Soon after In Living Colour, she became a regular back-up dancer for Janet Jackson, touring with her around the world for various concerts. Obviously, though, Jennifer was meant for bigger things.
After almost six years of struggling to make a mark for herself, she burst onto the music scene. Her first album, titled On The 6, peaked amongst the top ten albums of 1999, charting with it the single If You Had My Love, which peaked at number one.
On The 6, which was a reference to the subway line she used to take as a child, also featured possibly her biggest song to date, Waiting For Tonight.
The album was special for another reason, because it featured the song No Me Ames, a collaboration with singer Marc Anthony who would later become her husband.
