Jennifer Lopez has always been Jenny from the block, and the new video for her song "Same Girl" proves she's still on the same grind.

"This was probably the craziest thing I've done in my career of music and movies," Lopez said. “I called my girlfriends and some photographer friends. We just grabbed a camera, jumped on the train, left the city and ran around the Bronx. We found some interesting places that captured the essence of what it was like to live there and made me remember the simplicity of life I used to have there. The rest was real life."

The first half of the video shows an orchestra performing on a rooftop, and Lopez getting hyped up with her girlfriends. In the second half, she casually strolls down the streets of the Bronx as passersby freak out, anxiously snapping pictures with her. J. Lo recruits the pedestrian ensemble for the chorus' chants.

“It’s important to know where you’re from so you can see where you are going," Lopez said. "Your feet always have to be firmly planted on the ground before you can fly."
