On the Floor Jennifer Lopez
Song Title: On the Floor
Artist: Jennifer Lopez
Date of release: February 8, 2011
Description: ” On the Floor ” is by Jennifer Lopez, the American singer. Written by Kinda “Kee” Hamid, AJ Junior, Teddy Sky, Bilal “The Chef” Hajji, Pitbull, Gonzalo Hermosa, Ulises Hermosa and the song’s producer RedOne who has worked with the likes of Lady Gaga.
” On the Floor ” which features the Cuban-American rapper Pitbull, was released by the label Island Records in 2011 and was taken from Jennifer’s 7th Album called ” Love “.
The song is a dance song with an up-tempo, electro-house feel and is influenced by eurodance, Latin music along with techno. A sample from the 1989 hit single ” Lambada ” by Kaoma the French-Brazilian pop group can clearly be heard on the track.
Music critics liked the song more than the Album it was taken from, for example Mikael Wood from the Los Angeles Times said ” returned Lopez to the upper reaches of the Billboard Hot 100 “, however the album didn’t fare quite so well and Mikael described the Album as unlikely to match the success of the single.
Along with the generally positive reviews from the music critics, it seems the record buyers also liked it. ” On the Floor ” entered the Billboard Hot 100 chart at number 9 and climbed to reach number 3, making it the highest entry point for any single by Jennifer in her career.
The song was released in Canada in February 2011 and entered the Canadian Hot 100 at number 86, from there it climbed to reach number 1, Jennifer’s fourth in the country and her highest charting song for 9 years.
” On the Floor ” was released in the United Kingdom during April 2011 where it entered the UK charts at number 1 and stayed on top for 2 weeks, thus becoming her third number 1 in the country and her 12th top five her single.
The song has become Jennifer’s biggest selling single in the UK as of 2012 with sales of 822,056 copies, making it her most successful release there.
