Jennifer Lopez And The Mainstreaming Of Electronica

With the creeping in of electronic music into mainstream pop I’m taking notice of consistent artists making a come-back with this new style of music. I’m mainly focusing on Jennifer Lopez’s new single, On the Floor, featuring Pitbull.

(this is slightly remixed with voice add-ins. Same beat though)

I think it’s phenomenal chorus makes up for the lacking in the rest of the song, when J-Lo attempts to like rap or whatever she is doing. And at one point she does the typical recently cool thing to do and shouts out to Miami and Ibiza. It’s like ‘we get it’ Miami and Ibiza get down. Enough.

I’m glad she decided to collaborate with Pitbull to make a come back. It has been a minute since we have heard from J-Lo musically. And to be honest after I went searching for this song when I realized when she sang the song I was slightly let down. I was hoping for another diamond in the rough singer that most producers are going for. “Stereo Love” was a great hit and no one knows Edward Maya. Which is another point I wanted to make about the song. “On the Floor” is “Stereo Love”’s reflection in the mirror. The two songs are almost identical. I feel like I’m in the Mediterranean chilling with my head inside of an accordion.

However that is not a stab at “On the Floor” being unoriginal. sound familiar?

This is another thing I am noticing with music now. It’s all just older songs with new beats and fresher artists. Look at the Black Eyed Peas. Their last few hits were just songs from the eighties reproduced by Will.I.Am. I’m not dissing this reproduction of songs I’m just bringing light to what most artists are doing.

Either way I like this song. Even if it is a remake and even if it is similar to “Stereo Love”. ENJOY ☺
