Jennifer Lopez announces ‘This is Me Now’ album, companion film release date

The projects will be released in early 2024

Multi-talented global superstar Jennifer Lopez has announced the release date of her long-anticipated “musical experience,” This Is Me… Now, as well as surprising fans with the announcement of an accompanying film of the same name to be released on February 16, 2024.

This Is Me… Now is Lopez’s first full-length studio album in nearly a decade, and her first release since signing a new recording and publishing partnership with BMG earlier in 2023. It comes more than 20 years after its sister album, This Is Me… Then exploded on the charts, led by the worldwide smash “Jenny From The Block.”

The album, written and executive produced by Lopez and Rogét Chayed, along with Angel Lopez, Jeff “Gitty” Gitelman, HitBoy, Tay Keith and INK among others, effortlessly blends R&B, contemporary pop sounds and hip-hop beats, combined with Lopez’s signature vocals. It is already slated to be Lopez’s most honest and personal album to date.

Directed by award-winning music, film and commercial director Dave Meyers, the filmed visual adaptation of the music, This Is Me… Now: The Film, is a narrative-driven intimate, reflective, sexy, funny, fantastical and highly entertaining musical and visual reimagining of Lopez’s publicly scrutinized love life. The pair, who previously worked together on a number of Jennifer Lopez’s music videos, create a genre-redefining immersive experience together: an extravagant visual and sonic feast with impressive choreography, star-studded cameos, costumes, sets and blockbuster-worthy visuals. A heartfelt ode to Lopez’s journey of self-healing and her everlasting belief in fairytale endings, the film promises to captivate audiences and leave them feeling hopeful.

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 the highly anticipated This Is Me…Now: The Album.

“Can’t Get Enough,” the first single from This Is Me…Now: The Album, will be released on January 10th via Nuyorican/BMG.

To date, Lopez has sold over 80 million records worldwide, with 15 billion global streams, and more than 18 billion views of her music videos from her previous albums.

In this age of streaming Jennifer Lopez, in 2023, cemented her status as a global film star on streaming platforms. Her latest film, The Mother is Netflix’s most successful movie of 2023 so far, with over 239 million hours watched globally. Her film has also become a top seven movie of all time on Netflix. Shotgun Wedding released in January was the No. 1 movie on Amazon Prime Video.

Lopez is the only female artist to ever have a No. 1 album and No. 1 film simultaneously and she has a cumulative worldwide box-office gross of over $3 billion. In 2019, her movie Hustlers which she produced and starred in was Lopez’s highest opening weekend of her career, topping $32 million and grossing over $100 million worldwide.
