It’s a long way from the Bronx to Inglewood, but Jennifer Lopez made the long trek. In a pimped-out yellow convertible lowrider with boy toy Casper Smart driving to boot. The 43-year-old makes a cameo in Becky G’s new music video which samples Lopez’s 2002 hit, “Jenny from the Block.”
Becky G (born Rebbeca Marie Gomez) is Dr. Luke’s protege. The 16-year-old plays homage to her hometown of Inglewoooooooooood, California in her “Becky From The Block” music video. She bouncily gives a “scenic” tour of all her old haunts. I need to book a trip to Inglewood stat ;)
“It was such a dope and fun experience to work with an idol of mine. Jen has always been an inspiration to me so to have her blessing on my remake of “Jenny from the Block” was part of my dream coming true,” Becky G said. “‘Becky from the Block’ is my life story and for her to have listened to it and be in the music video means the world to me. Hanging out with her and sharing a lot of laughs will be something I will never forget.”
Prior to her debut track, Becky G provided guest vocals for “Wish U Were Here” and “Oath” for Aussie Cody Simpson and Brit Cher Lloyd respectively. Take a tour of Inglewood with Becky and J. Lo below.
