Inauguration Day was obviously huge for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, but were you aware that Jennifer Lopez made history at the ceremony, too?
How? Well, folks. She got loud. And not just loud in volume, she got loud like it was 1999.
While performing a mashup of “This Land Is Your Land” and “America the Beautiful,” JLo decided to sneak in a snippet of her 1999 hit, “Let’s Get Loud” from her debut studio album, On the 6.
I can’t imagine many people — aside from maybe A-Rod and those in the the inauguration loop — were expecting to hear an original JLo jam at the 46th presidential inauguration, but I recognized the hilarious transition immediately because the song triggered a chaotic memory of a childhood dance recital at which I performed a jazz routine to the very song.
Hearing JLo scream “LET’S GET LOOOOOOOOOOOOUD, cause this land was made for you and me,” was funny live. But reliving the experience and scrolling through people’s live reactions and memes is even better. Trust me.
Seriously, not a fucking soul:
