"Que Hiciste" Video Review

"Qué Hiciste" (Spanish for "What Have You Done?") is the first single from Jennifer Lopez' first full Spanish-language album Como Ama Una Mujer.

According to Lopez, the song had its initial idea taken off a dream that her husband, Marc Anthony, had.

"Marc woke up and said that he just had the craziest dream," Lopez recalled. When she asked him about the dream, he revealed that it was with Rocío Jurado in a room saying that she had a "song for Jennifer" and that she started to sing a melody.

It was two weeks after the Spanish singer died after a long battle with cancer. "She was a very beautiful, famous singer who sang a million songs with Juan Gabriel and on her own," Lopez explained.

Without any studio equipment nearby to capture the essence of the song before it slipped away from her half-asleep husband's mind, Lopez grabbed the phone, called up the couple's answering machine and told him, "Sing it in here."

But the song, which Anthony claimed Rocio Jurado had told him was called "Qué Hiciste," sat on the machine for a few months before Lopez knew what to do with it. She had already played the bulk of her forthcoming Spanish album, Como Ama Una Mujer, to her record label and considered it mostly finished. "They loved it, they thought it was great," she said. "But I thought there should be one more song."

Later, when Lopez was talking with a girlfriend, she says she finally understood why it felt like something was missing from her album, and that "Qué Hiciste" filled the void.

Lopez then called to Julio Reyes a Spanish writer she was working with to help her with adapting the lyrics – though she speaks Spanish, she wanted to make sure she was expressing everything accurately. "You have to have a total command of the language, so I couldn't write it all myself, you know what I mean?," she said. "I had to really depend on people to express what I was feeling."

So when Lopez sat down with the writer, she explained that "Qué Hiciste" was about a very intense relationship. "A woman is saying to a man: 'What have you done with our relationship? With our life? We had everything and with your own hands, you destroyed our house'...," Lopez explained. "And I said to [him], 'Do you understand what I'm saying?... Do you want me to say it in Spanish?'. He goes, 'No, I understand, I got it,' and it literally took him 15 minutes to write the song."

Lopez said the song started as a ballad, but as they continued to work on it, it turned into "something harder, with a bit more of a rock tinge to it. It's an incredibly intense song," she continued. "It's passionate and a lot of fun, with a killer message. I love it, and I hope other people love it as much as I do." She paused, laughing, "because then I'll be OK."

The video was filmed at Dumont Dunes, California, directed by Michael Haussman. The video starts with Jennifer driving an old car down a dusty highway in the middle of the desert, leaning out of the window singing. She pulls over at what looks like a gas station and enters the bathroom to change clothes. As the chorus kicks in, she is seen dancing in the desert with flames in front and behind her.

The view cuts between this and Jennifer changing into new clothes and dying her hair at the washbasin. She then continues driving, but this time across the desert sand, away from the highway. She stops and gets a can of gasoline out the trunk, then pours it over the car. When the chorus kicks in for a second time, the car explodes behind Jennifer as she walks away. In the following scenes, she is dancing in a change of clothes in the sand, cutting between her back in the car and in the desert with the flames.
