Pop Icons Week, Theme Week

Always remember you will live, you will love and you will dance to Jennifer Lopez's music videos again.

In a time when artists have never been more selective in choosing when to release a music video tied to their latest single, there is one pop superstar that has continued to deliver year after year.

Yes, we are talking about the one and only Jennifer Lopez.

Whether she is balancing motherhood, an acting career or simply dancing her butt off night after night in sold-out arenas, J. Lo has always made it a priority in her career to create eye-catching, unforgettable videos.

With Pop Icons Week upon us at E! News, what better time to recognize her most popular videos? And what better time to argue that Jennifer consistently has some of the best music videos?

Instead of relying on a giant studio with fake backgrounds and props, J. Lo tends to go on location to film her videos at important places.

With a deep appreciation for Miami, the singer has filmed "Love Don't Cost a Thing" and "I Luh Ya Papi"  in the famous city. She also traveled to Mexico for a steamy performance of "I'm Into You."

And for the longest time, fans believed "Jenny From the Block" was filmed entirely in the Bronx. But thanks to an incredible vision, she was able to transform the streets of Los Angeles into her hometown.

Fans also couldn't help but enjoy how Jennifer's music videos somehow, someway always included her significant other at the time.

Casper Smart was featured in "Dance Again" while Cris Judd appeared as a backup-dancer in "Love Don't Cost a Thing."

Puff Daddy recruited his then-girlfriend for "Been Around the World." Marc Anthony was featured in the romantic single "No Me Ames." But perhaps the greatest partner connection was Ben Affleck in "Jenny From the Block."

Whether kissing her backside on a yacht or sharing some steamy scenes at sunset in an empty pool, many couldn't help but feel the heat—and love—in the scenes.

And speaking of poolside behavior, can we talk about how stunning the Billboard Icon Award winner looked in her videos no matter how old she was?

Yes, she certainly showed off her physique alongside Iggy Azalea in "Booty." And yes, she showed some skin in "If You Had My Love." But how many times can you see a photo of a performer and instantly recall the video it's from?

Jennifer in a Juicy Couture sweatsuit? That's "I'm Real." The sparkling jumpsuit admired by so many viewers? We remember that from "On the Floor." That all white ensemble with the perfect matching hat? "Jenny From the Block," of course.

Today, Jennifer is multitasking like no other with her Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, a Kohl's fashion line, acting job on Shades of Blue and much more.

And to think she used to be a backup dancer for Janet Jackson in her "That's The Way Love Goes" music video?  Hard work and talent really does pay off. 

If this would be a perfect world, we'd have more artists like J. Lo killing it at the music video game.
