New Song: Jennifer Lopez – ‘First Love’

Pop diva Jennifer Lopez teams up with music maestro Max Martin for new single ‘First Love’.

The sun-kissed Summer jam (which is now available on iTunes) is the latest to be lifted from the star’s 10th studio album, which arrives on June 17th.

Interestingly, preceding effort ‘I Luh Ya Papi’ was never sent to radio (despite a solid start on iTunes), yet after one spin of ‘Love’ its clear the cut has been crafted especially for the airwaves.

Take a listen below…

{Please note, current version is pitched-up. We’ll update with lyric video when available}

With a whole year having passed since J.Lo debuted initial lead single ‘Live It Up’, ‘Love’ easily serves as the most commercial effort of the tracks she’s released since then.

A Pop buffet if we’re ever heard one, the track packs all the key components of a mainstream hit – a catchy set of hooks, ample repetition, and a call-and-repeat bridge.

Lyrically, though, the cut leaves much to be desired – especially its chorus which quite literally spells out the obvious (“I wish were my first love, because if you first there’d never have been no second, third or fourth love”. Well, duh.

Still, a solid effort. Whether it’ll translate into a hit will be interesting to see.

Your thoughts?

    The 1st listen was horrid! The 2nd was bad. The 3rd was ok. The 4th was good. The 5th was great. The 6th was AMAZING! Another catchy J.Lo song.

    Sounds pretty good! Ready to hear the real version and hope she does a dope performance on Idol finale.

    Side Note: So relieved this is not “featuring Pitbull”.

  4. Stephy May 1, 2014

    This will be her 100234234 flop just like Mariah. Old woman dont have success in the industry no more… sad

  5. FutureCIARA May 1, 2014

    Who????

    The struggle for another hit though

    • Stephy May 1, 2014

      Thats because she over 40+… You know they dont get hits no moe

  6. H2O May 1, 2014

    cute song

    • Stephy May 1, 2014

      Hmmm… You have been acting real nice lately

  7. RoyalKev May 1, 2014

    @KingB is right, this does take more than 1 listen to appreciate it. Once you “get it”, you’ll love it! I think this song is definitely her 2nd best effort out of all her recent singles!

    They line up like this for me:

    #1 Girls
    #2 First Love
    #3 Live It Up
    #4 Same Girl
    #5 I Luh Ya Papi
