Jennifer Lopez (Work)

The beauteous Jennifer Lopez broke into showbiz as a dancer on TV's In Living Color and established herself as an actress in Selena and Out of Sight. Now the Bronx-born Puerto Rican sex symbol has added pop singer to her already impressive résumé. With a little help from hit-maker friends like producer Emilio Estefan Jr. and salsa singer Marc Anthony, On the 6 (the title refers to a New York City subway line) offers a seamless blend of hip hop, pop, soul, dance and Latin genres. Though her voice is a bit thin, Lopez has definite flair and musicality. Her talent, combined with the CD's taut, energetic sound, makes On the 6 a ride worth taking.

Bottom Line: She sounds as good as she looks
