In conjunction with her long-awaited album “Love?” dropping tomorrow, Jennifer Lopez debuted the music video for “I’m Into You” on The Today Show. It’s the follow up to her humongous hit, “On The Floor“. Just like it, she’s enlisted a rapper to add some hip-hop edge to the track. Even though Lil Wayne provides sick rhymes for the single, he doesn’t appear in the music video. Instead, she enlists hunky telenovela star and former Man Crush of mine, William Levy to provide added heat to the hot video. Here’s J. Lo explaining why she chose the Cuban sex stick to co-star with her.
“It was funny because over Christmas, I had my whole family at my house, and every day my cousins and my aunts and everybody tuned in to this thing [telenovela] to see this guy … I called my cousins and they were like, ‘It’s William Levy. You’ve got to get William Levy!’”
I have to admit, I like the song more after watching the music video. When I first heard the track, I wasn’t a super fan and thought she was copying Rihanna‘s footsteps by releasing an island-sounding track as her second single. But consider me a convert now. La Lopez traveled to the Mayan pyramids of Chichen Itza to film the scenic clip. Melina Matsoukas directed the pop singer who looks absolutely stunning in every shot. It’s like Madonna’s “Cherish” music video fused with Beyonce’s “Deja Vu” set in a Mayan setting. Watch the clip and you’ll totally agree with my references.
How much did you love that dance breakdown in the middle? So Beyonce, right? What did you think of the music video? Does Jennifer have another hit on her hands? Do you think this video will amass over 145 million views on YouTube like “On The Floor”? Post your thoughts and comments below.
