From the sounds of her new single, Jennifer Lopez is ready for the summer.
J. Lo has connected with one of hip-hop’s current cameo kings, French Montana, for the breezy new song, “I Luh Ya Papi.” The sunny and infectious tune is sure to soundtrack many beach parties once the temperatures soar. Yes, this winter will eventually end.
“I Luh Ya Papi” is the third promotional single Lopez has already dropped this year, following “Girls” (which featured production by DJ Mustard) in January and “Same Girl” (co-written by Chris Brown) in February.
While Lopez’s fans wait patiently for this deluge of singles to eventually lead up to the release of her eighth studio album, the triple-threat artist is keeping busy with her gig as a judge on the current season of American Idol.
Her TV duties are about to increase exponentially, as it was recently announced that Lopez is set to executive produce and star in an upcoming prime-time show, Shades of Blue. The show, which is described as “a complex police series,” is looking to debut in the 2015-16 season, and will feature Lopez as a single mother/detective recruited to go undercover for the FBI.
