It's been 20 years since Jennifer Lopez's first studio album came out. To celebrate the career milestone, the singer-actress took a look back at her career on Saturday, which marked the 20th anniversary of the release of her debut studio album On the 6.
The 49-year-old singer took to Instagram to reflect on how far she's come over the past two decades, by sharing 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.
In the caption, she added, "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."
