A Spanish edition of the album was released on November 24, Lopez worked with several producers on the album, including Rodney JerkinsCory RooneyDan Shea and her boyfriend at the time, rapper and record producer Sean "Puffy" Combs.
Critics greeted Lopez's musical debut with a generally positive response. Lopez's vocal performance received praise for its versatility, described as "seductive" and "sultry" by critics.
Some found the album's material and vocals underwhelming, however. The album was successful on the charts, reaching the top ten in the United States and other countries dispelling preconceptions that it could ruin her career. On the 6 went on to sell nearly three million copies in the United States certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America and over 8 million copies worldwide.
On the 6 produced five singles, most of which were commercially successful. At the time of the album's release several other Latin recording artists including Ricky Martin and Marc Anthony were achieving success in the mainstream music market, considered a Latin "explosion" and "ethnic boom" led by Martin and Lopez. On the 6 ' s success allowed Lopez to evolve into an icon of pop culture in the years after its release. Since her childhood, Lopez' Puerto Rican parents stressed the importance of a good work ethic and the ability to speak English.
They encouraged their three daughters to put on performances at home, singing and dancing in front of each other and their friends so they would stay out of trouble. She auditioned and was cast in My Little Girla low-budget film co-written and directed by Connie Kaiserman. She told her parents, but they told her it was a "really stupid" idea and "no Latinos did that". Her disagreement with them led Lopez to move out of her family home and into a Manhattan apartment.
During this period, Lopez performed in regional productions of several musicals before being hired for the chorus in a musical which toured Europe for five months. She was unhappy with the role, since she was the only member of the chorus not to have a solo.
She got a job on the Japanese show Synchronicity as a dancer, singer and choreographer. Lopez then obtained her first high-profile job as a Fly Girl dancer on the television comedy program In Living Color. She moved to Los Angeles with then-boyfriend David Cruz to film the series, and remained a cast member until when she decided to pursue a full-time acting career. So doing the movie just reminded me of how much I missed singing, dancing, and the like Tommy Mottolathe head of the label, suggested that she sing in English  and she began recording On the 6.
Lopez was aware that she received her recording contract on her looks and reputation, and wanted to prove that she had musical talent. For On the 6Mottola and Lopez met with several producers, but producer and writer Cory Rooney later recalled that when he met Lopez, they "immediately hit it off". He played piano and sang "Talk About Us" for them, Frankie Goes To High Bronski - Various - July 84 - The Mixes Mottola and Lopez liked; she recorded it the next day, and worked closely with Rooney on the rest of the album.
I'm a young singer, you know? A young studio singer. I may have sang all my life, and I may have sang on stage and stuff like that, but it's different to record in the studio. And you need somebody who really can guide you through that. One day, whilst working on On the 6Jennifer Lopez "happened to be" recording at the same recording studio where American recording artist Marc Anthony was recording.
Anthony, who had become intrigued by Lopez after seeing her in Selenacame into her studio and asked her to appear in the music video for his song "No Me Conoces". Lopez recalled the events on her Feelin' So Good video album by stating: "So at that time I called Tommy [Mottola] and I'm like 'Look, so Marc Anthony said he would do a song and I really don't want to do a duet with just anybody, I want to do a duet with him.
So can Nerina* - Rainbow force J.R. Blues (Part II) - Les Texans - Les Thèmes De Vos Feuilletons Télévisés Préférés to sign something, so he has to do a record with me? If I do this video! The two first shot the video and then began working on the song. She then passed the song to Lopez, stating that she would have "more fun with it" and would put "a new spin" on it.
But the music business is so loose, you can come in whenever you want". I grew up here. I was born here, I didn't have a career in Spanish first. I think it [the album] appeals definitely to my generation of people, we grew up in America but had Latin parents or parents of different ethnicity. Although she described herself as bilingual and the record has Latin influences, Lopez chose to sing in English. It has both those influences It still has a pop feel to it, but I definitely wanted to mix the two because I feel that [is] very much who I am, growing up in the Bronx, being of Latin descent".
Lopez sings about feeling so good and declares that "Nothing in this world could turn me around", as Big Pun shouts "Jenny, you da bomb! Lyrically, several soft ballads on the record have Lopez portraying a woman who is heartbroken. The ballad which Lopez didn't want to sound "too Latin" is described as "smoldering". It was also an international success, reaching number one in Australia, New Zealand, Time Out (Chapapote Remix) - Hypnoxock - Acid Return Remixes (File) and other countries; it reached the top ten in over ten countries.
It's just an overwhelming feeling This is a very special thing. We will miss him terribly". Another music video had Lopez "and her girlfriends prep for a night on the town, then dash past the turnstiles of reality Its Not That Serious - Jennifer Lopez - On The 6 enter a subway headed for Manhattan".
The album's title refers to the 6 subway line in New York Citywhich Lopez used to ride to and from work in Manhattan as well as her home in the Bronx during her early career. According to Yahoo! Music"She will be making a grand red-carpet entrance and signing autographs for the crowd expected for the event".

They were charged with criminal possession of a weapon and stolen property. Lopez was soon exonerated; her attorney released a statement that "Jennifer Lopez does not own a firearm nor does she condone the use of firearms", while Combs' publicist said that Lopez "had absolutely, positively nothing to do with this shooting".

On record, the husky-voiced voluptuousness that has Holly Holy - Neil Diamond - Love At The Greek - Recorded Live At The Greek Theatre (Betamax) Lopez's trademark in films like Out of Sight simply vanishes.

Lopez and Anthony noted that they wanted the "Latin invasion" and "hype" to die down so they could be viewed as normal artists and "regular people". Being that you're talking about people, I don't feel that way, really. Yes, I'm Latin. I don't know It didn't bother me in any way. I didn't think of it as a negative thing, but I also didn't think it was fair to do it because it makes it seem like people are a fad—or a culture is a fad.
Six months after the release of On the 6 Lopez had successfully transformed from a film star into a pop star, joining an "elite circle of Its Not That Serious - Jennifer Lopez - On The 6 to venture successfully into the music arena".
Since the release of On the 6Lopez has been widely regarded as a triple-threat performer: the most-influential entertainer of Hispanic descent in the United States and a pop culture icon. But Lopez is going about it in a most agreeable way: with a light heart and even lighter feet.
