SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) _ Now living her own vida loca, Jennifer Lopez has returned to her family’s native Puerto Rico to wow her many fans.

Lopez was on the Caribbean island to promote her new English-language album, ``On the Six,″ which features a duet with Puerto Rican salsa singer Marc Anthony.

The 28-year-old actress-turned-singer planned to autograph copies of her album and meet with fans at a mall in the San Juan suburb of Bayamon during her brief visit.

``We’re expecting a lot of people _ people here are very proud of her,″ said Lourdes Laboy, a promotions manager for Sony Music, which produced the album.

Ricky Martin, another Puerto Rican artist, now trails Lopez’s ``If You Had My Love″ on the Billboard pop singles chart. Martin’s ``Livin’ La Vida Loca″ was previously at No. 1.

``This is the first time I can remember that two Puerto Rican artists have achieved this, first and second place, both male and female categories,″ Laboy said Tuesday. ``In Puerto Rico, that’s really something.″
