New song about Ben Affleck announced
First Wedding Anniversary: Jennifer Lopez announces new song “Midnight Trip to Vegas” about her marriage to Ben Affleck.
Just in time for the first wedding anniversary: Jennifer Lopez (53) announces a song about her marriage to Ben Affleck (50). In her newsletter “On the JLo” the singer gave her fans a first impression of “Midnight Trip to Vegas”. She presented the full lyrics and a short video in which she moved her lips to a snippet of the song. A fan posted the clip Twitter ready.
On July 17, 2022, Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck said yes for the first time – secretly and in a small circle in Las Vegas. Just a few weeks later, the two Hollywood stars celebrated in grand style at Affleck’s estate in the US state of Georgia.
Spontaneous wedding trip to Las Vegas
In “Midnight Trip to Vegas” J.Lo now tells about the spontaneous wedding in the gambling town. At the beginning she sings about the preparations for a big celebration, family and agents swarm around. Then Affleck whispers in her ear, “Let’s get out of here, we can get out of here tonight. What about a midnight trip to Vegas? Just you and me.” At least they pack the kids in a pink Cadillac and drive off.
Affleck and Lopez had made it just before A Little White Wedding Chapel closed a year ago. Stars like Frank Sinatra (1915-1998), Bruce Willis (68) and Britney Spears (41) have already married in the chapel. They had to do without an Elvis impersonator, there was no longer one on site.
“Midnight Trip to Vegas” is a prelude to J.Lo’s new album. “This Is Me…Now” is scheduled to be released this year, but there is no exact release date yet. Lopez announced the new LP in November 2022, 20 years after her album This Is Me… Then. Both records are dedicated to Ben Affleck. The singer and the actor began dating in 2002 but called it off a year later.
