EXCLUSIVE: Let's Reminisce About J.Lo and Diddy's Romance With 'Gold Name Plates'
By Sophie Schillaci
Immortalized in song!
J.Lo and Diddy's long-ago romance provided the inspiration for "Gold Name Plates," one track off alt pop duo Bad Lands' new EP Love Heroes.
As the name implies, each contribution on the seven-track record is inspired by an iconic Hollywood couple. Among the others referenced on the EP are Johnny Depp and Kate Moss, Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, JFK and Jackie O, Jim Morrison and Pamela Courson, and Kit and Holly from the 1973 Terrence Malick film Badlands.
The dreamy "Gold Name Plates" is produced by Danja, who has previously worked with Justin Timberlake and Timbaland. Listen to the track in ETonline's player above.
Bad Lands, formerly known as He Met Her, is comprised of recording artists Rocky and Mowgli. Love Heroes is a follow-up to their 2012 EP, Crime Novela.
But it sounds like the former couple still has an amicable relationship. In an interview with Power 106's Big Boy back in March, Lopez was asked whether she'd save Diddy or ex-fiance Ben Affleck if she was in the middle of the ocean with a life raft and room for only one of them.
"I'd let both those motherf***ers drown," she said with a laugh before clarifying. "I'm just joking. Ben, Puffy, you know I love you. You know that. They know it."
Love Heroes is out October 21. See the full track list below.
