Jennifer Lopez had an extra reason to celebrate over Thanksgiving weekend. The ever-hustlin’ 51-year-old superstar marked the release of her new single “In the Morning” on Friday, November 27 with an at-home dance party. She enlisted her love Alex Rodriguez, their blended family and a ring light, of course, and took to social media to virtually dance with her fans! “Our #InTheMorning virtual dance party was 🔥” she wrote on her Instagram story above a video from their dance bash.
JLo was the epitome of cream casual chic in the clip. The mom-of-two paired a cropped turtleneck sweater with matching tie-string joggers. She classed things up with glittering Chanel earrings and merlot nail polish. It was the perfect gear for a home dance night.
The gang gathered in their living room and counted down playing the song. Christmas appeared in full swing in the household, with white trees and dazzling lights lining the fireplace. At the end of the countdown, JLo exclaimed: “hit it!” And with that, she and the kids, who had a few friends over, immediately began to move to the music. Alex opted out, stepping off camera and taking a seat on the couch.
For us, the sweetest moment was seeing JLo and her daughter Emme Muniz, 12, hug and dance together. “Love my Lulu!” Jennifer wrote over a video of her holding Emme close. She was clearly excited to be able to celebrate with her family.
“In the Morning” naturally caused a buzz this week, but in a way that was unexpectedly au natural. “Surprise! Here’s the official cover art for #InTheMorning ✨ Single drops Friday ✨📸: @mertalas & @macpiggott,” Jennifer wrote in a post alongside a photo she posed nude for. The cover snap quickly gained over 7 million likes and heaps of comments.
