Jennifer Lopez Music
Jennifer Lopez burst onto the music scene in 1999 with her album “On The 6,” which included the hit song “If You Had My Love.” Released two years later, her sophomore album, “J.Lo,” featured hits “I’m Real” and “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” In all, Lopez has released eight studio albums, including the Spanish-language album “Como Ama Una Mujer.”
More recently, Lopez has been rocking the stage of her “All I Have” Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino. The “Ain’t Your Mama” singer has been playing Las Vegas on the regular for a few years now, though she is set to wrap up her residency deal in September 2018.
Her Las Vegas pay has not been publicly revealed; however, TMZ reported in 2014 that her original contract showed she was supposed to be paid $350,000 per show with a guaranteed total of more than $26.3 million for 72 shows over a one- or two-year period.
Jennifer Lopez Songs
Jennifer Lopez has had 32 songs place on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with four reaching the No. 1 spot: “I’m Real,” “Ain’t It Funny,” “If You Had My Love” and “All I Have.” Although Lopez has not released a new album since 2014’s “A.K.A.,” she has been releasing new singles in 2018, including “Us,” the Spanish-language single “El Anillo” and most recently, “Dinero,” which features DJ Khaled and Cardi B.
Jennifer Lopez Acting Career
Jennifer Lopez got her start as an actress when she was cast as a Fly Girl on the 1990s television series “In Living Color.” The Golden Globe-nominated actress currently stars on the NBC drama “Shades of Blue” as Detective Harlee Santos, though the series will end after the current season, Deadline reported.
She is also an executive producer and judge on “World of Dance,” where dancers compete for a $1 million grand prize. The show is currently in its second season. Jenna Dewan hosts the show, and the judging panel is composed of Lopez, Derek Hough and Ne-Yo. Judging should be second nature for Lopez; she was an “American Idol” judge on and off from 2007 to 2016.

Jennifer Lopez Clothing
Though she’s made headlines for her own daring fashion choices, Jennifer Lopez also has a proven ability to make others look great in clothing. Since 2011, the Jennifer Lopez collection has been part of the Kohl’s portfolio, which includes her ever-popular Jennifer Lopez jeans. All Jennifer Lopez clothing currently sold by the retailer is priced under $65, and accessories are less than $110.
Lopez also previously teamed up with Italian luxury footwear and fashion designer Giuseppe Zanotti to release two capsule collections. The first Giuseppe for Jennifer Lopez collection was released in January 2017. It included a $1,250 bootie and a $1,395 wedge sneaker.
Despite her eventual success in the fashion world, Lopez got off to a rocky start. Her first fashion line, Sweetface, was launched in 2001 and faced criticism for being overpriced and poorly made. It was discontinued in 2009.
Jennifer Lopez Makeup
In April 2018, Lopez launched a 70-piece makeup collection with Inglot. The collection includes lipsticks, eyeshadow, face makeup and nail polish, as well as customizable makeup palettes. Items in the collection price from about $10 to $25.
