Jessica Simpson's music comeback might be sooner rather than later.

During Sunday night's 2016 American Music Awards, the 36-year-old mother of two shared a video of herself performing "I Wanna Love You Forever" at the awards show 15 years ago. "Throwing it back to 2001 #AMA," Simpson captioned the video.

She then excited fans by hinting that she might be making a return to music next year. "Bring it 2017," she wrote.

Simpson -- who has not put out an album since Happy Christmas in 2010 -- has been teasing a comeback to pop music for some time now. In September 2015, she told the Today show that her husband, Eric Johnson, and their two children, Ace, 3, and Maxwell, 4, aren't familiar with her life as a singer. "I recorded a Christmas album with [Johnson], but he has never really seen me onstage, and do my thing that actually got me here," she said.

As for whether we can expect Simpson to tour and record a new album, she declared, "Absolutely!"
