Many artists tour for months or even years before assembling a live DVD. Jennifer Lopez got it right on her first two tries.
In April, Lopez will release a DVD culled from her only full-length concerts to date, both of which took place at Roberto Clemente Stadium in San Juan, Puerto Rico, on September 20 and 21.
While NBC ran an abridged version of her production as a one-hour special on November 20, the DVD will feature her entire 80-minute set, which included the hits “I’m Real” and “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” and a cover of the Selena song “I Could Fall in Love,” a tune J. Lo got to know intimately when she starred as the late Latin pop sensation in the 1997 movie “Selena.”
During the concert, Lopez was flanked by a 10-piece orchestra, a five-person choir and 11 dancers. The show was choreographed by Lopez’ husband, Cris Judd.
Lopez will release a remix album in February that will include her collaborations with Ja Rule on “I’m Real” and “Ain’t It Funny” (see “J. Lo Teams With Ja Rule Again For Remix Disc” ). The LP will also include a Rodney Jerkins remix of “If You Had My Love” and a mix of “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.”
The “I’m Real” remix was the #5 track on the year-end edition of the Billboard Hot 100 (see “Ja Rule Helps J. Lo Deliver Hot Crossover Joints” ).
