She might just be plain old Jenny from the Block but this doesn’t seem to put off music lovers here. Yes, that’s right – Jennifer Lopez has announced that she’s returning for another performance in the city. The US singer, who played Dubai Media City Amphitheatre last year, will be taking to the stage at Meydan on March 29.
