When she signed up for American Idol, it wasn’t for the good of the future stars of the music industry. It was so she could revive her nearly dead career. Unfortunately for JLo, it’s Steven Tyler that became the breakout new star from this season of American Idol. That hasn’t stopped her from trying to revive her musical career, unfortunately for us. For this week’s WoM, JLo teams up with Pitbull for On The Floor.
When you think “Jennifer Lopez” and “on the floor”… Well, I think we can guess where most male minds go. Add her music into the mix and suddenly it’s not as pretty a picture. Add in Pitbull and you have a catastrophic disaster that has rocketed to the top of the charts. The backing music and beat seem pretty generic for the pop/dance music of 2011. The lyrics don’t really have any rhyme or reason. After all, I don’t know why Pitbull is so concerned about Tonka trucks. And JLo is doing her best to rehab her image with this video. It includes gratuitous product placement for BMW, Swarovski crystals, Crown Royal and plenty more, I’m sure. Even JLo attempting some of her best Shakira moves doesn’t really save this one.
So congrats, Jennifer Lopez. You’ve won the prestigious Worst of Music award for this week.
