Jennifer Lopez has assured fans over the future of her new album Love? after parting ways with her longtime music label - the record is set for release this summer.

The singer's seventh studio album with Sony's Epic Records was due out in April, but her manager announced earlier this week that Lopez had left the label.

The Jenny from the Block hitmaker was subsequently hit by rumours she fell out with record bosses at Sony over her new music, with online gossips alleging the album had been thrown into jeopardy by the split.

But Lopez is adamant she "reached friendly terms" with Sony chiefs over her departure, and she's keen for Love? to hit shelves as soon as possible.

Lopez says, "I am making this statement to put an end to any confusion in regards to my next album, titled Love. I have belonged to the Sony family since the beginning of my career as a singer and together we've had great success.

"I have fulfilled my contractual responsibilities with Sony/Epic up to this point, and we have both reached friendly terms about my departure from the label.

"I'm also happy to say that we've found a new home for my album Love and that it is slated for release in the summer of 2010."
