J.Lo is the second studio album by American singer Jennifer Lopez. It was released on January 16, 2001, by Epic Records. The album's title refers to the nickname given to her by fans, with Lopez describing it as an homage to her supporters. Drawing from her own experiences, Lopez included more personal songs on this album, which deals with themes of relationships, empowerment and sex. 

 

It is a primarily dance-pop, Latin and R&B album which encompasses Latin-pop, retro and contemporary pop.

 

"J.Lo" debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 the same week as her film "The Wedding Planner" opened at #1 at the domestic box office, making Jennifer Lopez the first artist to have a #1 album and film simultaneously.

How can this be more personal when On The 6 sounded more personal.

For me it's her weakest album. Secretly is one of the best songs from her.

Iconic album, perfect singles and amazing videos. Early 00s J.Lo was the most powerful celebrity, nobody was bigger than her.

I forgot to add that although she didn't go on tour, she did a 2-day concert event (her first) in Puerto Rico called "Let's Get Loud" to promote the album.

 

The concert was later televised as a CBS special, and was released on DVD in 2003. The DVD was certified Gold.

TIMT is way too saccharine for my taste. I still can’t get through it without dozing off :skull:

 

But Love? is her second best album, yes!

Last night I was literally watching AMAs 2001 awards for the first time where J.Lo performed Love Don't Cost A Thing as first opening performance and hyped this album and The Wedding Planner film. Wow, what an era to start! :jonny5:and she ATE that choreography!

What an era this was. From the rollout of LDCAT @ the MTV EMA’s, to her making history with this album and Wedding Planner. She was truly everywhere and such a global force. She did so much worldwide promo that year while still working as an actress. Been a hard working queen from the jump :jonny6:
