We love "Hypnotico," one of the songs that Lady Gaga wrote for Jennifer Lopez's new album, Love?, (which came out on May 3rd), but we're not the only ones who think Gaga and Lopez make a great team.
In an interview with MTV News, J.Lo gushed about having the opportunity to collaborate with Gaga and with producer RedOne on her new album. "I think RedOne's sound is very specific, but he also can be very individual for each artist that he works with. He makes a record sound so big and important," said Lopez. "When he would play me different tracks and even the beginnings of ideas and when he told me, 'Actually I worked with Gaga on this,' and I was like, 'Really? That's awesome. Is it OK?' and he [was] like, 'Yeah, yeah.' You know, they write and produce together a lot. So, it was exciting. I kind of just lucked out on that one."
Lopez tells the website that her new album has been years in the making. "It's been quite a process, but I've been saying lately that I've been actually making this record since I was 13 years old — the first time I fell in love — because it's true, all the thoughts and all the things that went into this album were questions and things that I've had over the years," she says.
Lopez, who has many songs about love on her new album, says the subject of love is interesting to her. "Love is a very complex topic and I've been singing about it since my first album, and this was kind of the culmination of that."
"I wanted to pose some questions and get the dialogue going about love," she added. "I wanted to make a great dance, rhythmic album, as well ... and we did that. I had great producers ... who helped me do that, helped take me and put it into this generation of music with all of that [and] we still were able to do that."
