The Complete Guide to Jennifer Lopez's New Album 'A.K.A.'

The Latest: With less than a week before release day, J.Lo's been dropping teasers of songs left and right. Scroll down below to hear clips of new songs like "Emotions," "Worry No More" and the title track.

The Buildup

After riding high off her 2011 comeback album Love? and subsequent Dance Again... The Hits compilation, Jennifer Lopez is gearing up for another record dedicated to her "first love": Music.

Inspiration came from her Dance Again World Tour. In mid-2013, J.Lo told her co-worker Ryan Seacrest she "was really inspired from performing and singing all the time” after her first world tour. "I just got off tour and I went right back in the studio. I was like, ‘I just want to make more music.'"

The first fruit of that was a high-energy, euphoric banger released last May with Pitbull called "Live It Up." Although it may not make the album, that track kicked off album talks with her label. Jenny originally said she had "until November" to put the LP together, but the release date was eventually pushed to 2014.
