Jennifer Lopez to release new album

JENNIFER Lopez has secured a new record deal with L.A. Reid's Epic Records - six years after leaving the label.

The 'On The Floor' hitmaker is planning to release new music with her longtime mentor - who she signed with at Island Def Jam in 2010 after departing Epic - and the pair met for dinner on Monday night to celebrate the superstar singer's return.

An insider told Us Weekly: "She had dinner with [her manager] Benny [Medina] and L.A. Reid Monday night at Il Mulino to celebrate her new record deal! Jennifer and L.A. are longtime friends, and they love working together.

"She has a bunch of hits. But she's always making music. And she's really excited to work with L.A. to put new stuff out."

Jennifer confirmed she has reunited with L.A. by sharing a link to an article announcing the partnership on Twitter on Wednesday (02.03.16).

She tweeted: "Heading Back Home!! Jennifer Lopez Signs New Deal With L.A. Reid's Epic Records - @LA_Reid (sic)"

The 46-year-old beauty, who was also previously signed to Capitol Records, produced some of her biggest hits when she was first signed to Epic, including 2001 hit 'Play' and 2002's 'Jenny from the Block'.

Jennifer's last studio record was her eighth studio album, 2014's 'A.K.A', which was released on Captiol.

The LP included collaborations with Pitbull, French Montana, T.I., Iggy Azalea, Rick Ross, Nas and Tyga.
