Contents

Production

This album includes "Porque Te Marchas" (Why Are You Leaving), the Spanish version of "(Can't Believe) This Is Me", from Jennifer's last album, Rebirth. The bonus track, "Quién Será" (Sway), was originally recorded in 2004 for the movie Shall We Dance?, but it was later replaced by The Pussycat Dolls' version.

She is the executive producer of a mini-series on Univisión named after and based on this CD. The mini-series premiered on October 30, 2007 at 10:00 pm Eastern/9:00 pm Central Time on Univisión. Christian Borrero and Adriana Cruz are the leads. At the end of each episode, Jennifer performs one song from this album. On the first episode she performed "Sola".

Singles

The lead single of the album, "Qué Hiciste", was released to some radio stations in January in North America, and in mid-February in Europe. The song was released to major radio stations on March 27, 2007 which was the same day the album was released. The video for the title track was filmed in Las Vegas in October 2006 and was directed by Michael Haussman.

With Como Ama una Mujer, Jennifer Lopez is one of the few performers to debut in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 with a Spanish-language album, (Other artists who achieved this are Shakira – who to this date holds the record for highest debut for a Spanish-language album – Mana, Juanes, Daddy Yankee, Don Omar, Wisin & Yandel and Selena). It stayed at No.1 in the Billboard Top Latin Albums for 4 consecutive weeks, and spent 26 weeks on that chart before it left the top 100. With the Univision airing of the drama TV-series Como Ama Una Mujer featuring songs from the album, the album went back to the chart, hitting the No.67 position after Lopez's performance of "Porque te marchas" on the 3rd episode of the show.
