J-Lo - Brave

Actually who cares? With such droning vocals and crap lyrics like ‘heart-breaks are over-rated, stay together is the new trend’ on synth-disco jam “Stay Together”, it’s no wonder Brave is a commercial flop. After playing the pop game for almost a decade you’d think J-Lo would have learnt a thing or two about what works.

After sitting through this retro water torture you realize that she clearly doesn’t have a clue what's hip on the dance floor these days. The only song worth listening to is “Brave”. It’s very emotive, but up-beat and uplifting as well and is one of those tracks that you could put on repeat for a whole Sunday morning. Other than that the album is a complete waste of time.

-Tiisetso Tlelima


When we hear of a title like Brave we expect something…if not ambitious, then out-of-the-ordinary. Instead J-Lo gives us more of the same – sloppy but danceable love songs. She doesn’t take risks with her voice and there’s no cross-genre experimentation which has you wondering what makes her think she’s so brave.

Gone... I agree with Tiisetso. It's awful. Jenny from the block, it seems you are ON the chopping block this time. Sorry. And WOW ~ Nic and Vincent ~ with grammar and spelling like THAT... Well, let's just say it's no wonder that you enjoy this mindless, innordinate crap.
