Jennifer Lopez Tells the Story Behind "First Love"

Jennifer Lopez put tons of work into "First Love," from getting the song down on the page to recording it to the glam, '90s-inspired video that accompanies it. She recently opened up to Fuse about the process behind "First Love" and its video.

First, J. Lo waited on famed songwriter and producer Max Martin, who's known for his work with the boybands of the '90s (Backstreet Boys*NSYNC) and Britney Spears. "I had really wanted to work with Max for many, many years, and it just never happened," she says. "For [A.K.A.], I was like, 'I want to work with you.' I met with him in the summertime, and he was like, 'I'm just going off to do Adele's album!' or somebody he works with all the time. I was like, 'When are you back?' ... I was like, 'I'll wait for you.'"
