With a tenth studio album under her belt, Jennifer Lopez proves she can bring the heat now more than ever. Equal parts musician and determined businesswoman, J.Lo has much to celebrate with the release of her tenth LP, “AKA.” Sugar, spice and everything diva, the artist not only secured a flux of collaborators to join in on the album, she also just recently acquired Fuse Music Network, outbidding P.Diddy to dominate the channel. We luh ya, mami.

 

Earlier this year,  SiTV Media, the singer’s company that owns NUVOtv, an English-language cable entertainment network aimed at Hispanics, bought Fuse for $226 million. As of April 2014, Lopez gained power as shareholder and chief creative officer at NUVOtv, expanding her reach over both companies. Fuse has access to over 73 million homes.

 

Unable to slow down, the multidisciplinary star promotes an entirely new collection of tracks on “AKA.”

 

 

Lopez playfully tackles the objectification of women in music videos by reversing the gender roles in the single  “I Luh Ya Papi.” Prescribing the music industry a healthy dose of its own poison, Lopez demonstrates just how much fun women could have banding together as an empowered team, instead of passively accepting the gender norm.

 

 

Star-studded collaborations embed the majority of the tracks, with Iggy Azalea lending her history-making sass on the track “Acting Like That.” Friend to the songstress, Pitbull resurfaces in the big-drum club hit “Booty,” while Nas, T.I. and Rick Ross all supplement the artists’ re-entry into the charts.

 

 

French Montana receives the most love from Lopez, setting his collaboration record up two tracks over the others. Chris Brown even co-wrote two of the tracks, with “Emotions” and “Same Girl” fusing hip-hop and dramatically slowed down R&B into the mix.

 

“AKA” is now available in stores, on iTunes, and at jenniferlopez.com.
