Jennifer Lopez will release her new album, Love?, tomorrow. Along with the platinum single, “On The Floor” featuring Pitbull, the album features a Lady Gaga-penned tune called “Hypnotico,” which was produced by Gaga collaborator RedOne. Lopez told us how they hooked up.

 “I heard a demo not with her (Lady Gaga) on it, but with someone else on it. And I really liked it and I asked who produced this and who’s involved with this and I was told it was RedOne and Lady Gaga and that is how RedOne and I actually started working together. I got on the phone with him and I told him I really liked the track and he’s like, ‘If you and I work together, I’d like to actually get into the studio with you and really, really create stuff from scratch,’ which is what we ended up doing.”

RedOne also produced “On The Floor” and three other songs on the album. J. Lo’s Love? is out tomorrow.
