The Definitive Ranking Of J.Lo’s Music Videos

Year after year, Jennifer Lopez continues to show that she’s got staying power. We’re so obsessed with her (for obvious reasons; her talent, the dancing, that BOOTY!), but we’re maybe even more obsessed with her flawless music videos. We know you’ve just been dying for someone to rank them, so here you go:

11. “I’m Gonna Be Alright” Ft. Nas

I cannot even begin to explain how obsessed I was with this music video. I wanted to walk through city streets with an oily glow and have a fan constantly blow in my direction! This is J.Lo at her most J.Lo to me. She’s hood as hell, and she hits that baseball with a STICK. Work it, ma.

10. “Waiting For Tonight”

This music video is like if “The Matrix” had a baby with a tropical island. So many lasers, lots of green and lots of dark space. You’re not really sure what’s going on, but you love it and you’re kind of turned on? It’s all very confusing but also perfect.

9. “Ain’t It Funny” (Alt Version)

A confused J.Lo finds herself in a romantic telenovela that is ENTIRELY SEPIA TONED?!?!? SURE, YES, OKAY, FOREVER. While the plot of the music video has little to do with the song, it’s still great. And all of the abs!

8. “If You Had My Love”

Lots of creepy cyber-stalkery “Mr. Robot” stuff in this music video, because 1999. But like really, how does he hack into J.Lo’s website and get access to cameras that let him watch her dance? Also, can we talk about a baby Adam Rodriguez in this video? PRAISE.

7. “Ain’t It Funny” Ft. Ja Rule

Ahh yes, one of the classic Ja Rule and Jennifer Lopez collaborations. This video was all about bright colors and those bangs. And LOTS of purple eye shadow. If you remember a third voice on that track, you’re absolutely right: it also features a rapper named Cadillac Tah who no one remembers.

6. “All I Have” Ft. LL Cool J

Is it possible to die from loving a music video too much?! Jennifer Lopez is walking down the street in a pink coat with a fur collar, hoop earrings, NO pants, and pigtails. Also… LL Cool J, his abs and lips. Yes.

5. “I’m Glad”

I’m always down for a “Flashdance” tribute. This song isn’t one of J.Lo’s best, but who cares when you’re rocking that amazing curly bob and dancing your freaking heart out and this scene?! No matter what, J.Lo brings it. Always.

4. “On The Floor” Ft. Pitbull

This whole video is very “Hunger Games” status. Pretty sure the films took their art direction from Pitbull and Jennifer Lopez’s video. It’s kind of trippy, but also lots and lots of sparkles. Like a scary circus that somehow works.

3. “Ain’t Your Mama”

J.Lo as a Stepford Wife?! IS THIS HEAVEN. The theatrics of this music video are totally brilliant. But why is J.Lo on a pay phone in the beginning of the video? Very confusing, as if J.Lo ever used a pay phone.

2. “Love Don’t Cost A Thing”

I don’t think it gets much better than J.Lo in braids with a crop top that says “J.Lo” on it dancing with a bunch of men. She is a literal goddess. After watching this video I was ready to sell my first born to her.

1. “Jenny From The Block”

Did you really expect any other video to take the #1 spot? Those cargo pants. Those eyebrows. That cameo from Ben Affleck. May J.Lo always reign as Jenny From The Block!

Mariachi is officially getting the search engine clout it deserves!

Google Doodle’s latest feature celebrates the musical genre of mariachi. As an ode to the anniversary of the week that UNESCO inscribed mariachi on its Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The genre of Regional Mexican music goes back to the 18th century.

Google’s latest Doodle features an animated video of mariachi serenading.

Singing “Cielito Lindo,” which is a song that encaptures Mexican pride, the doodle features a band of mariachi members.

Together they sing the following lyrics”De la Sierra Morena/cielito lindo, vienen bajando/Un par de ojitos negros/cielito lindo, de contrabando/ Ay, ay, ay, ay/Canta y no llores/Porque cantando se alegran/cielito lindo, los corazones.”

The lyrics translate to “From the Sierra Morena/Lovely sweet one, is prancing down/A pair of little black eyes/Lovely sweet one, is sneaking by/ Ay, ay, ay, ay/Sing, don’t cry/Because singing makes rejoice/Lovely sweet one, our hearts.”

For the doodle, the mariachi band wears traditional trajes de charro (charro suits) while strumming the traditional instruments of the genre.

Plucking away at the guitarrón, vihuela, and violin, other members use a trumpet and harp. According to Newsweek, “The tradition of mariachi originated in west-central Mexico around the turn of the 19th century, though its exact origins are murky. The musical genre began as entirely instrumental, made up of the sounds of stringed instruments, before vocals and the trumpet were eventually added.”

No doubt Google’s latest Doodle has won over the hearts of various searchers.

“What a beautiful tribute… thank you!” one user wrote.

“The Google doodle for today is a tribute to mariachis & it’s a little video that plays cielito lindo I am not okay, cielito lindo is my favorite mariachi song, it’s too cute,” another commented while another user wrote “I was so shocked when I clicked on this last night. What a wonderful surprise.”

Sweetly, the doodle really seemed to hit home for so many. “The Google Doodle today nearly made me cry,” one very happy user noted. “It was so unexpected and made me miss home for the first time since I moved.”

Cardi B Claps Back at Haters Who Say She Shouldn’t Have Won Billboard’s ‘Woman of the Year’ Title

Cardi B Claps Back at Haters Who Say She Shouldn’t Have Won Billboard’s ‘Woman of the Year’ Title

Cardi B knows her worth and doesn’t have time for the haters. On Wednesday, Billboard announced that they crowned Cardi B “Woman of the Year”–an honor they bestow annually on a female artist who dominates the pop culture scene. As reference, last year, the award was given to Billie Eilish.

But with the chart-topping, record-smashing success of “WAP,” Billboard had pretty much no other choice but to give the title to none other than our Dominican-Trinidadian Queen, Cardi B, this year.

But not everyone was so happy about. A few bitter critics took to the internet to complain about the usual stuff: Cardi’s contributions to music this year, and her being a polarizing figure in general.

“Cardi B sets women back hundreds years,” wrote one particularly bitter Twitter user. “She objectifies women’s bodies as ‘machines’ made solely for sex. The English-level used is shameful. I wouldn’t want my kids to listen to any of that crap.”

So on Wednesday, Cardi took her Instagram to serve her haters a hefty serving of humble pie.

“Morning y’all, it’s your girl Cardi B,” she greeted her audience, bare-faced, her hair wrapped in a scarf, dressed in a floral robe. “And yes, I am Woman of the Year.” And it just got more hilarious from there.

“And for you crybabies like, ‘But she only got one song!’ Yeah, I got that song, b—h. You know, the one that sold the most? The one that streamed the most? The one that had Republicans crying on Fox News about it. The one that have a song that’s about to be six times platinum in three months. The one that had your grandma popping her p—y on TikTok. Yeah b—h, that one.”

As Cardi continued to spit facts, she then took the opportunity to highlight her political activism this year–a brand of activism that kept her younger fans both entertained and, more importantly, engaged.

“For over a year, I’ve been influencing and using my platform for y’all to vote, not just for when Joe Biden was going against Trump,” she added. “I’ve been informing y’all about y’all’s senators, midterm elections, using my money to meet up with these candidates like Bernie. Flying out, tired after shows. Yeah, that’s me, b—h.”

Never one to take un-founded criticism lying down, she continued her tirade against ill-informed haters. “Even when y’all’s crying like, ‘But she don’t represent us!’ Yes I do, b—h. I represent America,” she paused for emphasis here.

“I wanted a change, and that’s exactly what the f–k I did,” she said. She then concluded the video: “And eat it up. I’m just that b—h. Eat it up with a spoon so y’all can get a mouthful.”

Cardi B never fails to keep us fully entertained. The annual Billboard’s Women in Music event will be held on December 10th. As a side note, Jennifer Lopez will also be receiving Billboard’s Icon Award.
