Jennifer Lopez Explains 'When Will I Get The Ring' Lyric in New Song 'El Anillo' (Exclusive)

By

Jennifer Lopez just took fierce to a whole new level!

The 48-year-old entertainer dropped the sexy music video for her latest Spanish-language single, "El Anillo," which translates to "The Ring," on Friday morning, following her killer live performance during the 2018 Latin Billboard Awards.

ET was exclusively on the set of the fiery new video, where J.Lo dished on the true meaning behind the song's teasy lyrics.

"There's just a special excitement. The song is a great song. It's a fun song, it's a surprising song," Lopez told ET's Keltie Knight. "It's really about recognizing your own value. That's where women are right now, and all of us knowing that we are queens, that we are goddesses, and that we should be treated that way. And that people need to give us that place in their life if they want to be in our life."

In the song, Lopez, who has been dating Alex Rodriguez for over a year, sings: "Nunca había sentido algo tan grande/Y me vuelve loca tu lado salvaje/Tú me has dado tanto que he estado pensando/Ya lo tengo todo, pero/¿Y el anillo pa' cuando?"

The lyrics translate to "I have never felt anything this grand/Your wild side drives me crazy/you have given me so much that I have been thinking that I have it all, but/when will I get the ring?"

When asked if she was hinting at wanting to get an engagement ring, Lopez laughed, replying, "It's more about the value of it. It's kind of like, 'If you want me in your life you have to give me the respect and place in your life that I deserve.' And I think a ring sometimes is a symbol of that but it's more of a symbolic thing."

"Listen I didn't write this song," Lopez added with a smile. "Somebody wrote it for me specifically, which I thought was really funny. Not because I'm thinking of doing anything like this, but because it's a funny thing and I played it for Alex and I was like, 'Are you cool with this? I think it's kind of funny.' He's like, 'Yeah, I'm totally cool with it.' So at the end of the day, it's a great song with a Brazilian funk beat to it and I just loved it. I could just see myself dancing in the video."

As far as the flashy visual, Lopez says "it's a very symbolic video" with "all these queens from all over the world who come together because they're having this ceremony where a king has to fight to even be able to ask this person to marry them."

"So all the queens come together and they really put him through the ringer," she explained, before diving into the video's fashion that involves crowns and capes.

"I wanted to have fun with it push the envelope," the Shades of Blue star dished. "This is a concept that I'd never done so I always have fun with fashion, hair and makeup. [Dancing] has been my thing for a long time and I think in this video you get the best of all worlds that you're used to getting from me when you see my videos. So I'm excited."
