Poor J-Lo hasn’t had the best luck lately. From her embarrassing fall at the AMA’s to the recent drop from her label, she really needs to prove herself on this week’s episode of Saturday Night Live.
Earlier this week, it was announced that [lastfm]Jennifer Lopez[/lastfm] is no longer signed to her label, Epic Records, which released her debut album On The 6 in 1999. What does this mean for the future of J-Lo? Well, without getting picked up by another label, her new album Love? may never get released.
There has been talk of other interested labels that will sign J-Lo, but if she doesn’t prove she can keep up with the likes of [lastfm]Lady Gaga[/lastfm], [lastfm]Rihanna[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Beyoncé[/lastfm], major labels won’t see her as a vital commodity in the music world.
Her hosting and musical appearance this week on Saturday Night Live may be able to market her talent and prove to labels she’s still relevant in today’s music, that is if she doesn’t repeat a slip-up in her act like she did at the American Music Awards in November.
Regardless whether a new label picks J-Lo up or not, she’ll be able to stay in the limelight by the release of her upcoming film The Back-Up Plan out in April. You can watch Jennifer Lopez Saturday, February 27 on SNL and see if her acting and singing chops still stack up.
