J-Lo’s ghostly inspiration

Jennifer Lopez admits she found inspiration from beyond the grave when penning songs for her latest album. While working on her forthcoming Spanish record `Como Ama Una oujer’ (How A Woman Loves), her husband Marc Anthony had an apparition. J.Lo explains, “Marc woke up and said, ‘I just had the craziest dream.’ I said, ‘What was the dream?’ And he said, ‘Rocio Durcal was in this room. She was saying, “Come here, listen to this. This song is for Jennifer,” and she was singing a melody.'” Thirty-seven-year-old Jennifer is a huge fan of late Spanish singer Rocio, who had passed away two weeks previously. J-Lo continues, “She was a very beautiful, famous singer. So of course, I’m like, ‘That sounds good. Hold on one second.'” J-Lo then grabbed her mobile phone for Marc to sing the song into their answering machine. Later, with the help of a translator, the singer took the track to the studio and worked on it. She says, “It’s an incredibly intense song. I love it and I hope other people love it as much as I do.” [19 September 2006]
