Song: Get Right
Artist: Jennifer Lopez ft. Fabolous
Album: Rebirth (2005)
I really don't care how many of you laugh at Jennifer Lopez making an appearance in the Soundtrack of My Life.
G'head, listen to the song.
Then try to walk around all day without that crazy horn sample blaring in your head all day, or without remembering the beat and getting a little extra swagger in your step. If you're in the car, you knock you're going to be head-bobbing to this all day long...
Just like the title of the album, which, technically speaking, this exact track isn't on - the remix was just a single, the original minus Fab was on the album - this track was a renewal of my love of Jennifer Lopez after what felt like an eternity of being sick of her.
For a while there, everything sounded too similar; they were all danceable tracks with a hip hop cameo and while this one is no different, it's different. Youknowwhatimsayin?
This is light years away from "My Love Don't Cost a Thing" and "Jenny from the Block" and that is a very good thing. That song and that whole Bennifer thing nearly killed this woman for me and everyone else.
That would have been a shame because as much as she sucks at being married (so far so good with Marc Anthony), she is one hell of an entertainer and the dance breaks in this video are dynamite. Yeah, I said it... dynamite. Don't pretend you don't like a good dance number. Ain't nothing wrong with it.
Crazy story behind this song that maybe only I find interesting:
Usher originally recorded it as "Ride" with the intention of using it on his 2004 album Confessions, but it didn't make the cut.
Lopez later scooped it, changing very little and had some success with it.
As good as Confessions was, imagine how massive it would have been with this on there too, because you know Usher would have killed it.
Anyway, enjoy the track and you're lying if you don't think it's infectious...
