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”

JenniferLopezVEVO / YouTube

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”

JenniferLopezVEVO / YouTube

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!

Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía” is Becoming a Global Hit Thanks to TikTok

Kali Uchis’ “Telepatía” is Becoming a Global Hit Thanks to TikTok

Through the power of TikTok, Kali Uchis is taking her song “Telepatía” to the top. The Colombian-American singer is sitting comfortably in the top 10 of Spotify’s Top 200 chart in the U.S. thanks to a TikTok trend.

This isn’t the first time that TikTok brought new fame to songs.

TikTok has proven to be quite the catalyst for today’s top hits. The app assisted in getting Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” to the top of Billboard Hot 100 chart, where it remains. TikTok also reinvigorated interest in Fleetwood Mac’s “Dreams” last year thanks to Doggface’s viral video. Now Uchis is getting her long overdue shine with “Telepatía.”

“Telepatía” is becoming a global hit thanks to the same phenomenon.

At No. 7 on the Spotify U.S. chart, “Telepatía” is the highest-charting Latin song in the country. Bad Bunny’s “Dákiti” with Jhay Cortez is the next closest Latin song at No. 14. “Telepatía” is also making waves across the globe where the song is charting on Spotify’s Viral Charts in 66 countries and in the Top Songs Charts of 32 countries.

There’s also plenty of “Telepatía” memes.

Uchis is turning the viral song’s success into strong sales and streaming. On this week’s Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart, “Telepatía” debuts at No. 10, marking her first top 10 hit on the chart. There are also memes circulating on other social media apps that are contributing to the song’s virality.

“Telepatía” is one of the key cuts on Uchis’ debut Latin album, Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios). It’s the best example of her translating that alternative soul music that she’s known for into Spanish. The song is notably in Spanglish as Uchis sings about keeping a love connection alive from a distance. It’s timely considering this era of social distancing that we’re in during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Uchis is currently nominated for a Grammy Award. She’s up for Best Dance Recording for her feature on Kaytranada’s “10%” song.

Kehlani Dresses as Both Prom King and Queen on Cover of ‘Playboy’, Talks Feeling Comfortable in Both Gender Roles

Kehlani has long been open about the fluid nature of her gender expression. That’s why it’s exciting that the R&B star is experimenting with different facets of her personality on the most recent cover of Playboy.

In a bold move, Kehlani appears on Playboy‘s latest cover dressed in both (traditionally) women and (traditionally) men’s clothing.

And as if one Kehlani isn’t exciting enough, the magazine cover treats us to two versions of this Oakland native. On the left side of the magazine, Kehlani is dressed up as a Prom Queen, complete with a resplendent gown and a tiara. On the cover’s right side, Kehlani is dressed in Prom King drag: her tie undone, her collar open, her crown askew.

She shared the picture to her personal Instagram page with the cheeky caption: “I always wanted to date me.”

In the accompanying interview, Kehlani talks about gender identity and expression, motherhood, and owning her sexuality.

When Kehlani was asked how she defines masculinity and femininity, Kehlani got refreshingly candid. “I’ve discovered that I’ve run from a lot of femininity,” she admitted. “I was way more comfortable in a more masculine space. I feel more masculine when I am in my stillness and I’m grounded in a quiet, contemplative mode.”

She then explained that she feels “most feminine” when she’s “being the mother of my house.” (Kehlani had a baby girl named Adeya Nomi in 2019). She also explained that she “feels her femininity” when she ‘s indulging in self-care, like soaking in a flower-filled bath, or doing a hair mask.

“My femininity makes me feel soft and gentle and tender and careful in a different way than my masculinity makes me feel,” she said. “I’m trying not to let it fall into the gender norms of feminine and masculine, but for me it does a tiny bit. But I also am very fluid in both of those settings.”

Kehlani has always been open about her fluid sexuality and gender identity.

In 2018, she tweeted: “Not bi, not straight. I’m attracted to women, men, REALLY attracted to queer men, non-binary people, intersex people, trans people”.

But of course, haters on the internet accused her of “queer-baiting”–that is, pretending she’s queer to get more LGBT fans and attract attention. In an interview with The Guardian last year, she revealed why the accusation frustrates her.

“I’ve had girlfriends in front of people’s faces, right under their noses, and they weren’t famous and so nobody cared to make it public,” she said. “So they automatically assume that I must like men more than women.”
