Jennifer Lopez is reminiscing on her career in celebration of a major milestone. Saturday marked the 20th anniversary of her debut studio album, On the 6, and the 49-year-old singer took to Instagram to reflect on how far she's come over the past two decades.
She shared a throwback video of her talking about the 1999 LP and why it was so important to her. "I wanted everybody to know how I felt about it, that this was not something that was a whim for me, that it wasn't something that was a gimmick — that I felt like, 'I'm just going to do it and see what happens,'" she says in the clip.
Jennifer then took a trip down memory in the caption, adding, "Hard to believe it's been 20 years since I released On the 6!!! The girl in this video never had a doubt that this was the place she was supposed to be...so confident and sure and maybe a lil oblivious and even ignorant lol... to all that was ahead." She also thanked her fans for their support before plugging her upcoming It's My Party tour, which will kick off on June 7.
On the 6, which features popular songs such as "Waiting For Tonight" and "Let's Get Loud," was a huge success for the young singer. The single "If You Had My Love" notably shot to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and the album ended up at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 chart.
Now, 20 years later, we know Jennifer as a singer, dancer, actress, and all-around icon!
