Jennifer Lopez is back with a capital B, with new single Dinero, featuring the talents of Cardi B and DJ Khaled.
To celebrate the return of the queen of Pitbull collaborations and generally looking amazing, we thought we'd have a nosey at her biggest singles in the UK, across physical, digital and streaming formats.
The Top 5
Claiming pole position is the most famous of Jennifer's many successful team-ups with her rapping fave Pitbull. Together they reinvented a sample from Kaoma's old hit Lambada with new lyrics and, of course, a rap from Mr Worldwide himself, and did what the original never managed to do – hit Number 1! On The Floor was J-Lo's third chart-topper and a first for Pitbull; it's sold a frankly whopping 924,000 copies and amassed 12.3 million plays to be her best seller AND most streamed smash.
Next up, in silver position, it's the song where it all began. If You Had My Love was Jennifer's big popstar debut, making the Top 10 in the UK in 1999, peaking at Number 4. It was the very first of 17 Top 10 hits for Jen, and its reality TV-inspired video actually predates the UK version of Big Brother, but does look a little like the first series – that's J-Lo's #impact. 370,000 copies sold, it's J-Lo's biggest seller on physical format – Gawd bless the CD single – with 320,000 of those clogging up your CD racks somewhere.
Taking the bronze? It's got horns, it's got hand claps – it's Get Right. Back in 2005, brass instrumentation bops were all the rage, and Jennifer didn't want to miss out, so she unleashed Get Right and went and had her second Number 1 with it! It's sold 260,000 copies and racked up almost nine million streams.
Jennifer's first chart-topper in 2001 was Love Don't Cost A Thing which has sold 244,00 copies and notched up six million streams to be her fourth biggest hit, while rounding off the Top 5 is another collaboration. Jen's 2011 team-up with rapper Lil Wayne, I'm Into You, may have only reached Number 9 – we say 'only', a Top 10 is a Top 10 – but it's sales and streams that count. 271,000 of you clicked 'buy' on this one, and 2.5 million plays make it her fifth biggest.
Realness and humility anthem Jenny From The Block just missed the Top 5, and Waiting For Tonight – its video a chilling reminder of the worldwide fear of the so-called Millennium Bug – is seventh. Ain't It Funny makes the list twice, with the reswizzled version from remix album J To Tha L-O (this really happened) finishing at 8, and the more poppy original down at 16. Two LL Cool J collabs make the cut, 2004's All I Have (10) and the massive banger Control Myself from 2005 (13). Ain't Your Mama may not have set the charts alight, but it's J-Lo's second most streamed track, with 9.7 million plays making it her 14th biggest song.
