Meanwhile, JLo is smoking on the cover of her upcoming album “A.K.A.,” which is set to drop June 17th. Miss Thang revealed the artwork herself via her Twitter account yesterday and is hiding nothing in a skin-tight red vinyl skirt, with a very revealing red corset made out of strategically placed belts. The picture was accompanied by the simple caption, “coming soon.” This follows the March release of the first single from “A.K.A.” “I Luh Ya Papi,” featuring French Montana.
