Song Usage in Media

"Until It Beats No More" is featured as background music in Jennifer's commercial for the Fiat 500.

The commercial, entitled "My World" depicts Jennifer leaving Manhattan and making her way to The Bronx, her hometown.

She is seen behind the steering wheel of the car, gazing out at the scenery of The Bronx passing by.

A voice-over says the words:

"Here, this is my world. This place inspires me to be tougher, to stay sharper, to think faster. They may be just streets to you but to me, they're a playground."

Controversy arose for the commercial when it was reported that Jennifer didn't return to The Bronx to shoot the commercial.

Instead, she filmed her close-up shots in Los Angeles while a body double was used for the car scenes through The Bronx.

Fiat and Jennifer were slammed for false advertising her return to The Bronx. Fiat released a statement stating:

"Both commercials featuring Jennifer Lopez were indeed filmed in the Bronx as well as outside locations. As you may know, in today's world, people are increasingly mobile and their work takes them to a variety of locations. As a result, we took the opportunity to film wherever Ms. Lopez was working at the time to accommodate her schedule. The commercial tells the story of how the simple elements of our upbringing can help explain who we are, where we're going and serve as a source of inspiration to achieve our goals in life. One does not need to be in a specific location to be inspired or continue to be inspired."
