New American Idol judge and former pop superstar Jennifer Lopez has got some new tunes for us to listen to this fine weekend. J. Lo has recorded a cover of the classic song Venus (Shocking Blue, Bananarama) that will be used in a commercial for the Gillette company (who sell the Venus women’s razor). Additionally, a new song titled On the Floor (featuring Pitbull) has leaked its way to the Internets that gives us a taste of what her new album Love? will sound like. To be honest, both songs give me reasons to be very concerned.
OY! This song is cringe-worthy. I mean, I get that it’s a commercial jingle and not a real single but ugh, it’s bad. It sounds like a really shitty version of Bananarama‘s cover of the original Shocking Blue song. No, J. Lo … just no. Her new song On the Floor (Featuring Pitbull) sounds a bit better, but isn’t the smash hit single that she desperately needs:
I mean … the song is OK but it’s really nothing special. As I understand it, the song was produced by Red One and is set for official debut on Ryan Seacrest‘s radio show this coming week. I’m far from impressed but, well, there’s bound to be at least one hit on J. Lo‘s new album, right? Right? What do YOU think of these songs? Do you like either of them?
