 Lopez moved to Manhattan, sleeping in the dance studio’s office for the first few months.

Lopez’s first professional job came in 1989 when she spent five months touring Europe with the musical revue show Golden Musicals of Broadway.

She was the only member of the chorus not to have a solo and later characterized it as a pivotal moment where she realized the importance of a “tough skin” in the entertainment business. Lopez began by dancing in music videos and as back up dancer.

Lopez’s most high-profile job as a professional dancer was as a Fly Girl on the sketch comedy television series In Living Color, which starred comedians including Jamie Foxx and Jim Carrey.

 At the New York audition, the show’s choreographer, Rosie Perez, noticed that Lopez had “star quality” and “did not complain, not once” when asked to repeatedly perform the dance routine.

Music Career

Lopez’s debut single, “If You Had My Love”, was released in May 1999, as she began to ready her first album.

 Lopez became the first artist to top the Billboard Hot 100 with a debut single since Britney Spears did so with her single “…Baby One More Time” four months prior.

 Her debut album was named On the 6, to reflect the New York City Subway rail line connecting her home in the Bronx to work in Manhattan.

During production of the album, Lopez was made aware that she received her recording contract on the basis of her looks and an already established name in the entertainment industry, and she wanted to prove she had musical talent.

During the process of recording her second album, Lopez decided to tweak her image as she began to develop into a s!x symbol. She started going by J.Lo, something fans often called her in the years after director Oliver Stone coined the term on the set of the 1997 film U Turn. She subsequently named the album J.Lo. Released on January 23, 2001, it was a commercial success, debuting at number one on the US Billboard 200.
