Jennifer Lopez has announced she is releasing a new album after cryptically wiping her social media accounts.

The singer and actress got the rumour mill whirling this week when she changed her Instagram photo to a black box, and removed every post from her account.

Fans had speculated – or at least hoped – the cryptic move meant she was getting ready to announce a new project, and now all has been revealed.

The Jenny From The Block icon is indeed releasing a new album, titled This Is Me… Now, a clear nod to her 2002 album This Is Me… Then.

J-Lo revealed the news on Friday with a post on her previously blank account, featuring the album cover of her This Is Me… Then album.

However when viewers clicked into the post, the album cover Jen suddenly moves and morphs into current-day Jen, as the star sings: ‘This is me now.’

The very short snippet of music we hear is likely from one of the new album tracks, as the icon even revealed the track listing for the upcoming record – track one being ‘This Is Me … Now.’

Back in 2002, Jennifer penned her original album while she was with then-fiance Ben Affleck, and the record included a track talking to him called Dear Ben.

While the pair split weeks before their wedding, they recently reunited – and this year, closes to 20 years after the original date, they were married.

And the new album reflects this, with one of the tracks titled Dear Ben Pt II.

Following a popular trend on the app, J-Lo sat on Ben’s knee and smiled ear to ear as sweet audio played underneath the loved-up video of the pair.
