J.Lo is coming back for more. The actress/singer has been selected as a judge for the 10th season of American Idol and she's simultaneously gearing up for the release of her long-delayed album Love?.
We got two sneak peeks of what Jennifer has in store for us with a preview of her music video "Good Hit" and the full version of her new collaboration with Pitbull.
Check out what new stuff Jenny is bringing to the block below
Good Hit - Video Preview
The energy in the video is infectious. Jennifer seems sassy and engaged in a way she hasn't been for a while. But the leotard, pantsless thing smacks of Beyonce-inspired Sasha Fierceness. And not to be ageist, but why does Jennifer insist on competing against the younger gals with material like this, bragging about how smashing her love below is?
On the Floor feat Pitbull
This is actually the second collaboration for Jenny and Pitbull as the two latin stars joined forces for Jennifer's failed Lola alter ego experiment on last year's "Fresh Out The Oven." They sound much more in sync on this track which puts the two in familiar latin-tinged dancefloor techno.
Some have called this her new "Waiting For Tonight." The main difference being that when "Waiting For Tonight" came out back in 2000, J.Lo wasn't riding an oversaturated trend. That being said, the sound caters to Jenny's strengths and masks her weak vocal abilities. If Enrique Iglesias can ride the europop trend to chart success with his thin voice, then why can't Jenny?
Jennifer Lopez was embarrassingly dropped from Epic Records last year and her music career seemed in imminent danger. But ever the crafty cat, J.Lo pulled off another life for herself, scoring a record deal with Island/Def Jam.
The pop music field is crowded though, and Jennifer doesn't really possess any traits (other than her celebrity) that put her ahead of the current reigning crop. And Paula Abdul tried to relaunch a pop career in an attempt to leverage her Idol profile into something more meaningful, but failed. Will J.Lo succeed where Paula failed?
