Album: Love?
Artiste: Jennifer Lopez
Label: Island Def Jam Music Group
Genre: POP/ Dance
Release Date: May 3, 2011

About the Album: For many fans of Jennifer Lopez, Love? has been a long time coming. This being the seventh studio album may be her most personal to date, encompassing inspiration from the birth of her twins and her own experiences with love. The highlighted theme throughout the album courses the examination, questioning and discovery of the diverse sides and avenues of love and relationships. It's been a long and twisty road for Love?, having started recording the album in 2009 with an original release date for the project set for January 2010 to coincide with Lopez’s latest film “The Back-up Plan”. However following the lack of success with lead single Louboutins, Lopez and Sony Music Entertainment decided to end their ten year partnership leaving the fate of Love? with Island Def Jam, which boasts an impressive roster of A-list songwriters and producers (such as RedOne and Lady Gaga), as well as guest performers. Here’s a track-by-track rundown:

1. On the Floor (Ft. Pitbull)

This moderately-catchy track, aimed for the dance floor, became J.Lo’s first Top 10 hit in eight years. It’s one of the album’s strongest singles, having a bit of a capricious vibe, containing a sample of Los Kjarkas’ song Llorando Se Fue, which was made popular in the Kaoma single Lambada. Lyrically, it follows the typical ‘get down and boogie’ formula but sound wise, it’s unlike anything on the radio, definitely putting it ahead of the game and screams summer.

2. Good Hit

Lopez pointlessly cuddles with auto-tune for this near-rap song in which she repetitively asks, “Don’t you wish I was your boo?” It seems a bit forced and dull yet further reminding listeners that she brought ghetto fabulousness to Pop.

3. I’m Into You (Ft. Lil Wayne)

Possessing one of the most memorable and infectious hooks on
