Jennifer hinted that she doesn’t seem to mind the buzz around Bennifer with another cryptic Instagram post. The star was feeling nostalgic for her third album, This Is Me Then , posting a video montage featuring highlights from the period, including scenes from “Jenny From The Block,” in which Ben co-starred. “All my albums are very special to me, but This is me… So it’s my favorite album I’ve ever done… so far! ” she wrote. “I know a lot of you have heard me say that before, so in honor of my #JLovers who helped him re-enter the album charts AGAIN after 19 years… here’s a little TBT,” he added.

Furthermore, it is his LP most associated with Ben due to the seductive track “Dear Ben” and “I’m Glad”, which is believed to be about him. “I’m glad when I’m making love to you / I’m glad for the way you make me feel / I love it because you seem to blow my mind / Every time,” she sings on the Cory Rooney – produced track.
