J-Lo’s fans will get a chance to preview the first single from her upcoming all Spanish-language album during the Billboard Latin Music Awards.
The star’s team won’t reveal the name of the song until Lopez performs it at the awards show airing on Telemundo this Thursday, teasing “a taste” of what’s to come when her new album is released this summer.
During the event, Lopez will also be honored with the Telemundo Star Award, which recognizes the achievements of a musical artist beyond their musical career.
The first Spanish-language single comes four months after the record company’s initial target release date. First announced to debut in November 2016, the company pushed it to 2017 to capitalize on the success of J-Lo and Marc Anthony’s rendition of Pimpinela’s “Olvídame y pega la vuelta” during the Latin Grammys. The remake was released as a Latin Grammy exclusive single and hit No. 1 on the U.S. iTunes Latin Charts.
Lopez’s yet-untitled new album to be released thru Sony/Magus Media/Nuyorican marks her first all-Spanish album since 2007. Details about the album, including any potential duets are being kept under wraps.
The multi-tasking artist is keeping ver busy this year. In addition to her “All I Have” residency in Las Vegas at the AXIS Theater and starring on her NBC series Shades of Blue, starting in May, Lopez will executive produce and judge NBC’s new dance competition show, World of Dance alongside Neyo and Derek Hough. She will also star in NBC’s live musical “Bye Bye Birdie” in December.
