When Chris Brown and Jennifer Lopez first got collaboration rumors swirling last month when they were photographed in the studio together, no one really knew what it would sound like when those two musical worlds collided. But, now J.Lo is dishing about what she’s created with the “Fine China” singer. And, by her account, they are kicking it old school.
“Yes, when we were in the studio, writing songs and just getting that whole ‘Jenny from the Block’ flavor back,” she told “Extra” about sonically time-traveling back to 2002 for this release. “We actually worked on a bunch of ideas… and we talked about doing a duet together for his album.”
She added, “Every time I get a new song I’m like, ‘Oh, that could be a new title for the album.’”
Earlier this month, Brown spoke to MTV News about getting the opportunity to work with the dancefloor diva, noting songwriting is a big part of his 10-year plan. “I think being able to write for great artists — J.Lo, collaborating, working on her album — and doing stuff that I never thought possible,” he said, adding, “Everything that I do creatively, whether it be skating, anything that I try to put my hands onto, hopefully [I'm] excelling in it and, you know, making people see the light at the end of the tunnel.”
When he sat down with Ryan Seacrest just weeks before, Brown teased that in addition to working on her follow-up to 2011′s Love?, he’s trying to lock her down for his 2013 release, X.
“We actually are collaborating,” he said. “I’m trying to get her on my album, I have a couple songs that would be incredible for her to feature on. But as for now, I’m just in the studio writing for her album and collaborating on new stuff and trying to give her some party music and fun stuff.”
