Breakups Are Messy, J.Lo’s Aftershocks Felt In Drake’s New Album “More Life”

In an album bursting with dope features, one anticipated voice was missing, but her presence was felt throughout: Jennifer Lopez.

In “Free Smoke” the first song of the 22-track album, which dropped on OVO Sound radio this Saturday, Drake raps: “I drunk text J.Lo/ Old number, so it bounce back.” Ouch.

‘Twas only a few weeks ago when everyone was like “¿Qué qué?” when Drake popped up in romantically-lit photos with Queen of the Bronx, Jennifer Lopez.

Look who rolled up to my show tonight to say hi!! @champagnepapi #lovehim #jlovegas #ALLIHAVE

You’d be smiling that hard, too, if your teenage crush turned around and made you their #MCM.

They shared lovey-dovey smirks in a two-person sweater-blanket bathed in the light of a fireplace made by angels.

But if he only knew what the future held, *he* might have held on tighter.

And fans declared them “Prom King and Queen of Pop,” as we watched them dance quinceañera-style in what looked like a music video shoot.

#Drake & #JLo ?? #DraLo

I hope footage of this party ends up in a future music video, where he’s watching old home movies and crying into his hot cocoa.

In this video, the once-couple is dancing to the new hot track “Get It Together,” with what sounds a lot like Jennifer Lopez vocals.

The album version however, features, Jorja Smith doing a beautiful job, hitting some real silky notes. Did Drake get salty and cut J.Lo off the album after seeing her with Alex Rodriguez?

The most obvious nod to J.Lo is a song using the chorus of her hit “If You Had My Love.” The new song is titled “Teenage Fever,” which is appropriate if you consider teenage Drake watched her rise to stardom.

Seems like she’s always had a big impact on his life. Poor #Draque.

Now all we’re left with are the ‘what ifs.’

Walking into work like… #cryingdrake ? #drake #mondayitis #mood

What do you think? Was Drake salty, so he cut J.Lo from the album? Or are their collaborations still in the work? Share this with links below!

Jennifer Lopez And Matthew McConaughey Honor The 20th Anniversary Of ‘The Wedding Planner’

Jennifer Lopez And Matthew McConaughey Honor The 20th Anniversary Of ‘The Wedding Planner’

2001. A year of quite a lot of big events and don’t fans of The Wedding Planner know it!

Twenty years ago the beloved romantic comedy starring Jennifer Lopez as a cynical but ambitious wedding planner and Matthew McConaughey the engaged doctor with who she falls in love with.

Twenty years later and of course we needed a reunion to celebrate.

Fortunately, the leading stars reunited for a virtual screening of the 20th anniversary of the hit film. 

During an Instagram Live event, the two actors reunited to wax nostalgia about their iconic romantic comedy from their respective homes. During the sweet gathering, Lopez and McConaughey talked about all things related to that time including their kissing scenes. Recalling one kissing moment in particular, Lopez said to McConaughey “You said, ‘Miss Lopez, I’m going to kiss you now.’ And I said, ‘OK, let’s do it. Let’s hit it.'”

Speaking about the movie’s impact on their career they both admitted that they’ve been lucky.

“When you do these movies… we’ve been lucky enough to continue doing what we love,” Lopez explained. “There are certain moments that always stick out in your head.”

“I so enjoyed working with you,” Lopez added. “We had such a nice rapport and chemistry. We were somewhat at the beginning of our careers at that time. It was exciting to be working on any movie. I still feel that way. It was a magical time. I’m such a romantic too that working on those types of movies have a real feel for me.”

Sweetly, McConaughey praised Lopez for her talent and ambition.

“You prepare so well for everything you do. I love your intentionality, I love how deliberate you are. You would have it down, you love the choreography. I love your deliberation, and the preparation you have,” he added before lamenting the fall of romcoms. “In a way, [The Wedding Planner] was the last of the rom-coms,” McConaughey said. “The rom-com doesn’t get made anymore.”

Lopez was quick to point out that she’s worked hard to ensure that rom-coms don’t die altogether. “I wanna know there’s a happily ever after, I wanna know that. Even though we know we’ve lived through a tough year, miracles still happen, love prevails, things can go right, for sure.”

J.Lo’s Social Media Challenge Has Backfired Spectacularly And People Are Having Too Much Fun

J.Lo’s Social Media Challenge Has Backfired Spectacularly And People Are Having Too Much Fun

Social media challenges are everywhere and some of them are super fun. However, J.Lo’s attempt to create a social media challenge for the anniversary of her song “Love Don’t Cost A Thing.” The challenge has drawn more trolling responses than genuine and here’s why.

J.Lo was probably expecting a different reaction to #LoveDontCostAThingChallenge.

J.Lo’s song “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” was released 20 years ago and it was a very important moment in Latino pop culture. We all know the song by heart and if you say you don’t then you aren’t being honest. Yet, J.Lo’s way of trying to celebrate the song’s release is, well, bizarre. We should keep in mind that we are dealing with an ongoing pandemic and it is winter, but J.Lo wants you to find a beach, walk around, and through your clothes and jewelry everywhere?

In fact, one of the responses questioning the challenge has more likes than the original post.

J.Lo literally just walked on the beach and threw her jewelry and clothing around. Like, what is happening here? There are so many questions right now and the text of the original tweet offers no real guidance. How is this a fun challenge?

@_nellerita makes a good point. We don’t have valuables that we can just throw around for a social media challenge. Most challenges involve dances, which gives a set parameter of what to do. This is just too open ended and, quite frankly, a wild concept.

Legit, people have a lot of questions about what is happening with the challenge and the tossing of jewelry.

A lot of people don’t have jewelry just laying around, tbh. We might have an Apple watch that is the only real thing we wear but why would we throw it? It is clear that J.Lo was hoping to see people recreate the iconic scene of the music video when she stripped down to go into the water. While the moment is iconic, it is something that we are not super eager to recreate as we stay isolated during this Covid winter.

Overwhelmingly, this has been the reaction to the #LoveDontCostAThingChallenge.

Most of Twitter is just sitting there trying to figure out what exactly is going on with J.Lo and her challenge. We appreciate someone getting people involved and mobilized. We also want to see our people succeed. However, some things need to be thought out a little bit more than this social media challenge.
