I know, we’re in the midst of a GOOPocalypse right now. I’ve ordered a kale salad this evening just to pay my respects. But there’s an important story that was buried today — one for true lovers of papis, the Bronx…and Christmas.
That’s right: LOVE? legend Jennifer “J.Lo” Lopez is recording a Christmas album. Not only that, but she’s recording the album with David Foster. A prolific, 16 GRAMMY Award-winning songwriter and composer? Yes, but more importantly, the husband of Dutch Real Housewives of Beverly Hills diva and recent Lady Gaga video vixen, Yolanda Foster.
A year ago, you were thinking about doing a Christmas album. Is that still in the works?
Yes. It’s with David Foster. It’s all about finding the right time to do things. David Foster and I sat down and talked about this over six, seven, eight months ago and we sat down and we just started singing. And then he came back to me and was like, “Hey, look what I did.” He’s such an amazing producer. It’s crazy. Then he played me from just little vocals that I was doing there with him with the piano, almost fully-produced Christmas songs. I was like, “Oh, my God.” He’s like, “We have to finish this album,” and I was like, “We have to do this album.” And so we’ve been talking about it. Actually I just saw him yesterday, so I’m hoping to do it. I don’t know if it’ll be for this year or next year, but I would love to.
Will you be covering classics and doing some original songs as well?
Yeah, I would like to do a couple of originals, but of course it will be classics.
Imagine, if you will, Jennifer Lopez and David Foster sitting side by side at the grand piano crooning “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” in the middle of summer. Yolanda appears, carrying a fresh batch of lemon margaritas. “For you my love,” she says, handing one drink to David. “And for you, amada mia,” she whispers sensually into Jenny’s ear, squeezing her shoulder. Somewhere, Gigi Hadid spins around daintily on the set of a Vogue cover shoot to the tune of “Louboutins.”
MuuMuse insiders have confirmed several of the original titles from the upcoming Christmas record to me already, including: “I Luh Ya Papa Noel,” “Sleigh Girl,” “Santa From The Pole,” “(Can’t Believe) This Is Christmas” and “Waiting For Tonight.” (That one works as is.)
Prepare to add a little La Lopez spice to your holiday season.
“I Luh Ya Papi” was released on March 11. (iTunes)
