Before we discuss the actual video, I just wanted to share that Jennifer Lopez’s new music video made history. “Follow The Leader”, a collaboration with Wisin Y Yandel, was the first music clip to have its premiere on Twitter. Whether or not this starts a trend remains to be seen. Maybe the song’s title will prove prophetic if other musical acts do “Follow The Leader” which in this case is J. Lo. Back to the video.
Interestingly enough, I found myself sorta captivated watching it. Lopez channels her inner Zoe Saldana in “Columbiana” (yup I watched that wretched movie) and Parkours all over Acapulco, Mexico. From people’s bedrooms, to apartment complexes to rooftops, Lopez shows off her free running skills. Obviously, all the dangerous stunts weren’t performed by “Jenny From The Block” and instead a body double did all the tricks. That said, the editors did a great job of camouflaging that fact. Watch the video below and see if you can spot her doppleganger. Speaking of camouflage, Lopez gets all tatted up in the clip, sporting a “Lideres” tattoo on her collarbone and dragon-like body art on her back.
I have to admit, I enjoy this new Jennifer Lopez track more than her heavily hyped, “Dance Again“. Technically it’s not her official single, but rather reggaeton duo Wisin & Yandel’s. The Puerto Rican duo have collaborated with 50 Cent, Enrique Iglesias, T-Pain, R. Kelly and Ricky Martin on previous tracks. Undoubtedly, they’ll blow up due to Lopez’s name attached to this single. Deservedly so, if you ask my opinion.
Just in case you were wondering who was doing all those crazy Parkour stunts, voila. Here she is standing beside her body double. Uncanny resemblance, right? I’m sure, new boyfriend Casper Smart gets them confused all the time. LOL. Obviously, I’m joking. I wonder if they had to pad his butt to mimic J. Lo’s signature booty.
