Jennifer Lopez fans just rediscovered a song she wrote for Ben Affleck in 2002 and honestly we're struggling to understand why these two ever called things off!?

J Lo and Ben dated from 2002 to 2003, and shocked fans when they broke up just days before their wedding was due to go ahead. But fast forward nearly 20 years and things are looking pretty different.

Since Jennifer split from partner of four years, Alex Rodriguez, in April 2020, there's been much speculation about whether she and Ben would reunite. Most recently, on June 15, the pair were spotted sharing a very steamy PDA session while out in Malibu. Which tbh we're taking as confirmation that Bennifer 2.0 is officially official.

So what's this about a song then?

Back in 2002, J Lo dedicated her This Is Me... Then album to Ben as a way to celebrate their engagement. And last month, nearly two decades after the album's release, Jennifer revealed on Instagram that This Is Me... Then is her "favourite album" ever. Coincidence?

After the revelation, Bennifer fans revisited the album and are quite literally going wild over one track in particular – "Dear Ben".

But it's not hard to see why fans are so obsessed, the song lyrics are seriously romantic. In the track, J Lo sings: "You're perfect, I just can't control myself, I can't be with no one else." She then goes on to sing, "I love you, you're perfect, a manifestation of my dreams."

Fans quickly took to socials to express their excitement about the track.

"J LO CAN FINALLY SING "DEAR BEN" AGAIN OMG", tweeted one fan, "So J Lo just posted on Instagram how "This is me...then" is her favourite album ever. Coincidentally it's an album dedicated to ...... Ben Affleck. (There is also a song called Dear Ben)," said another.

Given that things are looking very much back on between the couple, here's to hoping J Lo dedicates another album to Bennifer 2.0 🤞
