After the success of her hits-filled debut, ‘On The 6’, we can only imagine how much Team Jennifer Lopez was dreading the pressure associated with the infamous “sophomore slump”
Then along came ‘Love Don’t Cost A Thing’, the first single lifted from Lopez’s second offering, ‘J.Lo’. And, from that moment, if people didn’t know, then they knew Ms. Lopez was there to stay.
‘Love’ was released at the tail end of 2000, peaking at #3 in the U.S. and #1 in the U.K. in January 2001.
The song sees the triple threat diva confronting a potential-lover about how he shouldn’t try to impress her with material things. You now, the tried and tested formula which was all the rage that side of the new millennia.
Still, the best thing about this tune is its accompanying music video. Essentially comprised of shots of Jenny From The Block driving, strutting and stripping her way down to the beach, it’s its killer dance sequence which elevates the release to another plateau. From the cornrows to the sneakers and to the special effects, and of course the choreography, everything is on point.
Set to take to the stage at tonight’s AMA’s, the 42 year old continues to show that she’s still a bad momma shut your mouth! We can’t but salute her!
