2001 Jennifer Lopez: Love Don't Cost A Thing

Actress, singer, record producer, dancer, television personality, fashion designer, arse on legs and all round Renaissance woman, Jennifer Lopez's first UK number one is a poppy, R&B concoction that's keen to show off its urban, homegirl credentials. That's the idea anyway, but what we in fact get is a brittle as glass production from Ric Wake that freezes any heart in treble and a main theme that borrows a bit too heavily from Cyndi Lauper's 'She Bop'. Lopez herself is not without talent and she acquits herself as well as can be expected, but passion here is on a very low flame, making 'Love Don't Cost A Thing' a cold draught that clangs with its own emptiness and ultimately reeks of vanity project, albeit one with a large chunk of money thrown at it. Nice abs mind.
