Jennifer Lopez's children convinced her to record a song about curvy butts for her new album.

The 'I Luh Ya Papi' singer was struggling to decide whether to feature a track entitled 'Big Booty' on her eighth studio album - which is set for release in June - until her six-year-old twins, Emme and Max, stepped in to lend a helping hand.

Speaking on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!' last night (28.04.14), she said: ''This song is a Diplo track. He's a really great producer and we were in the studio, you know, and this track comes up and everyone in the studio is like this is the type of song that J.Lo needs to do. And I'm like, 'Never in my life will I do a song called 'Big Booty' ever, it will never happen.'

''We end up writing the track. I take the (songs) to my car afterwards and try to live with it to see, like, which ones in the studio this week will I go and record afterwards. So I'm the car with my twins Max and Emme, who were five at the time. I'm listening to a bunch of songs and the minute they hear 'Big Booty' they were going crazy. I don't know if they thought they were saying a dirty word, if they felt naughty, but they loved this song and because they loved it I recorded it.''

The 44-year-old star was confident to trust her kids' musical tastes, especially after noticing her son Max has a talent for recognising the biggest hits, comparing his ear for a tune with Grammy Award-winning producer Clive Davis.

J.Lo - who had the twins with her ex-husband Marc Anthony - said: ''My son has a very good ear. He could be the next Clive Davis. I know he has a good ear for music. We will be in the car listening to the radio and flipping through channels and all of a sudden he'll be like go back. Right away he can pick on a first listen, only the big, big smashes.''
