Jennifer Lopez is more than content with her life at the moment, the singer even went as far as to call this period of her life “a golden era” during a recent interview with HOLA! USA. 

In the magazine’s October/November issue, fans get a sneak peek at Lopez’s home in the Hamptons and learn a little more about her upcoming Spanish-language album “Por Primera Vez” (“For The First Time”). 

During the interview, Lopez explained the meaning behind the album’s title.

“It’s about how we are always kind of reinventing ourselves, experiencing things for the first time, no matter how old you are,” she told HOLA! USA. “There’s always a new beginning.”  

The singer, producer, dance competition judge and actress also said it was “no secret to anybody” that she isn’t as comfortable singing in Spanish as she is in English. Still, Lopez says she prefers singing in Spanish.

“I really love singing in Spanish,” she told the magazine. “There’s just something about it that is more romantic and passionate to me, and that’s such a core part of who I am. I feel like I sing better in Spanish. We’re all interpreting songs as we go through life, right?”

Lopez also delved into her relationship with former MLB star Alex Rodriguez. Reports that the stars were dating first surfaced in March. Since then the two have gushed about each other to the press and shared photos on social media. 

In October, Lopez first announced she was working with former husband Marc Anthony on a Spanish-language album. She debuted her single “Mírate” during the 2017 Billboard Latin Music Awards in April and “Ni Tú Ni Yo” ft. Gente de Zona during Macy’s 4th Of July Fireworks Spectacular.
