The Jennifer Lopez Series

It was too much fun looking at the J.Lo songs that marked my childhood and tween years. I am proud of this self-made Puerto Rican powerhouse. Below are the posts of the songs we looked at from Lopez’s career. They are all here, for easy reading and tabs.

“No Me Ames”: Unafraid (looking at eternal love, the Jennifer Lopez-Marc Anthony saga and the trouble when we romanticize things).

“I’m Real”: Cause I’m Real (looking at the nostalgia music can bring, the impact this song had on 11-year-old me, fake people and authenticity).

“Let’s Get Loud” and “Jenny From the Block”: I Know Where I Came From (looking at the shoulders we stand on and honoring where we started).

“Love Don’t Cost a Thing”: Gratis (looking at love languages, presence over presents and marriages where money rules).

“If You Had My Love”: The Standards (looking at relationships, boundaries and the conversations we’d be fools not to have).

“Dance Again”: Again (looking at rebirth after suffering and heartbreak; you will dance again).
