However, writing music about their marriage required pushing back from friends and family – but Jennifer wasn’t deterred by any negativity from writing music about their union! “Let’s Get Loud” hitmaker said she felt some resistance amongst these individuals when making music about marriage for this album.

“Artists should follow their heart, so I followed mine here by doing something I knew might not please everyone but felt I must,” she told an outlet.

One month after Jennifer Lopez ended her two-year engagement to former Yankees player Alex Rodriguez, Ben Affleck and Lopez were seen riding together in an SUV in April 2021. Rumors started swirling that they may be dating before vacationing together in Big Sky Montana during May – later that month Us Weekly reported from an anonymous source: ‘Jen and Ben seem very content together and are enjoying seeing where this goes,” noted an insider subsequently quoted by Us Weekly later that month. A source further verified this report for Us : they had began full dating by May – in May! – before heading off together to Big Sky Montana during June vacation! An insider confirmed this year with Us Weekly later reporting: ‘They appear full dating and very content together!'”

Nearly one year later, with her intention being different this time around, Lopez revealed she has tried her hardest to keep this new chapter of their relationship as private and secure as possible.
