Lopez began dating former baseball player Alex Rodriguez in February 2017.[1] Oscar
"Oscarcito" Hernández, who had co-written Lopez's previous Spanish singles "Ni Tú Ni Yo"
and "Amor, Amor, Amor" (both released in 2017), came to her with an idea for a song which he
described as "a little crazy".[2] Lopez was surprised when the song was presented to her, given
how personal it was.[2]Explaining how the song developed, Lopez said: "Somebody wrote it for
me specifically, which I thought was really funny. Not because I'm thinking of doing anything
like this, but because it's a funny thing and I played it for Alex and I was like, 'Are you cool with
this? I think it's kind of funny.' He's like, 'Yeah, I'm totally cool with it.'"[3]

"El Anillo" is a Latin pop[4] song with a Brazilian funk beat,[3] which Lopez had asked the song's
producers to incorporate.[2] It was written by Edgar Barrera, Andrés Castro, Oscar Hernández
and Jesús Herrera. Described as "sexy and provocative" by Jennifer Machin of Billboard, the
song alludes to Lopez's relationship with Alex Rodriguez, with lyrics such as "Me tratas como
una princesa y me das lo que pido. Tu tienes el bate y la fuerza que yo necesito", which in
English translates to "You treat me like a princess and give me what I ask. You have the bat
and the strength I need."[5] Telemundo characterized the song as "an anthem for all the women
out there that have put their time and effort in a relationship, and now all they're waiting for is
that big rock on their finger."[6]

Critical response[edit]
Mike Wass of Idolator described the song as a "bone-rattling floorfiller with the most forward-
thinking production of the era thus far. This is all about the enduring diva's fierce vocals and
the hardest beat to grace a Latin-pop song since 'Mi Gente'."[4] Michael Love Michael, writing
for Paper magazine, praised the track's "sound-the-alarm production" and described Lopez's
delivery as "characteristically fierce".[7]

Chart performance[edit]
For the week ending May 3, 2018, "El Anillo" debuted at number twenty-one in Spain, higher
than the peak positions of her previous Spanish singles, "Ni Tú Ni Yo" and "Amor, Amor,
Amor".[8][9] It later peaked at number nine, becoming her thirteenth top-ten single there,[9] and
was certified Platinum by Productores de Música de España for sales of 40,000 units.[10] In the
United States, the song peaked at number twelve on the Hot Latin Songs chart.[11] On June 25,
2018, it was certified double platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America,
denoting sales of 120,000 units.[12] On the chart dated July 14, 2018, "El Anillo" reached
number one on both the US Latin Airplay and Latin Rhythm Airplaycharts.[13] It rose more than
88% to 16 million in audience impressions during the week ending July 8, 2018,
which Billboard attributed to the release of the remix with Ozuna.[14] This gave Lopez her eighth
number one on the Latin Airplay chart, and third in 2018, following "Amor, Amor, Amor" and
"Se Acabó el Amor".[14] On the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart, it became her fourth number one,
extending her record as the female with the most number ones.[14]

Music video[edit]
The music video "El Anillo" was directed by Santiago Salviche and shot in Los Angeles.[15] In
the clip, Lopez plays a Queen whose affections must be won by a potential suitor played by
Spanish actor Miguel Ángel Silvestre.[16][17] An engagement ring can be seen falling into a dark
puddle in one of the opening shots.[18] In one scene, Lopez is backed by dancers as she
dances provocatively and "writhes around" in water.[19] The dance routine featured in the music
video was choreographed by Kiel Tutin.[20] According to Billboard, the fashion in the video
consists of "sparkly outfits by international designers, fit for a gold-draped queen", complete
with "elaborate crowns and opulent headpieces". Among the designers whose work was
featured in "El Anillo" include Indian couture label Khosla Jani, Laurel Dewitt, Giannina Azar
and Lebanese designer Elie Madi.[15] The singer described its plot as "all these queens from all
over the world who come together because they're having this ceremony where a king has to
fight to even be able to ask this person to marry them (...) So all the queens come together and
they really put him through the ringer."[3] She further added: "It's probably one of my favorite
videos I've ever made. This is something on another level that I really love (...) That whole idea
of women being queens and understanding that and treating [themselves] like that and making
somebody fight for you. That's what the concept of it was. It's like, fight for me and then you
can ask me to marry you. Then, okay, where's my ring?"[16]
After three days, the clip had received over 10 million views.[20] In less than two months
following its release, the video had received 125 million views
on YouTube and Vevo.[13]Kayleigh Roberts of Marie Claire said: "The video is gorgeous on a
grand scale and regal in every way", comparing it to the styles of Game of Thrones and Black
Panther, noting that Lopez gives off "fierce Cersei Lannister vibes in a luxurious throne
room."[21] Chloe Herring of the Miami Herald noted that Lopez "laid her demands on the table"
and "proves she's a Latin goddess worth keeping around" in "El
Anillo".[18] Telemundo compared the video to Beyoncé's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)",
writing: "Think of it as if 'Single Ladies' got medieval, with Latin/Samba beats."[6]

Live performances[edit]
Lopez debuted the single with a performance at the 2018 Billboard Latin Music Awards,
which Billboard said "showcased Lopez's versatile style".[5] Lopez wore a jewel-encrusted
jumpsuit and matching headpiece, backed by dancers and a large lotus flower on stage.[22]

In July 2018, a remix of the song featuring Puerto Rican singer Ozuna was leaked online.[23] It
was serviced to radio stations in the US on July 2, 2018.[14] Billboard wrote that "The remix
offers a saucy reggaetón/trap flavor, giving a different twist to the song".[24]
