Jennifer Lopez hints that she might be retiring from music with her latest album, This Is Me… Now, possibly being her last.

“The truth is I don’t even know if I’ll ever make another album after this. It’s such the kind of quintessential kind of Jennifer Lopez J.Lo project and I really feel very fulfilled, so they really will be collector’s items at a certain point,” Lopez told ET as she explained the different album covers they did for fans.

After Lopez dropped the bomb that she was unsure of making another album, she added, “Don’t tell Benny [Medina] that that’s what I’m thinking — this might be my last album ever.”

This Is Me… Now is Lopez’s ninth studio album, a sequel to her third studio album, This Is Me… Then, which was released in 2002.

“I feel like it’s the end of a kind of an era for me and the beginning of a new one, so I would never say never, but right now I feel like I really put my heart and soul into this and I’m very excited and it definitely took a lot out of me,” she added.

Accompanying the album’s release, Lopez will star in a movie inspired by her music, which is set to be released by Prime Video. This Is Me… Now: A Love Story is described as “a narrative-driven, intimate, reflective, sexy, funny, fantastical musical and visual reimagining of [Lopez’s] publicly scrutinized love life.”
