With "Papi" her second single from LOVE?, Jennifer Lopez will make you dance.
Now, few artists can get dance floors moving like she can but by mixing a propulsive house beat and sultry Latin flavor, Lopez gives the summer its sexiest jam. A quick siren swell morphs into a bombastic tribal build-up as synths snap in and out of the sound. She perfectly captures the club sound even before the verse begins. Lopez’s voice pulsates with a fresh, fiery, and focused energy that captivates listeners hypnotically. Her unique delivery brandishes traditional Latin flare, while simultaneous catering to the night club scene via a massive and majestic hook that'll have hands up in the air and bodies grooving.
Breaking down mid-song, a bass thump and seductive Spanish lines pulsate in tandem before one final crescendo of the track's unforgettable chorus. Songs like "Papi" and the album's first single, "On the Floor", cement Lopez as one of pop’s most forward-thinking luminaries, lighting up airwaves, dance floors, and iPods with a sound that's all her own. She's at the top of the game right now, and "Papi" and "On the Floor" prove it.
You'll move for her and your "Papi" as soon as you hear it. This is everything that modern pop should be. This is Jennifer Lopez at her finest.
