Jennifer Lopez Releases New ‘Marry Me’ Music Video — Is That You, Ben Affleck?
On Friday, Jennifer Lopez dropped a new music video for her song “Marry Me,” which is featured on the movie soundtrack!
While his face is never shown, it looks like Jennifer’s boyfriend Ben Affleck made a subtle appearance in the video.
In the video, Jennifer is seen cozying up in bed with a man who has Ben’s trademark scruff and hair.
The video also offers an intimate look at Lopez recording the song with Maluma.
The video comes just a month after Ben gifted Jennifer with an early Valentine’s Day gift... a remixed music video for her song “On My Way,” which he directed.
On her OnTheJLo newsletter, she shared with her fans, “I am going to share something very special and personal with you that normally that I would only share with my inner circle… It’s an early Valentine’s Day present from Ben.”
The video featured throwback clips of them throughout the years.
Ben is no stranger to Jennifer’s music videos. In 2002, Ben appeared in Jennifer’s iconic music video for “Jenny from the Block.”
Lopez recently opened up about what went wrong with their relationship in the early 2000s.
Despite being so in love back then, the intense criticism in the spotlight was too much for the young couple. The “Hustlers” star shared, “Here was this other thing happening where we were being criticized, and it really destroyed our relationship from the inside out, because we were just too young to understand at that time what were really the most important things in life."
Lopez recalled that difficult time in her life, sharing “It was brutal. It was brutal. It's one of those things that you bury very deeply so you can move on and get about your business. It's funny because Ben and I were together, and we were so in love. It was one of the happiest times of my life."
Jennifer and Ben are approaching the relationship different this time around. She told People magazine, “We both were like, 'Wow, we're so happy and we don't want any of that to come into play again.' We're older now, we're smarter, we have more experience, we're at different places in our lives, we have kids now, and we have to be very conscious of those things. We're so protective because it is such a beautiful time for all of us."
She continued, "I just feel very happy and lucky to be in a relationship that's happy and loving, and I want to do everything I can to protect that and keep it safe. It deserves that, it really does... We hold it sacred."
