Jennifer Lopez Ft. Wisin & Yandel – Follow The Leader

The names in this video don’t need much of an introduction, so let’s keep it simple and acknowledge that dance/pop diva Jennifer Lopez has created another guaranteed crossover hit in this collaboration with reggaeton superstars Wisin & Yandel that is sure to experience lots of play on iTunes, the radio charts, and in the clubs.  The catchy synth melody in the background conjures images of an accordion street player somewhere in Latin America, while the other electronic sounds package the music into a club-ready track that has already been stamped and mailed for Miami.  Each artist’s style is incorporated into the driving beat, one moment providing an energetic pop tempo reminiscent of J Lo. and the next syncopating into a reggaeton-like pattern that is well known to Wisin & Yandel.

The video was filmed by the well-respected director Jessy Terrero in Apaculpo Mexico, and although it starts out a bit slow for me, the intensity quickly rises in a scenic chase across the rooftops and streets of the city.  If you want to be savvy enough to know at least one Latin club song that will be in full rotation for the next few months, then check out the video for “Follow The Leader.”
