When your phone rings at random and Jennifer Lopez answers, you think it must be a joke, as Noah, 39, tells PEOPLE. You’re like, “Whoa,” and she wants you to come and appear in her visual experience. Well, I’ll join in even if I have no idea what I’m doing.

The 54-year-old Lopez released the teaser for This Is Me…Now: A Love Story earlier this month. The album will be released on February 16 in conjunction with it. In the teaser, the Hustlers star was shown navigating both real-world obstacles and fantastical worlds in search of love.

He remarked, “In terms of an artist lineup, I don’t think many shows can compete with what the Grammys puts on.” Where else will you be able to see Billie Eilish, Burna Boy, Dua Lipa, and other artists perform on the exact same stage? I truly love that, and I don’t take it for granted.
