Sorry, Biebs... there's no teen pop star with more swag than Becky G right now.

Eleven years after Jennifer Lopez topped the charts with her single "Jenny From the Block," the fierce, up-and-coming rapper has given a new spin to this early 2000s classic with her own remake, "Becky From the Block."

You may have heard of this 16-year-old, who started off covering Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Otis" and Ke$ha's "Die Young" on YouTube. In August 2012 she was featured on Cody Simpson's "Wish U Were Here" and the following October she worked with "The X Factor" star Cher Lloyd on her single, "Oath."

Watch the full music video above.

In her latest cover, "Becky From the Block" sheds some light on Becky G's home life and upbringing in Inglewood, California. Rocking colorful jean shorts and a bright orange beanie, Becky gives us a tour of her neighborhood, introducing us to her friends and even making a pit stop at the local convenience store.

And keep your eyes peeled at the end of the video for when a very familiar face (cough Jennifer Lopez) rolls by to make a memorable -- and stylish -- appearance.

"It was such a dope and fun experience to work with an idol of mine. Jen has always been an inspiration to me so to have her blessing on my remake of ‘Jenny From the Block’ was part of my dream coming true,” Becky said.
