<P><a href="/music/artist/lopez_jennifer/artist.jhtml">Jennifer Lopez</a> certainly has had some big hits. Since releasing her debut album, <i>On the 6,</i> in 1999, J.Lo has commanded pop radio with tracks like "If You Had My Love," "I'm Real," "Love Don't Cost a Thing" and "Jenny From the Block." </p><div class="player-placeholder right" id="vid:715138" width="240" height="211"></div><p> And she hasn't stopped. This year, she released <a href="/news/articles/1663220/jennifer-lopez-love-album-release-party.jhtml"><i>Love?,</i></a> featuring club bangers like "On the Floor." Now, J.Lo plans to give her fans a proper greatest-hits album. "I just got the call a week ago that the greatest-hits album for Jennifer Lopez is coming up," vocal producer Kuk Harrell told MTV News. "Now I'm just waiting for them to put on the schedule [and] let me know what songs we're actually cutting and stuff like that." While he didn't have too many details about what fans should expect on the album, Harrell did share who else Jenny is hitting the studio with. "I think [when] I find out what the direction is, I will definitely go in the lab. I will get in the lab with Tricky Stewart and The-Dream and see what we can come up with for it." Harrell has certainly been busy this year. He worked with <a href="/news/articles/1674844/rihanna-talk-that-talk.jhtml">Rihanna on her <i>Talk That Talk</i> album</a>, Justin Bieber on <a href="/news/articles/1675015/justin-bieber-new-album.jhtml"><i>Under the Mistletoe</i></a> (and will work with him again on his next album) and now has plans to hook up with Lopez. He's grateful for all the opportunities he's been given. "I'm so fortunate to be able to work with Rihanna and Justin Bieber ... and Jennifer Lopez for that matter, so anytime a call comes in to work with the three of them, it's always 'yes,' because it's just assumed [it'll be good]," he said. "They're superstars, so how are you going to turn them down? Unless we have a scheduling conflict, but it's always a 'yes.' It's always an immediate 'we're gonna kill it.' That's when my competitive edge comes out. It has to be the best. It has to be better than anything we've ever done." <i>What tracks do you hope to see on J.Lo's greatest-hits album?
