Sophistication and class may not be the first words that spring to mind when describing J-LO or LL Cool J! BUT BOY! This single and its accompanying video have it by the bucket full!
Frankly I never buy much music, I rather listen to it for free on the radio or MTV. But when I saw the video to 'All I have' I couldn't get enough of it! When the single was in the charts, I would be continually flicking stations on my car radio in order to find the one that that was playing it.
A few weeks ago by chance I hear the ORIGINAL 'All I have' by some artists from 60's or 70's, that's when I realised that J-Lo and LL Cool J's 'All I have' is a cover version of a golden oldie. WHAT A COVER VERSION - IT IS WAY BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL!!!!!!!!
I am not a professional music critic, but the only way I can describe 'All I have' is that it is the embodiment of what I personally believe 'proper' Soul, Jazz, and R&B music is all about - smooth music interlaced with smooth lyrics.
I can't believe I am saying this, but my esteem for J-Lo and LL Cool J have now reached new heights with this single! Like me if you have never listened to or ever bought a J-Lo CD, this would be the one to go for!
