Enrique Iglesias - "Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)" review

Leave it to  to channel lust into a dance hit all about f-ing. The Spanish singer just has this impossible-to-pinpoint, irresistible charm that excuses his chauvinistic qualities and makes him radio gold.But at least he knows he's a pig, and this is the second song where he implores a lady at a club to forgive his forwardness. His rumored girlfriend Anna Kournikova better watch out, with all these groupies at the clubs Iglesias is going after.

In  he sang, "Girl, please excuse me if I'm coming too strong," and in his current single, the eerily similar, "Tonight," he belts, "Please excuse me, I don't mean to be rude, but tonight I'm fucking you." (In the radio version, he so much more nicely substitutes "loving" for "fucking".) Well, Enrique, since you said "please"...

How exactly does he aim to win the girl over? Ever the gentleman, he sings, "You're so damn pretty, if I had a type, then baby it'd be you. I know you're ready. If I never lied, then baby you'd be the truth." Then he straight-up admits his player qualities, singing, "You know my motivation, given my reputation." Once again, poor Kournikova is getting played!

Ludacris plays wingman to Iglesias--at least, hopefully they're not pursuing the same woman. His rap, surprisingly, is all about sex, not dating. He raps, "Winter n' summertime, when I get you on the springs, I'm a make you fall." Aw, how sweet--he compares their hook-up to the seasons.

Why is it that so many performers are only focused on sex and not on actual relationships when they see pretty girls? And why is it that hooking up with a different girl every night is acceptable to these guys? Iglesias seems to have convinced himself that he can have mattress mambo with any girl he chooses, and that's a scary thought considering there's little courtship involved.

and here are the lyrics:

You

I know you want me
I made it obvious that I want you, too
So, put it on me
Let's remove the space between me and you
Now rock your body (oh-oh)
Damn, I like the way that you move
So, give it to me (oh oh-oh)
'Cause I already know what you wanna do

Here's the situation:
Been to every nation
Nobody's ever made me feel the way that you do
You know my motivation
Given my reputation
Please excuse me 
I don't mean to be rude

But tonight, I'm lovin' you
Oh-oh, you know
That tonight, I'm lovin' you
Oh-oh, you know
That tonight, I'm lovin' you

You're so damn pretty
If I had a type then, baby, it would be you
I know you're ready
If I never lied then, baby, you'd be the truth

Here's the situation:
Been to every nation
Nobody's ever made me feel the way that you do
You know my motivation
Given my reputation
Please excuse me 
I don't mean to be rude

But tonight, I'm lovin' you
Oh-oh, you know
That tonight, I'm lovin' you
Oh-oh, you know
That tonight, I'm lovin' you
Oh-oh, you know
That tonight, I'm lovin' you
Oh-oh, you know

[Ludacris:]
Luda
Tonight I'm gonna do
Everything that I want with you
Everything that you need
Everything that you want I wanna honey
I wanna stunt with you
From the window to the wall
Gotta give you my all
Winter and the summertime
When I get you on the springs
I'ma make you fall
You got that body
That make me wanna get on the boat
Just to see you dance
And I love the way you shake that ass
Turn around and let me see them pants
You stuck with me
I'm stuck with you
Lets find something to do
Please excuse me
I don't mean to be rude

[Enrique:
But tonight, I'm lovin' you
Oh-oh, you know
That tonight, I'm lovin' you
Oh-oh, you know
That tonight, I'm lovin' you
Oh-oh, you know
That tonight, I'm lovin' you
Oh-oh, you know
That tonight, I'm lovin' you
Oh-oh, you know
That tonight, I'm lovin' you
Yeah

J Frank E's status as an in-demand pop producer is rising. He visited the upper reaches of the pop singles chart earlier this year working with Alex Da Kid on "Airplanes" by B.o.B.Now he has two of his own production projects simultaneously on the rise. Here he works with Enrique Iglesias, while he is also the producer behind Chris Brown's hit "Yeah 3X.""Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)" powers along on an intense galloping beat decorated with electronic effects that rivet a listener or dancer's attention.

Enrique Iglesias has made a powerful comeback to mainstream pop this year. Earlier this year "I Like It" became his first top 10 pop hit in the US in nine years. Now it looks like "Tonight (I'm Lovin' You)" will head there as well within a few weeks. For these hits Enrique Iglesias has largely left Latin influences behind. Instead, he has jumped the club dance bandwagon with quality work to become one of the world's top pop stars all over again.
