Still excited for the album and the new single, but this era is a total mess. "A.K.A" was a desaster in many ways, but this era feels so uninspired like she doesn't care for her album anymore. All the delays, the music videos don't fit the songs at all, no promo, random releases which never see the light of day on the radio and half of the album is already on the internet again, as you can listen to a lot of previews of new spanish songs already. Months ago, she posted clips on Instagramm, Facebook, Twitter.... The songs sound dated already, the influence of Marc Anthony is undeniable, but old. There seems to be no plan behind this record at all. I see this coming in October with a week of promo and that's it. If they don't get it out in October, there will be no time left for it in 2017. She has two movies coming up, Vegas, "World of Dance" and "Shades of Blue". They announced this album in 2016 for January 2017. They went back into the studio to re-record songs or record new songs over and over again in 2017. This record screams: "It didn't fit, we had to change things again several times".
For the new single "Amor Amor Amor" i am excited, but it's not the same hype i had for previous records. Not into her spanish music anymore as it sounds a lot like Marc's "Como ama una mujer" in 2007. Hopefully there are some good uptempos on it, but where is the buzz? Nobody knows about this release, "Ni tu ni yo" is non-existing worldwide, even if it is "Gold" in Spain now. Such a performance for a lead single is a desaster and "Amor" has the same vibe and sound like "Adrenalina", but we had that all before.
Like many fans of her i think that a sexy tropical music video with a lot of dancing AND a dancebreak would be SUPERB and could work for her several times. The songs that come to my mind when i see "JLO" are "Ain't if funny", "Forever", "Step into my world", "I'm into you", "I, love" or "So good". These songs have this latin vibe, exotic/tropical sounds which i want from her. I also love her funky side like "Get right" or "Hold it don't drop it", it would be hot to get another funk classic from her in 2018.
