My Woman Crush Wednesday (WCW) goes to Jennifer Lopez and her song ‘Do It Well’.
I remember when I was in the 10th grade at Hartsville High School staying with my cousin. We stayed on Bell Avenue near downtown Hartsville which was walking distance from everything.
I remember this song mostly from walking to Vick’s Barbershop on the corner of Sixth Street and Sumter Street. I would go down Eight Street, then turn on Sumter Street to get to the barber shop. Some people will ask why I didn’t take Bell Avenue down then cut through the little cotton factory field because it was shorter. The reason I did not take that route was because there were dogs on the other side of Bell Avenue.
I would always try to strut in the middle of the road like Jennifer Lopez did in the beginning of the video. When she would sing the chorus I would do a hand motion at the “No” part.
After I would leave the barbershop with my fresh hair cut that is when I got into real performance mode. I would strut down Sumter Street with the music blasting and the wind blowing through my scalp.
One might have mistaken me for a bald Tyra Banks for my fabulous catwalk down the road. I did want to be a model around that time.
