“On the 6” (1999) & “Jenny from the Block” (2002)
On September 1, 1850, Jenny Lind, the "Swedish Nightingale," arrived in New York on the strength of her big hit, "Jenny from the Block." Nah, wrong Jenny. Just kidding!

Bronx singing/dancing/acting/marrying sensation Jennifer Lopez had a 1999 debut album titled On the 6 (the number of the Lexington line train). In 2002, she told her fans that, despite her great success, she was still "Jenny from the block."

Chorus:
Don't be fooled by the rocks that I got
I'm still, I'm still Jenny from the block
Used to have a little now I have a lot
No matter where I go I know where I came from
(From the Bronx)
