Jennifer Lopez feat. Pitbull - On The Floor


"It's a new generation of party people", J-Lo autotunes at the start.

But it's the same old story - another song about getting down and 'dirrty' on the dancefloor.  She's clearly capitalising on her American Idol "success" by releasing this banal shite.  Everything about this is terrible: from the airbrushed, contrived sexuality of the video, to that annoying riff that merges the Lambada song with Edward Maya's Stereo LoveThen there's Pitbull's inept rap, referencing Inception, Tonkatrucks and Donkey Kong(?!).  It's got a thumping four-to-the-floor beat that I'm sure will be wrecking havok across dancefloors. But J-Lo should've left her career here and let her ass do the talking.  Or maybe she's (unintentionally) done that already...

And who do we have to thank for this monstrosity? RedOne.  Ugh.
