Jennifer Lopez is not slowing down in 2020 as she hits the cover of Vanity Fair's latest magazine issue alongside fellow stars Eddie Murphy and Renée Zellweger.
On Tuesday, the singer and dancer posted three incredible pictures taken from a photoshoot for the highly acclaimed magazine's 26th annual Hollywood Issue.

In the first photo, we see Murphy seated on an old-school bike wearing a classic tux with no tie. With attitude, he raises one eyebrow for the shot.
Behind him, Zellweger leaned over wearing a stunning low-cut dress. The blonde beauty had her hair in a side-swept style. The cover's backdrop is a brick red color.
Next to them, Lopez looked gorgeous wearing a shiny, black suit with a very low-cut at the front. She paired it with matching long pants and a black hat. She also donned a pair of gloves.
The fantastic cover photo is followed up by a grayscale portrait of Lopez wearing a tulle outfit with some jewelry. Her eyes are closed as she holds one hand to her face and the other underneath her chin.
In the last shot, we again see the three celebrities in an orange landscape. Zellweger stands in a white dress on the road, and Murphy is off-road in the same tux.
Lopez stands sideways as she uses a phone booth while wearing a gorgeous red off-shoulder dress. In just a few hours, the post amassed nearly half a million likes.
Within the pages of the magazine, Lopez discussed her career. Most recently, she's been getting a lot of praise for the film "Hustlers," which came out last September.
On playing a villain for the first time, she said:
"It was the first time I got to play a character who was unapologetically out for herself and kind of bad, actually taken over by greed... She was so many different things."
Yet people love her here. So much so, one fan said she was ready to riot upon learning that the singer was snubbed from the Oscar nominations list on Monday.
While Lopez has been recognized elsewhere for her performance as Ramona, the Academy Awards paid no mind to the actress. Fans were enraged as a result.
Lopez lost out on a Golden Globe and a Critics' Choice awards after nominations. Fortunately, the actress is still up for a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor.
When she learned of the news back in December, she got emotional in a reaction video shared to Instagram. Holding back tears while working out, she spoke about her love of acting.
She also encouraged other struggling actors not to give up and thanked viewers and the SAG Awards. It looks like the Oscar snub is just a tiny bump in her road to success in 2020.
