Jennifer Lynn Lopez (born July 24, 1969), popularly nicknamed J.Lo, is an American actress, singer, songwriter, record producer, dancer, fashion designer, television producer. She is the richest Hispanic in Hollywood according to the website A Socialite's Life and the most influential Hispanic entertainer in America according to People en Español's list of "100 Most Influential Hispanics", .
Following the success of the re-release of J. Lo, Lopez decided to devote an entire album to the remixing effort, releasing J to tha L-O!: The Remixes, on February 5, 2002. This album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, becoming the first remix album in history to debut at the top on the chart. Featured artists on J to tha L-O!: The Remixes included P. Diddy, Fat Joe, and Nas, and the album included rare dance and hip hop remixes of past singles. It is the third all-time biggest-selling remix album in the world, after Michael Jackson's Blood on the Dance Floor: HIStory in the Mix (1997) and Madonna's You Can Dance (1987). The album has sold 3 million copies.
Lopez is working on her sixth studio album, and fifth English studio album, in which she is working with producers Midi Mafia, Jonathan "J.R." Rotem, and Ryan Tedder. It has been confirmed to be released on October 9, 2007 and that Jonathan "J.R." Rotem is working on some tracks with writing partner Evan "Kidd" Bogart. On March 27, 2007, Lopez appeared on MTV's Total Request Live and stated that the album will be out in September (but now has been confirmed by Yahoo! to be released in October) and Do It Well will be the first single. Lopez played one of the tracks from the new album in Las Vegas in late April. She stated she will finally be going on tour in late 2007 with a mix of her English and Spanish music.
She performed "Hold It, Don't Drop It" and "Do It Well" as a live set for the first time at a show she devised called, "Secret" in New York. She had an open audition for dancers to join her on stage. She also did a medley of her past hits.
2 weeks later the Juntos En Concierto tour with husband Marc Anthony kicked off, and concert goers needed no public statement to determine if Lopez was in fact pregnant. As Lopez took the stage, it became almost obvious that she was with child, as her belly was large and round. Her costumes were designed to be large and flowing, with plenty of room to "grow". Her dancing was also notably toned down in comparison to Lopez's usual over-the-top, stylized dance routines.
On February 14, 2007, Lopez received the Artists for Amnesty International award "in recognition of her work as producer and star of Bordertown, a film exposing the ongoing murders of hundreds of women in the border city of Juárez, Mexico". Nobel Peace Prize winner José Ramos Horta presented the award to Lopez at the Berlin International Film Festival. She also received special recognition and thanks from Norma Andrade, co-founder of Nuestras Hijas de Regreso a Casa A.C. ("May Our Daughters Return Home, Civil Association"), an organization consisting of mothers and families of the murdered women of Juárez.
