Jennifer Lopez kicked off Spotify’s original podcast ¡Viva Latino! and got candid about her role in "Selena," and her relationship with ex-husband Marc Anthony, who executively produced her forthcoming Spanish album Por Primera Vez.
"It [collaborating on the album] actually kind of repaired certain parts of our relationship that had been fractured from our marriage and our divorce and it kind of made us friends again," she reveals. "Like, because when we first started working together it's how we met, we met working. And so we remembered that like, oh right, we connect on this level of music. And we have that. and that's what the album came out of."
JLo is the gift that keeps on giving and she’s already dropped several singles from her new album. We can’t get enough.
"I've learned so much and I've done so much and I haven't done an album in a couple of years and I feel like I'm so different now than I was a few years back. There was like a growth spurt emotionally and kind of spiritually for me. And I said, 'You know it's different now for me,'" she says. "Everything is like the first time. Things are going to be different for me. Even when it comes to love, especially when it comes to love because, for the first time, I'm going to put myself first."
When asked which has been her favorite movie performance, she said Selena was one of her top choices.

It's like those things you're born with, she just, she had the light inside her. She was a star. It was sad to not see where she would be now at my age," the 48-year-old star says. "She would be around my age now, so it's sad. Tragic.
