When it came time for Jennifer Lopez to think up names for her new designer shoe line, the singer knew exactly where to look for inspiration.

"I think of family and they're my stability, they keep me grounded," Lopez told ET's Carly Steel at the launch of her new capsule collection -- Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez -- at Neiman Marcus in Beverly Hills on Thursday. "There was a connection there, so I was like, 'I'm going to name it after all the women in my family.'"

Teaming up with world-renowned Italian shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti, Lopez created some super stylish designs that she says also represent the family members she named them after -- such as the Emme, a pink python-printed gladiator sandal named after her 8-year-old daughter.

"She's soft and fierce, you know what I mean? She is like, the combination of everything good in this world," Lopez explained. "So is this shoe!"

Aside from her new line of high-end footwear, the "Feel the Light" singer is also getting ready to release new music off her long-awaited Spanish-language album, which she recently teased on Instagram with a cute snapshot of her with her twins, Emme and brother Max.

As for when fans can expect to hear some of her new tracks, Lopez said, "It's going to be sooner rather than later."

"Probably in the next couple months I hope," she explained. "We hope to have a single out [soon]. I finished it this weekend down in Miami. I finished my part, now they're producing the rest of it. Now the real work begins for them. I did all the vocals already, so we'll see."

The 47-year-old singer had nothing but praise for her collaborators and the fun she had recording the "beautiful album."

"I love everybody that I'm working with and it's just been a really, really good experience," she said. One person who she worked closely with during the production was her ex-husband and the father of her twins, Marc Anthony, who is an executive producer on the album.

"It's been a great time for us," Lopez said.
