From The Vault is back this week with a smash hit from an unstoppable diva.
Today’s pick is ‘I’m Gonna Be Alright’ by Jennifer Lopez.
Originally featured on Jennifer’s sophomore effort, ‘Alright’ was remixed by Track Masters and issued as the second single from her remix album ‘J to tha L-O.’ The single featured fellow New Yorker Nas and was built on a sample of ‘I Got 5 On It’ by Luniz.
It was the Puerto Rican artist’s sixth Top 10 single in the US – peaking at #10. Elsewhere it placed #3 in the UK, #6 in Germany and was a Top 20 hit in France too.
The legendary Dave Meyers directed the track’s accompanying video which was set in the Bronx – where Jenny From The Block grew up.
Depicting a day in the life of a “real girl,” the beauty can be seen sunbathing in the street, hitting the laundromat, jamming at a music store and walking out on a relationship. All in a day, naturally.
Ex-husband Cris Judd is also featured in the video – a testament to La Lopez’s uninhibited approach to her romances.
Ain’t it funny how 20 years in, Ms. Lopez’ career seems to go from strength to strength? Though not the surefire chart darling she was during the early 00’s, rest assured she’s riding high in a major way somewhere, somehow. Whether with her music, movies, TV shows, or cosmetics….she’s unstoppable.
With the entertainer ending her Vegas run yesterday evening, we’re already excited about what’s next for Jenny and how she’ll choose to push her next musical journey to the masses.
We get the feeling that, any which way, she’s… gonna be alright. Don’t you?
