Geboren in Puerto Rico groeit Jennifer Lopez op in New York. Ze stopt met haar studie en gaat aan het werk als danseres. In 1993 vraagt Janet Jackson haar mee te zingen op That’s The Way Love Goes. Daarna verkoos ze een loopbaan als actrice boven die van zangeres. Ze speelde in verschillende films en werkte samen met Jack Nickolson, George Clooney en The Wedding Planner.

In 1999 verschijnt haar eerste album, On The 6. Haar eerste hit, If You Had My Love, wordt direct een nummer 1-hit in de Top 40. Ook de eerste single die van haar tweede album (J Lo) verschijnt, Love Don’t Cost A Thing, komt bovenaan de lijst. De zangeres neemt na haar derde album een korte pauze en komt in 2005 met het album Rebirth, wat mede geproduceerd wordt door Timbaland. Get Right bereikt de tweede plaats, maar de daaropvolgende singles boeken nauwelijks succes. Pas in 2011 scoort ze met On The Floor (samen met Pitbull) weer een top 10-hit.

De zangeres heeft inmiddels 19 hits op haar naam geschreven en deed dat in 2011 met I’m Into You (samen met Lil’ Wayne) voor het laatst. In 2014 werkt ze opnieuw samen met Pitbull. We Are One (Ole Ola), waarop ook de Braziliaanse Claudia Leitte te horen is, is de officiële track voor het Wereldkampioenschap voetbal 2014. In 2015 werkt ze mee aan Try Me, een track van Everything Is 4, het album van Jason Derulo.

Ain't Your Mama is in het voorjaar van 2016 haar nieuwste single. De track is geschreven door Meghan Trainor en geproduceerd door Dr. Luke.


Songtekst

Children grow and women producing
Men go working
Some go stealing
Everyone's got to make a living

L O X
J. Lo
We off the block this year
Went from a low to a lot this year
Everybody mad at the rocks that I wear
I know where I'm goin' and I know where I'm from
You hear LOX in the air
Yea, we're at the airport out DBlock
Where everybody air-forced-out
With a new white T.U. fresh
Nothin' phony with us, make the money, get the mansion, bring the homies with us

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)

From In Living Color to movie scripts
To On the 6 to J. Lo to this headline clips
I stayed grounded as the amounts roll in
I'm real, I thought I told you
I'm real, even on Oprah
That's just me
Nothin phony, don't hate on me
What you get is what you see

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)

I'm down to earth like this
Rockin this business
I've grown up so much
I'm in control and loving it
Rumors got me laughing, kid
Love my life and my public
Put God first
And can't forget to stay real
To me it's like breathing

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)

It take hard work to cash checks
So don't be fooled by the rocks that I got they assets
You get back what you put out
Even if you take the good route
Can't count the hood out
After a while, you know who to blend with
Just keep it real with the ones came in with
Best thing to do is stay low, LOX and J.Lo
Act like they don't, but they know
They can't get a penny from the block ,
At the end of the day she's still Jenny from the block.

Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little, now I have a lot
No matter where I go, I know where I came from (South-Side Bronx!)
