*Jennifer Lopez made sure the video for her new single “I Luh Ya Papi” was full of scantily clad men…to make a point.
The clip begins with J. Lo and two of her girls meeting with a label rep to go over concepts for the video. The rep suggests several ideas — shooting at a zoo, water park, or a carnival — that the ladies immediately laugh off. Eventually, of the friends ponders, “Why do men always objectify the women in every single video? Why can’t we, for once, objectify the men?”
That leads to the giggling ladies riffing on a few scenarios pulled straight out of the typical rap video, but with a little role reversal. This time Lopez and her crew play the dominant figures, surrounded by half naked papis.
There’s the standard scene in a mansion, where a few sleeping half-naked men are scattered across the room. Outside the mansion, the guys are washing down cars (and themselves) with a bucket of soapy water and, of course, let’s not forget the yacht scene.
French Montana, who raps on the track, is the lone male in the video who is fully clothed.
