Jennifer Lopez’s New Frankenstein-esque Single Starts at Number 22 on iTunes: 10 Songwriters, 2 Samples!


Jennifer Lopez dropped her new single yesterday. It landed with a thud at number 22 on iTunes.

The song, “Can’t Get Enough,” is a Frankenstein like construction was created by TEN songwriters, has at least two samples of songs from the 70s.

Nevertheless, the video is fun, the dancing is good, JLo is very sexy, and her wedding dress points to trouble. The story in the video is that it Jlo’s character is getting married for the third time and all her friends are placing betters on how long it will last. Haha. Lopez is on her fourth marriage in real life. (She likes weddings like Mariah loves Christmas.)

Lopez is no Jennifer Hudson, very voice is a little shrill, but whoever produced this mixed it very well. Do I want to hear it again? No. I can get enough! But in dance clubs it will be a hit.

“Can’t Get Enough” is the first single from Jlo’s “This is Me… Now” album coming next month.
