When the singer needed advice for the visual, Lopez said she went to the Gone Girl star.

"Not that he’s ever really made videos or anything like that, but I just trust his opinion and his ideas," she explained. "Nobody kind of knows my story or me more than he does. I really feel like he gets me and he understands me, obviously."

"All of you have been following my journey, and I think you’ve seen me," Lopez told fans during the YouTube live stream. "What I wanted to tell everybody with the album... is true love actually exists."
