JLo Named Billboard Music Awards’ Icon 2014 as New Album Debuts

JLo Named Billboard Music Awards' Icon 2014 as New Album Debuts

Jennifer Lopez looks red hot on the cover of A.K.A., her 10th album in 15 years.

The seemingly ageless singer (she’s 44!) dressed her famous derriere in a red pencil skirt. Lopez also put her cleavage front and center, courtesy of a belted red top that barely covered her nipples.

“Music has always been my first love,” Lopez said in a press release. “As a girl who grew up in the Bronx, I listened to everything. In my career I have always made music that is a reflection of me and where I am in my life. I do what I feel and do things that feel authentic to me. I am a lot of different things and I do a lot of different things. I love hip-hop, pop, dance music and R&B. And on this, my 10th album release, I have created a collection of songs that make me feel good and make me feel happy.”

A.K.A.—featuring “I Luh Ya Papi” and “First Love”—is available June 17 via Capitol Records.

As if that weren’t enough, it was announced Monday that Lopez will receive the Icon Award at the Billboard Music Awards. The event will take place at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena May 18.

“Jennifer Lopez is one of the most iconic performers of her generation,” Larry Klein, producer of the Billboard Music Awards, tells E! News in a statement. “We are thrilled to honor her historic career with the 2014 Icon Award and will be on the edge of our seats like everyone else when she takes the stage.”

Past winners include Neil Diamond, Prince and Stevie Wonder.

Lopez will also perform with Pitbull during the show, which will be broadcast live on ABC. The frequent collaborators will debut the official anthem for this year’s FIFA World Cup, “We Are One (Ole Ola).”

The duo join a lineup up of previously announced performers that includes 5 Seconds of Summer, Luke Bryan, Jason Derülo, Florida Georgia Line, Imagine Dragons, John Legend and OneRepublic.
