Jennifer Lopez – perhaps better known ’round these parts as MOM – has been steadily releasing Spanish singles from her upcoming album for over a year now. So far, we’ve heard the Marc Anthony-assisted “Olvídame y Pega la Vuelta,” “Chegaste” with Roberto Carlos, “Ni Tú Ni Yo” with Gente de Zona and most recently “Amor Amor Amor” with Wisin, which just peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Latin Airplay chart.
But now, four Spanish singles deep, J.LO is finally ready to give us with something a little more universal to work with: “Us“!
Longtime J.LO fans craving some of that “On The Floor” and “Dance Again” magic ought to be thoroughly satisfied: The Poo Bear and Skrillex-produced gem is equal parts glossy and hip-shaking, as the LOVE? diva gets sensual in the dark on the dance floor for what could surely be a spring and/or early summertime dancehall-pop smash — a welcome return to form when compared to the less thrilling foray into dancehall-pop with the 2016 Meghan Trainor-penned “Ain’t Your Mama,” our last English-speaking J.LO single.
“Feelin’ you go on and touch my love/ Throwing it now, here you go, catch up/ Could it be us?/ Could it be us? (Could it be us?),” Jennifer ponders before the intoxicating beat drop comes pounding through the speakers. “Could it be us?” YES MOM!
Seductive crooning. Killer beat drop. Sophisticated dance-pop. This is exactly where Mother J.LO needs to be.
