Jennifer Lopez debuted a sexy new music video for "I Luh Ya Papi" Thursday night on American Idol that features plenty of male models and "objectifies" the men.

The scene opens with a discussion between Lopez and her girlfriends as the three try to decide the video's setting with the director. A waterpark and carnival are two locations the girls reject before the group starts to discuss music videos typical of male artists.

"...if she was a dude, they would seriously have her up in a mansion with all these half-naked girls, or maybe even in a yacht," one of Lopez's friends says.

"Why do men always objectify the women in every single video?" another friend asks. "Why can't we for once objectify the men?"

The conversation leads into a video that begins with Lopez on a bed with "a bunch of naked guys for no reason." In addition to plenty of shirtless men, the video features several throwbacks to Lopez's signature looks. Her On the 6 album art, the music video for "I'm Real," and her 2000 Grammys green Versace dress are all acknowledged in the video.

"I Luh Ya Papi" was released earlier this week as the lead single from Lopez's upcoming eighth studio album.
