This Is Me… Now the song was inspired by Ben Affleck?

Like its predecessor "This Is Me...Now" in 2002, it is full of love songs. At least one is definitely about Affleck, "Dear Ben. Two." Lopez wrote the original in 2002, telling him how much he meant to her, and she sang passionate lyrics like “I love you, you are perfect/The embodiment of my dreams” and “I think God created you for me/A combination of passion and loyalty.”

Several other songs also appear to be inspired by the couple's romance. "Midnight in Vegas" appears to be a clear reference to her and Affleck's wedding in Sin City in July, while "This Time Around" may be an allusion to their reunion after nearly 20 years apart. Beloved works like "To Be Yours," "Mad in Love," "Can't Get Enough," "Hearts and Flowers" and "The Greatest Love Story Never Told" were likely inspired by Benny Inspired by Eph 2.0 as well.

All will be revealed in 2023, but hopefully Lopez will continue to reveal tidbits between now and then.
