Benny Benassi feat. Kelis, apl.de.ap, & Jean-Baptiste

I sometimes think artists shoot to the stars and fall just a bit short. This song isn't horrible but it's not absolutely amazing either. I think that if you are at Splash Bar or G.A.Y or even Oz in New Orleans and this comes on there are going to be plenty of asses moving but it's really nothing more than a derivative dance song. I enjoy Kelis. Her vocals are smooth and add the feminine touch the song needs. apl.de.ap needs his Beyonce moment like Kelly Rowland is shooting for. Maybe the two of them need to collaborate. I don't know Jean-Baptiste but he doesn't help or hurt the song. Benny Benassi does a mediocre job and maybe can redeem himself in the near future without any trips into space
