Jennifer Lopez may not be talking about her marriage with Marc Anthony, but one of the songwriters behind her next album is.
"Third Time Lucky? J. Lo Reportedly Marries Marc Anthony").
"From what I looked at on TV, from newspapers and everything, I just took that and created a song about it," Jerkins said. "It's basically saying, 'No matter what people say about relationships, about us, no matter what their view is, you got me and I got you.' That's the bottom line."
Jerkins' other collaboration with Lopez is called "Step Into My World." "It's basically just exploring J. Lo's world and what her world is all about," said Jerkins, who produced the singer/actress' breakthrough single, "If You Had My Love." "I heard it may even be the second single."
A spokesperson for Lopez's record label had no details about the album, but it's expected to be released in early 2005. It will be her fourth studio release and first since 2002's This Is Me ... Then.
"She's grown," Jerkins said. "She's gotten better vocally. She even shocked me."
The Neptunes have hinted in the past that they are also working with Lopez (see "Pharrell Hints The Neptunes Are Going To Work With J. Lo"), and Rich Harrison, best known for Beyoncé's "Crazy in Love," has done a few tracks. "She's sounding great so far," Harrison said.
Lopez just hit the big screen in "Shall We Dance?" and is due next in "An Unfinished Life" in December (see "Robert Redford Joins Cast Of J. Lo's Next Movie Project") and "Monster-in-Law" in May (see "J. Lo To Butt Heads With J. Fonda In 'Monster-In-Law' ").
