I think it's because Shakira is Colombian, belly dances, and speak Spanish. Plus, they probably think Shakira is more likable than J.Lo. However, I think that J.Lo is a much better vocalist.
Personally I think the reason why Shakira is played much more on radio stations is because people prefer her unique singing voice and that gives the songs she sings their own personal style. The same with people like Rihanna, Britney Spears, the tone in their voice is very unique and instantly recognizable. You may not agree on a personal level, but should probably recognize that we as fans instantly recognize Jen's voice because of that... we're fans... anybody pretty much anywhere except those who don't listen to mainstream music could recognize their voices.
I love Jennifer's music, and her singing voice, but her voice isn't that unique, she doesn't have a style that really makes people instantly recognize her, except for when she has her hit songs like 'if you had my love', 'waiting for tonight', 'love don't cost a thing', 'jenny from the block', 'all i have', 'get right', 'on the floor'.... just an observation I made throughout the years that I've been a fan. Not downing Jennifer's voice at all, but those voices are simply unique and instantly recognizable.
