This is how JLo rose to the top…
Between 1991-1993, she got her first high profile regular job as a Fly Girl dance in a TV program In Living Color. In between, she offered support for Janet Jackson as a background dancer, appearing in videos, including That’s The Way Love Goes. JLo made her mark as a triple threat when she played the lead role in the film Selena in 1997, earning her a Golden Globe nomination. In the film, which documented the Tejano legend’s life, career, and death, Jennifer Lopez flexed her vocal and acting abilities while introducing Selena’s legacy to the world.

At the same time, she found success with her movies, including Maid in Manhattan and The Wedding Planner.
