Doing It Well: Jennifer Lopez Returns to Pop Radio Charts with “On The Floor,” Prepares Release of Upcoming Studio Album, ‘LOVE?’
Jenny is officially back on the block!
Last night, Jennifer Lopez released “On The Floor (feat. Pitbull),” the lead single from her upcoming studio album, LOVE?, to iTunes. Since then, the song has climbed to the #1 spot in France, Sweden and Finland, as well as hitting Top 10 in several countries around the world.
Coupled with her digital sales success, Billboard has just confirmed that the song will debut at #40 on the Pop Songs chart, marking her first appearance on the chart since 2007’s “Do It Well” (which peaked at #29). Huzzah!
The “On The Floor” video will premiere on March 3 on VEVO, but we’ve already gotten a special behind-the-scenes sneak peek courtesy of Access Hollywood. Hang tight until the :45 mark to see J-Lo busting some serious moves–she’s still got it!
“On The Floor” arrives nearly one month prior to the release of LOVE?, Lopez’s long delayed seventh studio album due for release on March 29. The record is being produced by Lady Gaga hit-maker RedOne and the legendary chairman and CEO of Island Def Jam, LA Reid.
RedOne recently spoke to Entertainment Weekly last week regarding J-Lo’s upcoming record:
The sound, as you might guess, nods to Lopezâ€™s roots â€” but itâ€™s more than that. â€œA little bit of the Latin flavor is infused in it,â€ RedOne explains, â€œbut I would describe it more as a global sound. It is all about love and covers all emotional sides of Jennifer. She is in a good place.
To top it all off, today happens to be the birthday of her baby twins! Awwww.
Congratulations all around, J-Lo!
