“Nada de lo que hagamos ahora es inmoral porque Cupido ya flechó.” ?
After performing the song for the 4th of July Macy’s Fireworks celebration, Jennifer Lopez released “Ni Tú Ni Yo” on Independence Day. The song features Cuban duo Gente De Zona in a salsa-reggaeton mashup. This week, she released the full music video for the song, which has already gone viral, and features the flowing yellow dress she made famous in the cover art for the song. The song has “summer hit” written all over it, hitting #3 on the iTunes Latin chart soon after release.
There are a few curious moments in the video, however. Besides the very obvious product placement — at one point even the Sprint guy (you know, the previous Verizon guy) flashes a grin at J.Lo — it’s Marc Anthony’s role in the video that raises eyebrows. Although Anthony serves as an executive producer on J.Lo’s upcoming Spanish language project, he’s mainly in the video to introduce J.Lo to her love interest in the video. I know, weird. Check out the video above and see if J.Lo being introduced to her new boo, by her ex-boo, doesn’t give you the heebie jeebies. But then again, maybe it’s just art imitating life.
Jennifer Lopez arguably became a household name after she portrayed Selena in the biopic about the iconic Mexican-American singer. Since then, J.Lo has become a musical, acting, and producing force in the entertainment industry. Now, at 50, the Puerto Rican superstar is on a new tour and fans in San Antonio were treated to a special cover when she belted out “Si Una Vez” by Texas legend Selena Quintanilla.
J.Lo really showed up for her San Antonio audience with her “Si Una Vez” song after admitting it was her favorite.
At the beginning of the video, J.Lo asks the audience if they want to hear a little Selena. Like, what kind of question is that to ask a Texas audience? Of course, they want to hear some Selena. After asking the crowd which song would be best she told them that “Si Una Vez” is her favorite and that sent the crowd into a frenzy.
Fans were so excited to learn J.Lo’s favorite Selena song because we all have one.
Finding someone with the same favorite Selena song as you is so amazing. Legit, one of the most telling signs of how long your friendship and relationship will last is the Selena test. Do they know who Selena is? Do they like her music? Do you have the same favorite Selena song? This is crucial
Seeing the woman who brought Selena to the big screen was one of the most touching moments for so many people.
Hearts fluttered. Angels got wings. Moods were lifted. It was a physical moment for so many people who could feel the love from the stage. It was as if Selena was on stage in J.Lo’s body giving us the concert we have been craving.
While all of the concertgoers were melting down, social media people also lost their minds over the cover.
It’s like Thalía taking time during her concert to give the fans a taste of Jenni Rivera. Who wouldn’t want to be there for that moment? It feels like a special connection between the singer and the audience as they give praise and attention to a shared icon.
This is one way to ring in your 50th birthday, J.Lo.
There is one thing everyone knows for sure, J.Lo is a force that cannot be overlooked. She is a strong and powerful singer. A recognizable actor. A successful producer. But, most importantly, she is a Selena fan who gives the Tejano singer the respect and love she deserves.
Watch the full performance below.
Thank you, J.Lo. You know how to make your shows something to remember.
Jennifer Lopez kicked off her “It’s My Party” concert tour in Inglewood over the weekend which has had fans excited for months. The tour will include 36 shows which will take place across Africa, Asia, Europe, and North America. For her first leg of the tour, the singer started in Inglewood and brought a bright little surprise on stage with her for a performance as well.
Lopez’s daughter, 11-year-old Emme Maribel Muñiz joined her mother on stage to perform a duet of “Limitless” which was featured in Lopez’s recent film Second Act. Coincidentally, the song’s title proved that J.Los daughter is a girl with no limits herself.
Together the mother-daughter-duo belted out the lyrics to the single and hit some pretty impressive notes.
Both wore red gowns and their long flowing hair as they made a night of the “It’s My Party Tour.” During her daughter’s take on the duet, Lopez could be seen turning and putting her hand to her chest and then later moving down to her knees to show just how in awe of her daughter she was.
Concert-goers from that night weren’t the only ones to be surprised by the performance.
Stars like Reese Witherspoon, Laverne Cox, and Zoe Saldana all shared their love for Emme’s performance in the comments section of J.Lo’s post.
“We all cried!!” Saldana wrote in response to the performance. Meanwhile Witherspoon enthused “What a voice!”
We have seen lots of Emme, who is now 11-years-old, on her mom’s Instagram.
She looks so much like J.Lo too! She embodies her mom’s fierceness and charm, but we had no idea she was also so talented.
J.Lo often refers to her kids as her little coconuts, but Emme is much more than that.
We have also heard Emme sing a little bit here and there on her mom’s Instagram.
We could never tell, however, how much range she had until now.
Recently, J.Lo posted a video of her busy and glamorous life, per usual, but there was one moment that really stood out.
The video was a compilation that she posted over the weekend that included her rehearsal, wrapping up her new movie “Hustlers” that also stars Cardi B. Then we see Emme walk into the rehearsal room with her mom.
In the video, J.Lo instructed her daughter to sing Alicia Key’s “If I Ain’t Got You” in the original key.
The musical director tells Emme to give her performance some sass and to start pointing as if she means her words. Then Emme takes it home in the most powerful way.
Emme’s voice is truly outstanding. Check it out in the 4-minute mark.
We are so impressed by her natural talent and the fact that she is clearly taking singing lessons as well.
If she sounds this good now we can only imagine she’s going to improve.

Hey J.Lo, can you adopt us, please?!
