Jennifer Lopez has made her return.

The 53-year-old took to Instagram on Friday with a new video announcing her upcoming album, "This Is Me... Now" — a follow-up to her third album, "This Is Me... Then." The drop comes just a few days after the singer and actress wiped her social media accounts.

In the clip, the "On The Floor" artist first posed as she did in the 2002 album cover, wearing a white sheer dress and a white beanie with her hair cut shoulder length. Sitting down, she said, "This is me then" in reference to the first album.

Then, J.Lo pulled her hat off and the video transitioned into her new album cover, where she's standing wearing a black leather jacket, white bustier and black leather pants. With one hand in her pocket, the "Let's Get Loud" singer said, "This is me now," with a smile, as the camera panned away to reveal her killer body.

The last shot of the video showed, "The musical experience" written on a black screen, along with "2023."

In the caption to her post, Lopez included the album's 13-song track list, which includes songs like "Dear Ben pt. II," "This Time Around" and "Greatest Love Story Never Told."

Fellow celebrities and fans raved about the announcement, with many showing their excitement for some upcoming instant hits and the star's natural beauty.

"I love you then and I love you now. Always," wrote Market America co-founder Loren Ridinger.

"Another classic on the way," penned DJ Sinatra, along with four rocket emojis.

"This is 'bout to be epic," added singer Stevie Mackey.

"It's like she always knew she would make a follow up one... Right??? 'This Is Me... Then' was always in retrospective," one fan shared.

"Omg I can't cope," someone commented.

"You are such an amazing singer, actress, designer and a very beautiful woman!!! Thank you...for sharing then...and sharing now!!" another fan raved.

According to a press release, Lopez's upcoming album "chronicles the emotional, spiritual and psychological journey that she has taken over the past two decades." It's the "Marry Me" star's first album since 2014's "A.K.A.," and it's the first she'll write and produce since "This Is Me... Then."

The 2002 album was heavily inspired by Lopez's relationship with Affleck, where the duo became the supercouple — known as "Bennifer" — that same year. Lopez dedicated the body of work to the "Gone Girl" actor, including a heartfelt note in the CD's jacket when it was released.

"You are my life ... my sole inspiration for every lyric, every emotion, every bit of feeling on this record," she had written.
