We recently had the chance to ask Jennifer Lopez questions about her upcoming album, "A.K.A" (out June 17th) and more. Check out what she said below:

Q) In your opinion, how does A.K.A compare to your previous albums? What was your inspiration for songs on the album? 

 A) Most of my music has been about love and this album is no different.  My definition of love has changed over the past few years and this album is a reflection of that.  I’ve also always played around with different sounds– everything from pop to hip hop to ballads – and that’s what I also did on this album.

 Q) What's your favorite track off of the album?

A) I can’t choose! I love each of them for specific reasons. “Emotions” is one of my favorite songs on the album. It’s a beautiful love [song] that has a lot of soul and R&B undertones.

Q)Talking about the First Love video out May 29th, what can fans expect? Have you filmed any other videos for the album?

A) We shot First Love in the desert in the middle of a sandstorm with the model David Gandy.  I can honestly say it was one of the most difficult shoots I’ve ever done.   It was crazy!  But worth it because I think it turned out so great and very sexy.  I hope people love it.

Q) What's next after the album? Can we expect an "AKA World Tour"?

A) I’m not sure yet.  Right now I’m focused on releasing the album and doing a lot of live performances for my fans to promote the new music.

Fan question: Which was the easiest song to record off of AKA? Hardest?

A) First Love was probably the easiest, because Max Martin and Savan Kotecha came up with a great concept and when they presented it, I immediately wanted to record the song.  They’re a great team to work with.  I don’t know if I would call it “hard” but I think I went back and forth a lot with “Booty.”  I didn’t know if I would want to record a song with that title, but Diplo made a great beat and my son (Max) loved it, so it got me excited and I knew I had to record it for this album.
