A newly single Jennifer Lopez took to Twitter over the weekend to give fans a taste of her new music video for her Latin-tinged track “Papi.” The video was shot in Los Angeles and is being directed by Paul Hunter.
Aceshowbiz.com reported that J.Lo was spotted getting a ride on the shoulders of a male co-star before breaking out into a choreographed dance. She was wearing a cream-colored cropped top and matching shorts for the shoot.
Lopez tweeted a photo of a car on fire with the message, “#omg yesterday got a ‘lil hectic #papi #staytuned.” She also tweeted a video tease from the clip, which shows a group of men involved in some kind of riot. The footage also includes a man on a motorcycle jumping over a row of cars. “It was out of control yesterday!!!!! #imexcited @papi,” Lopez added.
Hunter and Lopez have worked together several times in the past. This is the fourth video he’s directed for the “American Idol” judge, who recently announced she’ll be returning to the show next season. Their past videos include “If You Had My Love,” “Feelin’ So Good” and “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” He’s also shot videos for Ke$ha, Maroon 5, Justin Timberlake, Mariah Carey, Eminem and Janet Jackson, to name a few.
