Jennifer Lopez and the Movies
Lopez started her acting career early in the 1990s with movies like Mi Familia, Money Train, and U-Turn, but her breakthrough was the part of Selena Quintanilla in the movie Selena. She followed this with a well-received performance in Out Of Sight with George Clooney. She has also appeared in The Cell, Angel Eyes, The Wedding Planner, Enough, Maid in Manhattan, Gigli, Jersey Girl, and Shall We Dance, and has appeared in several other movies and television shows.

Jennifer Lopez and Music
J.Lo's music, mainly pop and R&B, includes the albums J.Lo and On The 6, a reference to the subway line she used to take growing up in Soundview.

On The 6 was released in 1999 and featured the massive first single, "If You Had My Love". It also contained the Spanish language, Latin-flavored duet "No me ames" with Marc Anthony, which was an international hit and was not released as a single in the United States, although the video got moderate airplay on American VH1 and The Box as a novelty.

In the fall of 1999, the album's second American single, "Waiting For Tonight" was released. It was not a hit on the same scale as "If You Had My Love", but was huge nonetheless. The memorable video capitalized on the millennium craze of the time, featuring J. Lo at a futuristic dance party in a jungle, while an enormous clock counted down the seconds to the year 2000. The video also had a popular dance remix, by popular club remixer, Hex Hector. To date, the remix video still gets occasional airplay on MTV2, during dance blocks.

The albums also included the other hit singles like, "Feelin' So Good", a hip hop track which contained guest raps by Big Pun and Fat Joe and the Latin-dance-flavored track, "Let's Get Loud".

Towards the end of 2000, Lopez released "Love Don't Cost A Thing", her first single from her second album, J. Lo. Upon the album's release in early 2001, it quickly rose to the top of the charts; as had the single, which became her biggest hit since "If You Had My Love". The second single, "Play", which was written by rising teen star, Christina Milian, was a huge dance radio and club hit in early 2001 and was also successful on pop radio.

The album's next two singles, "I'm Real" and "Ain't It Funny" were her biggest ever hits both spending many weeks on top of the Billboard charts. However, to capitalize on this, Lopez asked Murder Inc. to remix both songs, completely changing the lyrics and melodies and adding raps from Ja Rule in both songs, and from Caddillac Tah to "Ain't It Funny (Remix)". The "I'm Real" and "Ain't It Funny" remixes were two of the biggest pop and rap hits in late 2001 and early 2002, respectively, and their more hip hop sound gave J.Lo street credibility and brought her music to a whole new group of fans.

She continued the successful trend by getting 50 Cent and Nas to write rhymes for two remixes of her next single, "I'm Gonna Be Alright". In mid-2002, Lopez released a remix album called J To The L-O: The Remixes, featuring the already popular rap remixes of "I'm Real", "I'm Gonna Be Alright", and "Ain't It Funny", and well as the dance remix of "Waiting For Tonight". The album also included rarer dance and hip hop remixes of her past singles, and a new song, a ballad called "Alive," which was included in Lopez' movie, Enough.

In the fall of 2002, Lopez released This Is Me... Then, which spawned three hugely popular singles: "Jenny From The Block," (based on the "Off the Books" by the Beatnuts which included raps from Jadakiss and Styles P; "All I Have," one of 2003's most popular songs to date, which was a duet with LL Cool J; and "I'm Glad". Later she released the fourth single "Baby I Love You" the musical theme for the movie "Gigli." Last, she released the fifth single "The One", but the video was based on the remixed version of the song which featured East Coast Rapper Joe Budden.

On November 18, 2003, she released her fifth album, Reel Me, which included a DVD having all her music videos from her first video "If You Had My Love" to her last one "Baby I Love You." This album also included a bonus track, "Baby I Love You (Remix)" featuring R. Kelly.
