Watch: Jennifer Lopez Teases New Song Inspired by Ben Affleck Wedding

Let's get loud for Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck's first wedding anniversary.

One year after the couple said "I do" in Las Vegas, the singer celebrated the major milestone by teasing her track "Midnight Trip to Vegas" from her upcoming album This Is Me…Now.

Lopez shared a video of herself singing the song and wrote out the lyrics in a July 17 edition of her newsletter On the JLo. The tune begins with the two-time Grammy nominee expressing how she "always dreamed that I'd find somebody like you" and goes on to describe the stress of planning a star-studded wedding.

"We're drowning / In orchid arrangements / Dresses and pastries / What if it's raining, yeah? / Is this what we've been dreaming of?" the lyrics state. "It's crowded with families and agents / Room reservations / Which destination / Paps helicopters / Event of the ages / Caught in the matrix." 

And in the song, Lopez reflects on Affleck's suggestion that they escape it all and just tie the knot privately.

"Then you whispered in my ear / Said let's get out of here / We can disappear tonight," the track continues. "What about a / Midnight trip to Vegas / Just me and you baby / Throw the kids in the back / Of the pink Cadillac / And us in the bathroom changing / Midnight trip to Vegas / Both our hearts are racin' / I'll pick you up late / We don't have to wait / Yeah let's do something crazy."

Jennifer Lopez & Ben Affleck: Romance Rewind

The Hustlers star has previously spoken about the duo's decision to elope ahead of their grand wedding in Georgia.  

"The wedding was so stressful," J.Lo said on a January episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!. "And one day, Ben just says, 'F--k it, let's just go to Vegas and get married tonight.'"

So, they did.

"I was like, 'I cannot go. I have rehearsal today for my show,'" she continued. "And he was like, 'Go to rehearsal. When you get back here, I'm gonna have everything all set up.' Three of our kids were at camp, two of them were with us. He was like, 'They're going to be our witnesses. Let's go, we're doing it tonight.' And we did….It was amazing. It was the best night of our lives."

Lopez, who is mom to 15-year-old twins Emme and Max from her former marriage to Marc Anthony, announced her marriage to Affleck—who shares kids Violet, 17; Seraphina, 14; and Samuel, 11, with ex-wife Jennifer Garner—in a July 2022 edition of On the JLo.

"Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient," the Maid in Manhattan actress—who rekindled her romance with the Oscar winner in 2021 after they'd previously broken off their engagement in the early aughts—wrote at the time. "Exactly what we wanted." 

Lopez and Affleck did go on to have their big ceremony at his estate in Georgia that August, heading down the aisle a second time in front of family and friends including Matt Damon and Kevin Smith. To look back at photos from this celebration, scroll on.
