Jennifer Lopez takes fans back in time in her latest music for “Goin’ In.” With neon strobe lights, standout choreography and diamond imagery the singer’s video recalls her “Waiting For Tonight” days with an updated wardrobe.
“Tonight feels like we can do anything we like/Tonight feels like the best night of my life,” J.Lo sings at the track’s start while the dance crew from Step Up Revolution shows off some fancy footwork.
In the video Jenny from the Block bares almost all, frequently showing off her abs while dancing. Instead of being covered in diamonds like in “Waiting For Tonight,” J.Lo’s lips are studded in pink diamonds throughout the video.
While the video has elements of striking similarity to a younger Jennifer Lopez, it also channels a few other musicians — namely Lady Gaga in a white leotard and Jessie J’s “Laserlight” video with her constant midriff showing dance features.
“Why Flo Rida? You know, we thought about it and [it] was like, ‘Who should we get? Should we get Big Sean or Flo Rida? All these names come up,” J.Lo said. “I just think that the style of the song really fit [Flo Rida]. It was half-dance, but half kind of hard too, you know, and I just felt like he was the perfect one.”
Meanwhile, Flo Rida had nothing but praises for J.Lo.
“I’m a big fan of J.Lo. Her people reached out to me. It was just an honor to get a call from J.Lo,” Flo Rida said. “[I’m a] big fan of her film work and her musical talent, and we did the collaboration ASAP.”
Currently on the road with Enrique Iglesias, you can expect J.Lo to transport her fancy footwork from “Goin’ In” onto the concert stage. They take their tour to two cities in Florida, Miami and Orlando, on August 31st to September 2, 2012. Tickets and information can be found on Ticketmaster.
