At the American Music Awards on Monday night (Oct. 9), Jennifer Lopez gave a soaring and impactful live debut of her new song “Limitless,” from her upcoming film Second Act — she was introduced by co-star Vanessa Hudgens.
It opened with a voiceover that said “The only thing stopping you is you,” and a poem from writer Jasmin Kaur on the screen that read:
so that one day
a hundred years from now
another sister will not have to
dry her tears wondering where
in history she lost her voice.
Lopez, decked out in diamond covered heels, a matching jumpsuit and menswear-inspired blazer (and performing with a diamond encrusted mic and stand) proceeded to deliver the empowering track with lyrics like, “Nobody opened my doors/I am a woman, so give me what I’m asking for.”
But nothing rang more true than when she repeatedly sang the line “I am here to stay” — she sure is.
