Oh, how time flies!
June 1 marked 20 years since Jennifer Lopez – the former ‘In Living Color‘ “fly girl”-turned-actress – flew up the Billboard charts with her debut album, ‘On the 6.’ Preceded by its chart-topping lead single, ‘If You Had My Love,’ the project – helmed by then-boyfriend Sean “Puffy” Combs, serial hitmaker Rodney Jerkins, and more music industry heavy hitters – peaked at #8 on the Billboard charts and was later certified triple platinum.
Launching Lopez into the stratosphere of entertainment and laying the groundwork for her ultimate flexes of ‘triple threat status’ over the two decades that followed, the 49-year-old took to social media over the weekend to pay tribute to the birthday of the album that started it all for her.
As if celebrating her debut album’s birthday isn’t enough, Lopez is about to blow out her own candles as her 50th birthday approaches (July 24).
To commemorate the milestone, the singer/actress is hitting the road on the ‘It’s My Party’ tour. Set for a June 7th kick off in Los Angeles, click here for dates and more information.
