JENNIFER LOPEZ (with Billboard's Leila Cobo)
Billboard’s Leila Cobo joins the show to help trace the utterly unique path Jennifer Lopez blazed through popular culture. Leila and Louie chart Jennifer’s rise as a backup dancer, her star-making turn as Selena Quintanilla-Pérez in 1997’s Selena and her debut album, 1999's On The 6. Then they tackle her cultural saturation after the turn of the millennium and her streak of red-hot rap collaborations that helped define the sound of the 2000s. Finally, Louie and Leila discuss JLo’s forays into Spanish-language music, her Super Bowl performance, her status as one of the most successful Latina performers in the history of American pop and place Jennifer Lopez into the official Pop Pantheon.
