Exes Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony are making an album together

Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony

Divorce isn’t always the end of a relationship. Yes, there are kids that keep exes in mandatory contact with each other and in the music business, there’s the prospect of once again making beautiful music together, quite literally. Singers Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony not only made two adorable kids, Max and Emme, during their 7-year marriage, they also recorded the romantic duet “No Me Ames” in 2007, featured on Jennifer’s all-Spanish album Como Ama Una Mujer. Well, it seems the pair are heading into the studio together once again.

Last month, soon after kicking former beau Casper Smart to the curb, the 47-year-old singer alluded to the fact that she and her 48-year-old ex may be reuniting professionally, telling Extra, “We’re talking about doing some stuff together.” Well, the “stuff” is an all new Spanish language album, Jen’s first since 2007’s Mujer. Marc is serving as executive producer for the new project under his entertainment company, Magnus Media. The album is scheduled for release via only Music Latin in 2017. Jennifer told Billboard that the first single will most likely hit the air in November and told the magazine, “I am so excited and really looking forward to this new musical journey and to celebrate my Latin roots with Marc Anthony and the Sony/Magnus family.” Marc also released a statement expressing his excitement about working with his ex again:

[Jennifer] has had enormous accomplishments in her career and has been representing our culture all over the world from day one. Her artistry, professionalism and passion for music are just some of the many attributes that have earned her a unique place in the entertainment world that very few people have been able to obtain. I am looking forward to our creative collaboration and to be part of continuing her musical legacy.

Not only is Marc serving as executive producer for the album, he will also “provide consulting services to Lopez in the areas of marketing, content development, and touring specifically for the Hispanic market,” according to E! News.

But, one burning question remains. Is Marc going to actually sing with Jennifer on the album? Jen has recorded some great duets with Pitbull, Ricky Martin and Prince Royce – who recently admitted that Jen served as his fitness inspiration. She most recently recorded the lovely “Love Make the World Go Round” with Broadway’s sweetheart, Lin-Manuel Miranda. And, of course, “No Te Ames” is a beautiful love song.

J-Lo may have hinted that the two may record together again, telling Access Hollywood just last month. “When we sing together, when they see us together, knowing our history, it brings a certain nostalgia. They know we care about each other and still love each other. We have two kids together and they love to see that things are good between us.” It remains to be seen if they’ll take us all down memory lane again, but it could be magic – just professionally of course. I mean, I get along great with my ex-husband…now…and I think we could work together just fine. I don’t see a second chance for romance for myself or for Jennifer and Marc. I do like Jen though and I hope she finds love. And, speaking from experience, she should probably look for someone close to her own age.

    imo, the less a couple has money issues, the more likely it is they will remain friendly or become friendly in the process. it’s when they go bankrupt because of the divorce, or when they keep arguing over money that it gets sour.

    • Luca76 says:

      But the rumor was that they had a lot of money issues. He was in a lot of debt and they were forced to work together for a while as they weee separating to get him out of that situation. My feeling is they stayed friendly because they were friends for many years before getting into a relationship.

      • Bridget says:

        Supposedly he had major money issues. It’s no shock that after he and Jennifer split he’s gravitated to women with money.

  2. OTHER RENEE says:

    I’ll bet his wife is thrilled he’s working with Jennifer “I can’t be without a man for five minutes” Lopez.

    • Naya says:

      I forgot he was married. But yeah, Jlo is incapable of singlehood. The “professional” reunion that she conviniently starts to mention a few weeks after Casper is gone is just pretext for her to be around Marc more. Watch this space.

  3. ElleBee says:

    I can’t believe she is still pretending that she is a good singer

  4. Incognito says:

    I actually really like her Spanish songs. “Que Hisicte” is a good one too and probably my favorite off that album with “No Te Ames” being a close second. I like Jennifer and I want good things for her. She’s a hard working woman and she hustles.

    I always think it speaks volumes when exes can get along. I get along just fine with my ex and my current husband with his. Frankly, I would be more worried if there was still hatred, anger, disgust etc. because that to me shows there is still passion. And where there is still passion, there is still fire.

    So yeah, I’ve forgiven my ex for being a cheating, beating, generally effed up jerk and now there are certain things we can laugh about.

    I also think that peace and forgiveness comes much easier to come when you are satisfied in your own life.

    • susiecue says:

      I totally agree with all of the above!

    • Renee says:

      Only if you have kids. It makes no sense whatsoever being friendly with an ex if you had no kids together. That does not mean that you still hate each other or carrying a torch. Once a relationship is over, it should stay over. There’s no reason to drag your past into your present. I truly don’t understand this need to stay friends with an ex. You are an ex for reason. If the relationship was worth having, we should’ve never broken up. In their case, it makes sense because they have kids and work well together professionally, outside of that, what’s the point? I have absolutely nothing to do with my exes because I’m indifferent to them. They mean nothing to me, no love, no like, no hate, no passion, just “meh.” Personally, that’s the way it should be.

      • Ange says:

        Some people work better as friends than partners, it happens a lot. I personally don’t have any of my exes as friends but I’ve seen it in action. The only time it’s an issue is when an insecure new person comes in and decides to upset the apple cart for no good reason. I don’t understand why they decide to date someone in that situation then really, let the mature adults continue on with their day and go date elsewhere.

    I will always have a soft-spot for her because I was obsessed with the movie Enough as a teen, and I still like it. Her song “Alive” in the end credits is great, she isn’t always a superb vocalist but I would say she nailed that song.

  7. maria says:

    No me ames was released way earlier that 2007 btw

  8. Nev says:

    They did a talent search in Latin America reality show that was so amazing! I read they are doing another season!!!! Yayyyyy

  9. Bridget says:

    No big shock there. She’s been deemed too old to get mainstream pop music play here in the US, and he’s a mega star in the Latin market. Plus he’s always been more into her than vice versa

  10. MiniMii says:

    Whatever the reason, I think it’s lovely to see ex’s who can be not only civil, but also supportive of one another. That statement that MA made was very classy, and says a lot about him.

  11. Eleonor says:

    I think mujer was one of her best album, so I’m fine with this.
