Nice sound. I honestly would not have guessed in the last year. Based on who I see doing these reality shows I feel it's stars who've been on the downside for awhile and trying to bounce back.

Also, that's a pretty polished well produced video. Which brings me to: They still make videos for songs!!
Where to they show them? Anytime I flip past MTV, VH-1 or BET anything but a video is showing. Some crap reality show or movie is airing.
Yup, I generally hate Pitbull and never much cared for J-Lo's music but actually like that song pretty well (even if I do feel like it's a bit too close to another song I like).

Has YouTube evolved to 1st run now of material? I've always viewed it as 2nd hand viewing.
It's first run for stuff like music videos, these days artists have there own youtube "channels"
Yup.

A lot of people (and companies) put up original material on YouTube. Certainly all of my stuff is original.

Can't tell you what her last hit song was but she's still got it.
At a guess, last summer's On the Floor with Pit Bull.

ETA: for the curious

Whenever I go through my music channels on my Sky box there's often a chart rundown or something where you can see these songs; it probably works differently in the US so I wouldn't know what channels you get, but yes, first port of call now is definitely Youtube. You couldn't get away from On The Floor last year (not that I minded, it's a good song)

It's fairly easy to find the huge songs on there, they seem to be related everywhere and have multiple millions of views.

Also, Kestrel, which song do you think is similar to On The Floor? Because I can think of several off the top of my head, it probably isn't any of the ones I'm thinking of though.

In particular I'm thinking of the from-less-than-six-months-earlier "Stereo Love." In almost all ways it's utterly different but one... riff?... musical phrase?... from it and Get on the Floor's chorus is strikingly similar.

Ah, I love Stereo Love. That's older than you think, it's bordering on two years old now! (actually, might have got bigger in America later, the Romanian hits tend to, so ignore that)

I think that's the first thing I noticed about On The Floor when I first heard it tbh, so that's quite accurate. That riff is lovely. I don't think it directly samples Stereo Love but they're along the same lines.

On The Floor's been quite a trendsetter, a lot of female pop tracks have been rather similar to it since. I'd forgotten about the Stereo Love connection until now.

Here are two of the most blatant examples (and the two I was principally thinking of):


Fairly generic but I do shamefully like it, it's almost a complete pastiche of On The Floor.

And this (I will use any chance I get to show this off):


From Charlotte Perelli's new album (Eurovision winner in 1999 and returned in 2008) featuring Kate Ryan (ESC Belgium 2006), the riff sounds VERY similar to On The Floor, and it's quite a wonderful pop track.

Indeed, there's more original, "first-run" material getting put on YouTube these days than just music videos. For one example, Felicia Day recently launched a channel called Geek and Sundry, to which Wil Wheaton is one of the contributors.

An Inception reference! That movie's really entered pop culture.

I like this commercial...

Hint for the next BOTW (don't answer if you know):

She met her future professional athlete husband when his agent contacted her agent to meet.

Nope. Take another shot and you might hit something.
