I can’t help feeling that Enrique Iglesias is lowering himself with this video, an off-the-shelf rhyming clichéd dance track built around being a ‘freak’, with a video that is pretty ironic to be watching on International Women’s Day. Throw in a very familiar Pitbull opening (two introductions and a declaration of “Mr Worldwide”), though he doesn’t speak Spanish to ruin the popular internet meme, and you get a song that is too generic to really set the world alight – though in its defence it’s very danceable and very catchy within the parameters of its reach, and will stick in your head.
I just can’t help the feeling that Iglesias is cheapening himself for this record and it feels like a shameless grab by him for chart success.
