Lifted as the lead single to her fourth studio album, “Get Right” is perhaps the brightest gem in Jennifer Lopez’s catalog. Produced by Rich Harrison, the man behind Amerie’s “1 Thing” and Beyoncé’s “Crazy in Love,” “Get Right” is notable for its use of a horn sample from James Brown’s “Soul Power ’74.” Peaking just outside the top 10 at No. 12 on the Hot 100, “Get Right” became J.Lo’s first chart-topper in Britain since 2001’s “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.”
Did You Know? “Get Right” received four nominations at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards: Best Dance Video, Best Direction, Best Choreography, and Best Editing.
Her latest album is collecting more dust in record stores across the country than Milli Vanilli’s Greatest Hits, but that doesn’t stop Jennifer Lopez from making headlines. The American Idol judge, who recently reached a deal to return for a second season, covers the September issue of Vanity Fair where she opens up about her split from Marc Anthony.
The “On The Floor” singer reveals her self-respect and the need to be treated properly contributed to the decision to end her seven-year marriage to
The Goat Herder Anthony.
“It’s not that I didn’t love myself before,” Lopez tells Vanity Fair. “Sometimes we don’t realize that we are compromising ourselves. To understand that a person is not good for you, or that that person is not treating you in the right way, or that he is not doing the right thing for himself – if I stay, then I am not doing the right thing for me.”
“I love myself enough to walk away from that now,” she adds. She goes on to say she’ll always respect her ex as a father and performer. “I will always respect Marc as a singer and performer. He will always be in our lives. He will always hold a special place in my heart as the father of my children.”
