If you watched “American Idol” tonight you caught the world premiere of Jennifer Lopez’s new music video, “Dance Again“. Correction, you caught a very family-friendly version of it. Producers only showed a short highly-edited version of it. Gone is the orgy scene and Lopez bumping and grinding with her much younger boy toy, Casper Smart. Long-time collaborator Paul Hunter directed the steamy clip.
Hunter has previously worked with Lopez on “Feelin’ So Good“, “My Love Don’t Cost A Thing“, “Papi” and “If You Had My Love“. Speaking of the latter, the dance break segment in “Dance Again” was awfully similar to the one shot in “If You Had My Love”. Has Hunter run out of ideas? That being said, I sorta liked the special effects in the clip. Remember Lionel Richie’s hit, “Dancing On The Ceiling”? Well, certain parts of the clip could’ve been called, “fornicating on the ceiling“. Watch it and you’ll know what I mean.
Once again, J. Lo teams up with RedOne and Pitbull. Last time, the trio collaborated they came up with the megahit “On The Floor“. Will lightning strike twice? Personally, I don’t think so, but I’m willing to give the track a couple more listens. As mentioned before, Lopez casts her new beau in the clip. It’s deja vu all over again. Does this mean, she’ll be walking down the aisle with this one much like she did with Cris Judd and Marc Anthony? I guess only time will tell. In the meantime, watch Jen and Casper fondle each other’s booty while looking like they’ve been glitter bombed by Ke$ha.
What did you think? Does this have the potential to become a summer song of 2012? Will it make you want to “Dance Again” to Jennifer Lopez’s voice? Sound off below.
