Honestly, a little J.Lo never hurt anyone. If you claim to have never jammed out hard to "Jenny From The Block", you're a literal liar. Not to mention the fact that clearly Jennifer has made a Faustian pact with the devil to stop aging because...look at her.
Alright it's settled. We love J.Lo. But her latest move is one we don't love so much.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Kesha's legal battle against Dr Luke and Sony had drawn to an abrupt close. After fighting with the two entities since late 2013, a judge finally dismissed Kesha's case against the controversial producer. Make of that what you will, but why is J. Lo's single...produced by Dr Luke....out literally the next day?
Not to be a hater but the woman who gave us such classics as "Jenny From The Block", "All I Have", and "Get Right" could definitely have WAITED A HOT MINUTE to release "Ain't Your Mama"--a chaotic and underwhelming Dr Luke, Meghan Trainor joint.
We're not saying this is bad, we're just saying it's no "Get Right".
Aside from "Ain't Your Mama" not being Jennifer's best material, we are literally talking about a simple show of solidarity here. While other celebrities are coming out in support of Kesha in her traumatic battle, J Lo is releasing new music in collaboration with the controversial producer who can largely be blamed for stalling a fellow female musicians' career.
sJ.Lo's new single was co-written by Dr. Luke, girl bye— RoRoRoYourBoat (@RoboCop_95) April 8, 2016
I can't support a Meghan-Trainor-penned-Dr.-Luke-produced track, even if it is J.Lo. Sorry.— Ryan Houlihan (@RyanHoulihan) April 8, 2016
Can people stop making music with Dr. Luke so I don't have to boycott their music and I'm talking about you J.Lo!!!!!— tyboo (@blazeoflight) April 8, 2016
Who's on J.Lo's management team & why didn't they have enough common sense to warn her against releasing a Dr. Luke-produced single in 2016?— First Openly Gay Man (@yosoymichael) April 7, 2016
It's not a feminist anthem (which I know is a very popular genre right now) if the man who produced it has had some serious allegations leveled against him in the last year.
Jennifer Lopez was once a twenty something year old trying to make it in the music industry, treading against a wave of not ideal (and most definitely sexist) personal and public circumstances. To show solidarity with a sister who has gone through so much is as easy as not releasing this single at this time. I mean, was Pitbull busy or something?
It just doesn't add up when you consider the timing and the quality of the release. We love you, J, but this was not a good move.
