the track list for the upcoming disc.

Twelve songs make the cut with the deluxe edition adding another four including a Spanish version of On The Floor. How sexy. What’s noticeable is that the two tracks that J Lo has featured artists on are the ones being released as singles. Is that because her solo tracks aren’t as good? Donovan gave us a preview of Good Hit a while back which is pretty good so lets hope the rest stack up.

Check out the full track list here.

Jennifer Lopez’s Give It LOVE, Get It Early campaign is in full swing before her single I’m Into You drops on Tuesday. The song which features Lil Wayne and has a more urban and R&B edge compared to her previous single, On The Floor. I said in my previous article about the song that it reminded me of her Rebirth album.

The video shoot for the track is now in full swing. Wearing a whole lot of snake skin, Jennifer looks amazing during her solo shots in Chichen Itza, Mexico where she sings on the Mayan Temple steps. No word on if Lil Wayne was there as well but from the first pictures that have surfaced, it looks like its going to be a great video.

J.Lo Debuts “I’m Into You” Preview

In: Music, Tyrell

After On The Floor was released, multiple clips from her new album began to surface and it looked like Jenny From the Block was vying for the Queen of the Dance Floor title. However, with her newest track collaboration with Lil Wayne, it looks like J. Lo is returning to her more urban roots.

Today, she revealed a 30 second clip of I’m Into You on Ryan Seacrest. What is interesting about the release of this track is that it solely lies in the hands of her fans. Confused? If you head to Jennifer Lopez’s Official Facebook Page, you are able to “unlock” the song on iTunes before its official release on April 5th. Those who unlock the song are also entered into a contest to win a trip to the American Idol Finale in L.A.

The entire campaign is titled “Give It LOVE, Get It Early” and honestly, I think its quite genius. The preview doesn’t give you much of a taste. However, I proceeded to ‘LIKE’ the track on Facebook and get to listen to the full track. It is quite catchy and reminds me of her Rebirth album.

Check out the “I’m Into You” preview here.

As part of iTunes’ Countdown program, Jennifer Lopez is revealing several tracks from her upcoming album, “Love?” to build buzz for her upcoming CD. This iTunes promotional strategy has been used successfully by Carrie Underwood, Ke$ha and Taylor Swift when they promoted their most recent offerings. Below is the release schedule of Jen’s singles, in anticipation of the album’s May 3rd release.

March 22: “Ven a Bailar (On the Floor)” ft. Pitbull single release
April 5: “I’m Into You” ft. Lil Wayne single release?
April 19: “Papi” single release?
April 26: “Love?” single release?
May 3: “Love?” album release

For two of the tracks, “I’m So Into You” and “Papi“, the new American Idol judge is showing off two smoking hot single covers. At 41, Jennifer Lopez is looking as hot as ever. Few would’ve predicted after the commercial failures of her previous comeback singles, “Louboutins” included, that she would be riding high on the charts again. Certainly not me.
