What’s the point of being a globally famous pop star if you’re not enjoying all the ridiculously fun excesses and perks that come along with being in such a lucky position? That’s exactly the way in which Jennifer Lopez is living her best life in her new video for “Dinero,” which also features some equally luxurious cameos from the single’s collaborators Cardi B and DJ Khaled. The new Joseph Khan-directed video was shared early Thursday morning, and takes viewers into a world that has only been experienced by the wealthiest 1% until now.
From the first opening scenes, Lopez is surrounded by any and every type of luxury that money can buy at some sun-soaked mansion - which probably belongs to her. Over the three-and-a-half minute video, J-Lo can be seen rolling a diamond-encrusted bowling ball down one of her mansion hallways, running the table on a group of handsome men in a game of strip-poker, casually roasting marshmallows over a burning plate of $100 bills and, oh yeah, enjoying a nice evening bath alongside a unicorn. Aren’t pop music videos just the coolest?
Speaking of diamond-encrusted, Cardi B makes her own stylish entrance into the video about 1:50 minutes in. If you thought the outfit attire of the Royal Wedding was off the charts, just wait until viewers get a glimpse of Cardi and Jenny in their bedtime attire, masks and all. Talk about “Making money move.”
Lopez made her way back into the pop headlines recently, first by turning every head on the MET Gala red carpet, and then again this past weekend when she performed “Dinero” on stage at the Billboard Music Awards. It should come as no surprise to anyone who just watched the single’s new music video to learn that “Jenny From The Block” did indeed wear an actual $100 bill on her fingernails to the show. Get it J!
