In addition to "Rebound," the special will see Lopez showcase new songs including "This Is Me... Now," "Hearts and Flowers" and "Greatest Love Story Never Told" as well as hits like "Jenny from the Block," "Love Don't Cost a Thing," "If You Had My Love" and more.

Throughout the "On the Floor" performer's career, she's scored chart-topping hits and box office success with films from Selena to Hustlers. But in a recent interview with Apple Music host Ebro, she spoke about her favorite way to entertain: hitting the stage.

"I think people always like, 'Oh, you like acting, you like doing movies, you like doing ... What's your favorite thing?' Honestly, my favorite thing is live performance," said Lopez.

"First of all, I love people. I love looking into their faces and really looking at their eyes and seeing what they're trying to talk to you," added the musician. "They're laughing, and they're screaming, and they're crying, and they're jumping up and down, and they're dancing, or they're just really still and listening. Whatever it is, there's such a relationship there."

J. Lo will get to further connect with fans on her upcoming This Is Me... Now the Tour, a 34-date string of North American arena concerts set for this summer in support of the new album.

This Is Me... Now the Tour will mark Lopez's first large-scale string of concerts since 2019's It's My Party Tour, which grossed over $50 million from 37 dates.

"I have hope always that things will be great. Even when they're hard. That is a part of me. And I think when this happened in my life there's a surreal magical plot twist in my life," she said. "And I got a second chance at this love it made me want to share that. It made me want to share that hope and as an artist you want to share the things you know."

Lopez continued, "I love my music and I love to make movies and do all the things you see in the project, but I also see life that way. I want to make life beautiful for myself and for my kids and my husband. And for everybody. In my own little way."
