Jennifer Lopez: Better in Spanish?


There was a brief moment when I loved Jennifer Lopez, and that was after seeing her act opposite George Clooney in the stunning and sexy Out of Sight. But other than that, I've never been a big fan of J-Lo's movies, her music, or her somewhat creepy husband, Marc Anthony.

The marriage, however, seems to have been good for Lopez's music — specifically, her new Spanish-language album Como Ama una Mujer, which means "How a Woman Loves." The good folks at AOL Music are now streaming the album in its entirety, so purely out of curiosity, I decided to give it a listen.

My conclusion: Jennifer Lopez is better in Spanish than in English. She drops her silly club-friendly Jenny on the Block persona here in favor of subtle Latin folk-inspired tunes, and her voice is the better for it. It probably doesn't hurt that Anthony served as her musical coach for the album and contributes backing vocals as well. Give it a listen and tell me what you guys think.
