    As featured at the Presidential inauguration among other timeless American standards such as This Land Is Your Land and America the Beautiful. :disco:



    It always annoyed me that they inexplicably passed this over in the UK in favour of the boring Feelin' So Good, but it's clearly one of her best loved songs anyway.

    It's basically a Gloria Estefan hit in all but name, and all the better for it.

    It’s an 11 and the first album remains her best and also one of the best trash pop/r&b albums of the era. :disco:

    Not one of my faves but it is decent. Really don't know why they didn't release it in the UK, it was pretty big elsewhere. Even as fourth single I'd day it would've hit the top ten.

    Well Gloria did write it for her and then covered it herself.

    I'm sure it's very entertaining, for some queens.

    It does have a certain GLO to it.. If On The Floor was her Believe (:eyes:), then this was her Your Disco Needs You, if only because I get the feeling the label thought she was too cool for this Aunty Gloria trash. Little did they know it would become one of her most enduring hooks. It's on the 7 at the very least.

    It's been a wedding/gay bar/karaoke staple here fo ages now and I do enjoy it (You can never deny a Glo BOP) though I never seek it out willingly.

    The Pablo Flores remix on her Remix Album is an 8 though!

    Without wanting to DEMEAN it because I don't actually hate the song, it's as BASIC as BASIC SALSAS come. No wonder Gloria gave it to her as a cast-off considering the BANGERZ she was churning out around that time.

    I find it kind of offensive that she inserted this into her performance, whereas Gags did not interpolate the "no matter gay straight or bi, lesbian transgender life" part of Born This Way into The Star Spangled Banner.

    I've given it a meaningless 7.

    It's objectively GOOD and it should've been a worldwide release, but it doesn't excite me/I don't play it ever. "Waiting for Tonight" feels a lot more LIVELY these days.

    I like this because I always felt like the instrumentation and production was more authentically ‘Latin’ than some of her other attempts at Latino pop (@Pipo to confirm). Same way as sometimes Gloria Estefan would produce straight up pop tunes and sometimes she would stick to her Miami roots. J-Lo doesn’t really have Miami roots but it sounds like she was at least trying on this track.

    J-Lo couldn't speak Spanish when her first album was out, I couldn't see her as a Latin artist back in the day.

    The singles roll out here was similar to Enrique's at the time, they released a double A side with one song in English and a Spanish one.

    If You Had My Love was shoved out here along with No Me Ames, Waiting For Tonight with its Spanish version, and as for the 3rd single we got Let's Get Loud (backed with Feeling So Good) to cater to these lands. At the time it just sounded like your average latino crossover song with perhaps a little more polished production, it only stood out because it was "Jlo" but it wasn't undoubtedly an authentic one, she just happened to have the better videos and more exposure. I think the most immediate examples at the time could have been Enrique's Bailamos/Rhythm Divine and Christina's Falsas Esperanzas, heavily latino influenced but as authentic as Spice Up Your Life.

    She was coming off the back of Selena for fucks sake, anything she did was gonna be huge here :greta:
