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

Think you gotta keep me iced, you don't
Think I'm gonna spend your cash, I won't
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing
Think I wanna drive your Benz, I don't
If I wanted floss I got my own
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing

When you rolled up in
The Escalade
Saw that dub you gave
To the valet
Knew that it was game
When you looked at me
Pulling up your sleeve so I could see the Rolley bling

Saw you later in
The corner booth
Raising up a toast
So I would notice you
But your heart's a mess
Think you oughta know
Doesn't matter if you're balling out of control

All that matters is
That you treat me right
Give me all the things I need
That money can't buy, yeah

Think you gotta keep me iced, you don't
Think I'm gonna spend your cash, I won't
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing
Think I wanna drive your Benz, I don't
If I wanted floss I got my own
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing

When I took a chance
Thought you'd understand
Baby, credit cards
Aren't romance
So you're tryin' to buy
What's already yours
What I need from you is not available in stores

Seen a side of you
That I really feel
Doing way too much
Never keep it real
If it doesn't change
Gotta hit the road
Now I'm leaving, where's my keys, I've got to go

All that matters is
That you treat me right
Give me all the things I need
That money can't buy, yeah

Think you gotta keep me iced, you don't
Think I'm gonna spend your cash, I won't (Baby)
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing (Love don't cost a thing)
Think I wanna drive your Benz, I don't
If I wanted floss I got my own
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing (Love don't cost a thing)

A thing
A thing
Yeah yeah, yeah

You think the money that you make (That you make)
Can substitute the time you take (The time you take)
Take the keys here to my heart
Then you can win my heart and get what's in my heart (Don't cost a thing)
I think you need to take some time
To show me that your love is true
There's more than dollar signs in you
Then you can win my heart and get what's in my heart (My heart)

Think you gotta keep me iced, you don't
Think I'm gonna spend your cash, I won't
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing (Love don't cost a thing)
Think I wanna drive your Benz, I don't
If I wanted floss I got my own
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing (Even if you were broke, my love don't cost a thing)

Think you gotta keep me iced, you don't
Think I'm gonna spend your cash, I won't
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing
Think I wanna drive your Benz, I don't (Think I wanna)
If I wanted floss I got my own (If I wanted)
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing

Think you gotta keep me iced, you don't (Think I wanna)
Think I'm gonna spend your cash, I won't (If I wanted)
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing
Think I wanna drive your Benz, I don't (Think I wanna)
If I wanted floss I got my own (If I wanted)
Even if you were broke
My love don't cost a thing
