I am not even going to call this a review, because Jennifer Lopez's new single, Dance Again , is so AWFUL it doesn't merit my time analysing it. Instead I'll offer a few suggestions to those who had a hand in its creation: The singer, the producer, and the rapper.
@RedOne, take a break or retire, you chose, because you have been riding this euro-pop sound too long, too hard and it's not getting any better. You got lucky with Gaga, face it, and instead of churning this tripe out, you should try improving on your craft and creating a sustainable, variable, sound. If you don't, you will be das boot, with the rest of this dance trend, in the not too distant future.
@Jeniffer Lopez, I acknowledge that On the Floor was one of your biggest hits of recent years, but to try and replicate it so quickly -it's only just been a little over a year since it came out- just makes you appear desperate and without any artistic, or musical credibility- I know a few of you are sniggering. You're making good money on American Idol so you can afford to take some risks with the music you are putting out! Besides people weren't exactly falling over themselves to buy your last album, despite your massive exposure on TV, so maybe a different sound would capture hearts and wallets. Failing that, STOP WORKING WITH REDONE!!
@PitBull I take no issue with you wanting to collaborate with J.Lo/Jenny-From-The-Block again. You didn't really add anything the first time round, and you seem to have left the same non-impression here, so your presence on even a good song wouldn't have harmed it. But at least think of your career for a second, instead of the money that's being thrown at you, before agreeing to jump on a song with perhaps the gayest chorus I have heard in Lord only knows! I'm not even sure if Kylie would have touched this, God Bless her rainbow coloured soul. Is this part of a scheme to nab a coveted GLAAD award, or get on a Gaga record? If it is, then you are a genius and I retract my criticisms and wish you well on your journey down the yellow brick road.
@Thepersonwhosaidiwasshadingpeoplewithmyphotochoices just check out the one above. Now that is #SHADE
That is all.
Too harsh? Listen to Dance Again below and let me know.
