With Jennifer Lopez now judging American Idol, it's easy to forget she's still a pop star herself. For her seventh disc, the mom of two, 41, returns to her dance-diva-from-the-block roots. The club candy includes the Top 10 thumper "On the Floor" (there's also a Lopez staple: the Spanish version!), the Latin-laced "Papi" and a hip-hop pairing with Lil Wayne, "I'm Into You." But it's not merely a bootyshaking blowout. She gets downright mushy on the ballad "Until It Beats No More," in which Mrs. Marc Anthony coos, "You tore down every wall in me." And the famed diva points a few fingers at her romantic past on "(What Is) LOVE?" dissing "blind dates" and declaring, "Musicians are the worst." All in all, when it comes to her day job, J. Lo is solidly still in business. (Nuyorican/Island)
