Don’t be fooled by the new boy toy that she’s got, she’s still Jenny From the Block—and still working with her former husband. Today, the one and only Jennifer Lopez announced that she is working on a new Spanish album. The set will be released next year, with the first single expected in November. The album will be executive produced by fellow Latin music phenomenon and ex-husband Marc Anthony.

“I am so excited and really looking forward to this new musical journey and to celebrate my Latin roots with Marc Anthony and the Sony/Magnus family,” Lopez said in a statement. “[Jennifer’s] artistry, professionalism and passion for music are just some of the many attributes that have earned her a unique place in the entertainment world that very few people have been able to obtain,” Anthony added. “I am looking forward to our creative collaboration and to be part of continuing her musical legacy.” How’s that for staying friends after divorce?

The new album comes amidst several different projects that J.Lo constantly juggles as today’s Wonder Woman, including her lauded Las Vegas residency show, All I Have, and the second season of hit NBC crime drama Shades of Blue. The album will be her second Spanish-language record after 2007’s Como Ama Una Mujer, which set the record for the largest sales week for a debut Spanish album at the time. It looks like Lopez is looking to top her record, a full decade later.
