After her era-defining debut 'If You Had My Love' peaked at the number one spot in 1999, Bronx native Jenny would go on to score countless platinum-selling albums and number one hit singles.

A dazzling highlight from her debut album, 'If You Had My Love' is widely considered one of Jen's greatest R&B songs, if not one of her best overall. Fun fact: it was almost recorded by Michael Jackson. He loved the song, but thought it would be better suited to a female singer.
'Let's Get Loud'
Jennifer Lopez - Let's Get Loud
Originally written and recorded by Gloria Estefan, this sassy salsa song was later passed on to Lopez and became one of her defining hits. Another Grammy nomination in the bag, no less.

‘I Luh Ya Papi'

The song's great, sure, but it's the visuals for 'I Luh Ya Papa' that really catapult it into the top 20. Jennifer turns the tables on the age-old 'video vixen' mentality, spending the majority of the video surrounded by a bevy of shirtless men,

Jen, Cardi and Khaled want cash and they want it now. The hit-making trio fired up a huge summer sensation with their Latin-inspired moneymaking anthem.
