Jennifer Lopez has once again looked to her real-life love to play her love interest in a music video.
The ab-tastic star will appear alongside her dancer boyfriend, Casper Smart, in her video for “Dance Again.” In stills posted on her official website, she appears in a body-hugging, midriff-bearing outfit as Smart ties a blindfold around her that reads “Love Is Blind.”
In another still, the roles are reversed, and Smart dons the blindfold as she caresses her tatted lover from behind. In the past, Lopez appeared alongside real-life loves Diddy, Ben Affleck, Chris Judd and Marc Anthony in music videos. This is the first time Smart will appear in a video with his superstar girlfriend, whom he reportedly began dating late last year.
The video will debut Thursday during “American Idol.” “Dance Again” reunites Lopez with her “On The Floor” pals rapper Pitbull and producer RedOne.
“I love being able to collaborate with the producer RedOne again, and working with Pitbull again,” Lopez recently told her “American Idol” pal Ryan Seacrest. “We had a great chemistry the last time, and it was like, ‘We’re going to have to do something again.’ And this was the perfect song. I love the message of the song. That when something bad happens, your life is not over. You have to get up. You’re gonna live. You’re gonna to be okay. You’re gonna dance again.”
Lopez is expected to drop an album in the near future, but she wouldn’t confirm whether or not it will be a greatest hits album.
“I’m working on a collection of songs right now, and I don’t know what I’m going to do with them, but here’s the first single!” she said, adding, “”I think when it came to me it was the perfect moment. I definitely related to that. I think it’s a good thing to put it out there right now, because everybody goes through tough moments. Everybody goes through hard times, and I am no stranger to that myself.”
Late last year, producer Kuk Harrell teased the project, which may also feature production from The-Dream and Tricky Stewart.
