The 'Hustlers' Movie Soundtrack Will Be Your Favorite New Playlist

Jennifer Lopez's film Hustlers gave the media mogul the biggest domestic box office opening weekend of her career with $33 million. By the time the film’s run was done, it had crossed the $100 million mark, making it her biggest hit since Ice Age: Continental Drift. But the film, which had critics raving, isn't just a story of strippers and the wealthy wall street moguls they conned. It's about women who are doing it for themselves and doing it by dancing. Unsurprisingly, the Hustlers movie soundtrack is fantastic.

Though she’s now known for singing and acting, dancing has always been Lopez's strongest suit. She started out as a fly girl on In Living Color, and her talent on the dance floor is still her biggest seller, even at the age of 50. Even when her pop songs haven't been that strong, her music videos and her moves have carried the day.

Her heyday as a pop princess was during the early to mid-aughts, which, in an ironic twist, is right around the time when the film is set. So the soundtrack doesn't just serve as a backdrop for Lopez to show off that even 30 years into her career, she's still got it. It's also a tribute to an era when she was still dominating the charts, the magazines, and the fashion world. (The film’s greatest meta moment is when her character squeals over buying the same Timberland stiletto heels Lopez wore in her “Jenny From The Block” video.)

That means the only thing missing from the soundtrack is anything by Jennifer Lopez from the "Jenny From the Block" era. But perhaps that would have just been a little too much.

But even though the film might not quite have the nerve to go down a rabbit hole where Jennifer Lopez dances to Jennifer Lopez in her Golden Globe-nominated turn in Hustlers, it does include quite a few hits from the aughts era that will have you partying like it 2009.
