So Is J-Lo Leaving Idol?

CHART REFLECTION. Imagine the past week at the Lopez-Anthony house. First there was the accidental nip slip on German television, when J-Lo was in Europe to promote her latest Love? album. Some say she might not return to American Idol next season. Why, you might ask. According to celeb mag In Touch, it’s Marc Anthony urging his wife “to spend more time with him and their children.” Then there’s the rumor saying that $12m isn’t enough compensation to sit at the judge’s table alongside Steven Tyler.

WelcheMusic closely monitors the career of Jennifer Lopez and posed the question if she would ever return to her former glory this March. It turned out to be more than true as she hasn’t been this hot in ages. Currently charting with “I’m Into You,” she does seem to have a bit of a challenge coping without Pitbull. While “On the Floor” managed to climb the top three, the former track peaked at No.72 on the Hot 100. Co-written by Taio Cruz, Lil Wayne and the Norwegian duo StarGate, this is certainly one of the best r’n’b tracks of the year.

We’re certainly looking forward to the next single and hope that Jennifer Lopez indeed returns to American Idol for another season.

Pitbull Already Back with Pause+Rain

CHART REFLECTION. Despite climbing charts worldwide with “Give Me Everything,” an additional two singles have already been lifted off Pitbull’s Planet Pit album. “Pause” was issued in early June to promote the album and debuted at No.73 on the Hot 100. And the week after, “Rain Over Me” was released as the third featuring Marc Anthony!

Pitbull collaborated with Jennifer Lopez for “On the Floor” and this time it’s her hubby who’s the musical partner. Again, RedOne has co-written and produced the track which no doubt will set the charts on fire.

The eminent blog Popcrush gives it a 2/5 star rating say that “This song is true to Pitbull’s style, but it’s also very similar to a lot of other Pitbull songs. If it weren’t for Marc Anthony’s own Latin contribution — in English — we might think we’d heard this one before.”

RedOne+Jennifer Lopez=Lambada

CHART SPOTLIGHT. WelcheMusic has closely followed Jennifer Lopez career and recently reported about her collaboration with the Swedish producer RedOne. The question is – will Lopez get the Lady Gaga effect? Well, she got Pitbull anyway.

Her way back to the record aisles has been quite strenuous. There was this mishap at the Grammys when performing the 2009 single “Louboutins,” and then there was…nothing. The new single “On the Floor” borrows heavily from Kaoma’s 1989 hit “Lambada.” Mix this with Edward Maya’s “Stereo Love,” Nightcrawlers’ “Push the Feeling On” and you’ll have the new Jennifer Lopez.

Expect the track to impact in the US next week as “La Vida Lopez” joins American Idol as the new juror. Don’t expect the same level of enthusiasm as fans provided Britney Spears lately. She’s doing just fine – images from the red carpet shows her in Zuhair Murad at the 2011 Golden Globe Awards where she attended with hubby Marc Anthony. Do you remember that they recorded the duet “No me ames” on her debut album On the 6?

Jennifer Lopez’ last big song to reach the US Top 20 was “Get Right” a No.12 hit in 2005 – it even topped the UK singles chart! Will 2011 be the year when Jennifer Lopez returns to the charts?

UPDATE 03-04: Read everything about Jennifer Lopez comeback to the charts as “On the Floor” races the tallies worldwide.
