These Early 2000 Jams Will Give You Major Nostalgia

From middle school dances to family parties in the early 2000’s, there were a few jams that you knew the entire lyrics and dance moves to. If you weren’t burning CD’s, then you for sure had these songs downloaded onto your iPod.

It all started in the year ?2000? with:

“It Wasn’t Me” by Shaggy

Half the time you couldn’t understand what Shaggy was singing, but you for sure knew the chorus to this song.

And in ?2001? the DJ would play:

“I’m Real” by J.Lo

Everyone knew anything with J.Lo and Ja Rule would be a hit.

“Where The Party At?” by Jagged Edge

This was the weekend anthem.

“La Bomba” by Azul Azul

This was pretty much the Latino version of the “Cha Cha Slide.” And you were probably humiliated when your dad got up to dance this.

?2002? kept it poppin’ with jams like:

“Asereje” by Las Ketchup

A song you just had to know the moves to.

“Hot In Herre” by Nelly

Someone was bound to take off their jacket as soon as this song came on. ?

“Where Is The Love” by The Black Eyed Peas

It was borderline a little cheesy for you, but you couldn’t help move your head to their beats.

In ?2003?, road trip jams consisted of:

“Suga Suga” by Baby Bash feat. Frankie J.

“Holidae Inn” by Chingy feat. Snoop Dogg and Ludacris

And every time you saw a Holiday Inn you’d start singing this song. You couldn’t help it.

And in ??2004?? we had our hips moving to…

“Gasolina” by Daddy Yankee

Premios Juventud 2020 is not going virtual, like most other major events. Instead, the awards show is going to be held in-person but with a virtual audience. Here’s who you can expect to take the stage this year.

The Premios Juventud 2020 is going on as planned, just with a virtual audience.

The awards show is celebrating its 20th year this year and the show is going on. The show is being aired from Miami, one of the worst-hit areas in the country for Covid-19, but the show promises to follow all safety standards based on local health guidelines. Here are some of the people you can expect to perform.

Natanael Cana

Cana will be giving corridos tumbados some massive exposure at the awards show. The genre of music is an exciting mix of corridos with trap and urban influences. The sound is something else and fans are excited to see the genre given some love on the stage.

CNCO

The boy band CNCO has become a beloved addition to Latin music. The group was formed after the first season of “La Banda,” a music competition show looking for the hottest new sound. Safe to say that the show’s judges did a good job putting this group together.

Rafa Pabön

Pabön is a major voice of Conciencia Collective and Black Lives Matter. The musician released a song called “Sine Aire” after the George Floyd protests that brought Black Lives Matter to the forefront of American culture. Conciencia Collective hosts weekly talks with We Are Mitú promoting advocacy in the music industry.

And, of course, host Sebastián Yatra.

Yatra will be joined on stage with Danna Paola to perform their duet “No Bailes Sola.” The awards show will definitely be a nice escape from our collective Covid reality. There might not be any fans at the show but the performers are all ready to give a great show to the virtual audience.

In her latest music video for “Cardigan”, Taylor Swift wore a cream cable-knit sweater that had gray stars on the elbows. Soon after she revealed that she was selling copies of the sweater on her website, fans went crazy. As part of the promotion for her new album “Folklore” Swift has been sending out replicas of the sweater to celebrities like Jennifer Hudson to promote its release. The album launched last Friday and has already sold more than 1.3 million copies worldwide according to Variety.

And while the replica cardigans might be selling fast, Swift made sure to send a very special one to Kobe Bryant’s eldest daughter Natalia.

Swift gave Natalia a replica of the cardigan she wore in the music video.

Instagram

“Thank you SO much @taylorswift,” Natalia wrote in a post to her Instagram story over the weekend with a photo of her wearing the cardigan. “I am OBSESSED with ‘folklore’!!!”

The Bryants have long been supporters of Swift over the years.

Kobe Bryant joined Swift onstage during two of her Staples Center performances. Once for her “1989” tour in 2015 and another time in 2018. Back when the singer went on her “Reputation” tour, she posed alongside the Bryants including (Kobe’s late daughter Gigi) backstage.

“My heart is in pieces hearing the news of this unimaginable tragedy,” Swift wrote in response to the crash that killed Bryant in January. “Kobe meant so much to me and to us all. Sending my prayers, love, and endless condolences to Vanessa and the family and anyone who lost someone on that flight.”
