As I predicted, the J-Lo comeback media onslaught is well into full swing. Here’s the third new offering from La Diva Latina in just a week. Once again, Swedish hitmaker RedOne worked his magical fingers and produced another track for Jennifer Lopez. Unlike “Good Hit” and “On The Floor“, this new track isn’t for her upcoming seventh studio album, “Love?“. Instead, it’s for an upcoming ad campaign for Gillette.
Lopez has recorded a remake of Dutch band Shocking Blue’s 1969 hit “Venus” for a new “Gillette Venus” commercial. Most people are more familiar with the cover that Bananarama did in 1986. Jenny doesn’t do a half bad job on this pop classic, but I’m glad its for a commercial and not a track on her upcoming album. According to reports, La Lopez filmed the commercial back in October 2010 under the direction of Sophie Muller.
JENNIFER LOPEZ “VENUS” COVER
It’s not bad, but its way better suited for product pimping than on her comeback CD. You never know though, it might pop up on a b-side or bonus track on a deluxe version of her album if its well received. Check out Jennifer’s cover below.
Is Jennifer worthy to be a goddess on a mountain top? Burning like a silver flame? How many times do you think we’ll see Gillette’s commercial starring Lopez during American Idol this year? I’m saying plenty.
