Jennifer Lopez‘s latest jam ‘I Luh Ya Papi’ arrived moments ago on Power 106.
The French Montana assisted cut serves as the official lead single from the diva’s tenth studio album – due later this year.
Having warmed up the masses with a multitude of tracks prior to ‘Papi’, can the Detail produced number be the home run La Lopez has been on the hunt for? You be the judge after the jump…
Sonically, the cut continues the star’s re-embrace of Urban, while positing something new.
From the laidback production to the talk-sung verses, ‘Papi’ oozes swag aplenty.
The track isn’t isn’t without its flaws, however. For, in an era where songs require strong hooks to really stick in the minds of the masses, the song’s chorus sounds like an empty afterthought. Almost as if the track was written around a missing hook, only for the hole to be filled-in with repetitive fodder.
Still, the rest of the song acts as strong scaffolding and if paired with the right video (performance) could drive the track to success.
