Jennifer Lopez is gearing up to relaunch her music career with new single Ain’t Your Mama.

And to help her along the way she’s brought back a classic for some eye-catching cover artwork. Get your mind out of the gutter, we’re not (only) talking about the asset JLo famously crooned about with Iggy Azalea on Booty.

This stylized retro image of a surprised-looking Lopez in tight black shorts is actually from a shoot Lopez did 13 years ago for Esquire.

Eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out the match, and a further picture from the same 2003 shoot has also been used for an alternate single cover.

Lopez has been slowly drip-feeding out Ain’t Your Mama ahead of its debut on iTunes today. There’s been a lip-sycning along to the track, plus the booty-heavy 50s pin-up photos and what looks like a tease for an eventual music or lyric video.

JLo will perform the track live for the first time on tonight’s finale of American Idol.

Discussing the Meghan Trainor-penned track with ET, Lopez said: “Guys have this tendency, once they love you in the beginning and you’re the hottest woman on Earth, that all of a sudden it’s like, ‘Okay… where’s my food?’

“Women are like ‘What? Are you kidding me? Take me out! What are you doing right now?’ But it’s a really fun song and everybody seems to be responding to it really well, so I’m happy about that.”

JLo’s currently flying high with hit police drama TV show Shade Of Blue and a Las Vegas residency that’ll resume in May. More essential JLo viewing comes in the form of her recent Carpool Karaoke with James Corden.

Ain’t Your Mama is her first single since Feel The Light from the soundtrack to Home last year. It looks like she might be readying her first album since 2014’s AKA, which only reached No 41 in the UK.
