  • Summary: Actress/singer J.Lo returns with 12 new tracks, including "Jenny from the Block," featuring guest appearances from Jadakiss and Styles. Lopez is also planning her first-ever tour in support of the album in 2003.

  1. The feel is sexy, stylish, and fun, and there are numerous highlights, all feeling effortless.
  2. Even naysayers will have to serve props to Lopez for the considerable growth she reveals as both a performer and tunesmith.
  3. While no one's likely to confuse anything here with high art, the girl has a way with hooks, even if they're often borrowed.
  4. Predictably packed with hip-hoppy dance numbers and chiming ballads that don't dare push her vocal range, J.Lo vibelessly goes through a series of songs about love, fidelity and how real she is.
  5. There's little sign of obvious hits. [Feb 2003, p.104]
  6. Most of the songs are pitched too high for her register, the production sounds cheap, and love has dulled whatever street edge she might have had.
