Enrique Iglesias is one of the all-time great Worst of Music singers. If I gave out lifetime achievement awards, Enrique would be a front-runner to win the first one. With songs like Be With You, Bailamos, Hero and I Like It, it’s a wonder how he’s still allowed to still make music. Well, he’s back again featuring Ludacris with Tonight.
I should note off the top that this is the safe for radio version of the song. The proper version of the song is Tonight (I’m Fucking You). Like Bruno Mars’s song Grenade, this song obviously has nothing to do with the singer’s life. He goes home to Anna Kournikova. What more could he want? At least the inclusion of Ludacris is welcome but Luda is turning up far too often as a featuring artist on the WoM. Anyway, that sighing-ish thing Enrique does isn’t in as full force here as his other songs but it’s still annoying. The music is built just be played in clubs and is only tolerable on some strong drugs. Have I mentioned the gratuitous use of autotune yet? And watching this video, I somehow think that Ben Roethlisberger would approve of Enrique. Just sayin’…
So congrats, Enrique. You’ve won the prestigious Worst of Music award for this week.
Have a better WoM candidate for next week? Drop it in the comments.
