JENNIFER Lopez is back with her first studio album in two years - correction, her first English album in that time as she went back to her roots and put out a Spanish album, Como Ama una Mujer, this year.

This latest one from J-Lo, Brave, will be released in the UK on October 8 with production credits to Swizz Beatz, Timbaland and Jermaine Dupri amongst others, so you know what to expect.

The new single, Do It Well, is a double A-side with another track, Hold It Don't Drop It, but out of the two I prefer the first.

I was debating about using the words 'summer' and 'anthem' for the new track Hands Up from Out Of Office, but looking out of the window, I think the word 'autumn' would be more apt.

This funky electro house number has carved itself a place in the list of anthems.

Out Of Office is a bit of a mystery.

The band's Myspace page eludes to them having been around for a while under different guises and teasingly says their true identities will follow.

My Mum taught me that if I had nothing nice to say, I should say nothing at all, but I've never done what I was told.

I can sum up Will I Am's track, Got It From My Mama, in one word - drivel.

It is repetitive and monotonous and the video is full of bikini-clad girls(how original).

The backing drone sounds exactly like Fergie. If you're a big Black Eyed Peas fan, you are sure to be disappointed by this. They need to stop doing their own thing and get to work on another album!
