Jennifer Lopez On the Floor video with Pitbull and RedOne premiered last night during the March 3 episode of “American Idol.” The song made its top ten debut landing at number 9 on on this week's Hot 100 chart.

Jennifer Lopez “On the Floor” video debuted at about 9:50 p.m. last night, right before the elimination results. Host Ryan Seacrest could not resist commenting on Jenny's tight abs.

In the video, Lopez wears a sparkling sheer body suit, a bra and harem pants and formal gold gown. All of the outfits showcase her toned body after having twins. J.Lo collaborates with industry leader Pitbull to really make fans want to get on the dance floor to “On the Floor.”

According to Billboard, “On the Floor” is the lead single off Lopez's April 19 album, “Love.” It is the first top ten song for Jenny from the block since “All I Have” in 2003.

The Jennifer Lopez “On the Floor” video was directed by Taj, choreographed by Frank Gatson, Jr. and stars Pitbull and RedOne rapping on the track.

Lopez told MTV News, “I play one character where she kind of runs this party, acts like she's kind of bored with it, but at the same time is really loving it and loves this underground party dance culture. So I got to be wild and crazy, and at the same time I got to be sexy and sweet too.”

Gatson developed moves to show off Lopez's experience as a dancer. The video is meant to give fans an inside look at the best dance party around.

Director Taj stated about the new track “Originality, being you. This song is about being who you want. It's about letting loose. There's no explanation. This is an underground video, this underground party.”

J.Lo feels good about her work on the song and feels it pays homage to her days as a professional dancer. Jennifer Lopez was one of the famous dancing “Fly Girls” for the Wayans brothers' show, “In Living Color.”

Lopez stated about the track, “The minute RedOne played it for me, I made him play it 20 times in a row, and I just sat there at the board and I kept listening to it and listening to it. Because I really feel like, emotionally, I connected to it, but also because of how much I love to dance and how much that's always been such as big part of who I am since I started.”

Here are the lyrics and video for the exciting premiere of the Jennifer Lopez “On the Floor” video:

“On the Floor” (from Direct Lyrics)

It's a new generation
Of party people

Darling get on the floor
Darling get on the floor

Let me introduce you to my party people
In the club...

[Pitbull]
I’m loose
And everybody knows I get off the train
Baby it’s the truth
I’m like inception I play with your brain
So I don’t sleep I snooze
I don’t play no games so don’t get it confused no
Cos you will lose yeah
Now pump it up
And back it up like a Tonka truck

[Jennifer Lopez]
If you go hard you gotta get on the floor
If you’re a party freak then step on the floor
If your an animal then tear up the floor
Break a sweat on the floor
Yeah we work on the floor
Don’t stop keep it moving
Put your drinks up
Pick your body up and drop it on the floor
Let the rhythm change your world on the floor
You know we’re running sh*t tonight on the floor
Brazil Morocco
London to Ibiza
Straight to LA, New York
Vegas to Africa

[Chorus]
Dance the night away
Live your life ,and stay young on the floor
Dance the night away
Grab somebody drink a little more
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor

Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor

[Verse 2]
I know you got it clap your hands on the floor
And keep on rockin’, rock it up on the floor
If you’re a criminal kill it on the floor
Steal it quick on the floor, on the floor
Don’t stop keep it moving
Put your drinks up
Its getting ill it’s getting sick on the floor
We never quit, we never rest on the floor
If I ain’t wrong we’ll probably die on the floor
Brazil Morocco
London to Ibiza
Straight to LA, New York
Vegas to Africa

[Chorus]
Dance the night away
Live your life, and stay young on the floor
Dance the night way
Grab somebody drink a little more
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor

[Pitbull]
That badonka donk is like a trunk full of bass on an old school Chevy
All I need is some vodka and some… coke
And watch… get donkey konged
… if you’re ready for things to get heavy
I get on the floor and act a fool if you let me
Don’t believe me just vet me
My name ain’t Keath but I see why you Sweat me
L.A. Miami New York
Say no more get on the floor

Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor
Lalalalalalalalalalalalalala
Tonight we gon’ be it on the floor
