According to PopOnAndOn.com, "First Love" leaked ahead of release on Tuesday. The latest single from Lopez's upcoming album with Capitol Records follows her very playful track "I Luh Ya Papi." While she played it cool with "Papi," Lopez really digs deep on "First Love," both vocally and emotionally.
"First Love" marks Lopez's first single to include production credits from pop hit-maker Max Martin, the guy behind big hits for artists like Britney Spears, Katy Perry, P!nk and countless others. Martin melds glowing electro-pop with subtle hip-hop beats on new track. "I wish you were my first love 'cause if you were my first, baby, there wouldn't have been no second, third or fourth love," she sings. The chorus seems to resonate well with the many high-profile relationships J. Lo has been in throughout the years. She also covers the love song with beautiful vocal flourishes not usually heard on her club bangers. "First Love" really shows off Lopez's unappreciated skills as a singer in a way that still appeals to the commercial masses.
There is no word yet on when "First Love" will be released. It should drop really soon, though, since Lopez has been teasing the single in hashtags on Twitter. Her previous single "I Luh Ya Papi" peaked at no. 77 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart. Both tracks will be featured on Lopez's first album with Capitol Records, which is due out later this year.
Lopez currently stars as a judge on the latest season of FOX's "American Idol" alongside Harry Connick, Jr. and Keith Urban. She also collaborated with rapper Pitbull this month on "We Are One (Ole Ola)," a song for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
