Singer and actor Jennifer Lopez recently released the cover art for her new single In The Morning. With nothing on her body save a blinding diamond ring on her finger, JLo, as she is popularly known, has bared it all for the cover she shared on her social media profiles, collectively dropping jaws everywhere. Needless to say, the reactions to the nude single cover this 51-year-old have been overwhelming.
In The Morning, set for a November 27 release, had already drummed up excitement after Lopez shared a video teaser of the single earlier this week, featuring snippets of her bare body ahead of a full preview of the nude cover art. The photo is captioned: “Surprise! Here’s the official cover art for #InTheMorning Single drops Friday,” with credits to photographer duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

However, naysayers feel Lopez should have known better than to use nudity as a marketing gimmick to sell her single. One social media user told the singer to “act her age.”
🤢🤮Aging gracefully? Ever heard of it you hag? 🤢 Can't sing, can't act but always up to strip clothes for camera. Act your goddamn age old woman. https://t.co/x5XGXrzh1j

On November 15, Lopez was named People’s Icon of 2020 during the E! People’s Choice Awards. “As a Latina and as a woman, we have to work twice as hard to get the opportunities, sometimes my big dreams and my ambitions, it made the people around me nervous. ‘You can’t be an actress. You’re an actress, what you want to sing? You’re an artist, you won’t be taken seriously as a businesswoman.’ The more that they said I couldn’t, the more I knew that I had to. So now here I stand so very grateful knowing that the true measure of my success is not in box office numbers or records sold, but from the love that I feel from all of you,” She said in her acceptance speech.
