Album: Stars Dance
Selena is cute and all, but whoever talked her into attempting a cover of this dancehall classic should be relieved of their duties. Does she even know who Buju Banton is? She was born in 1992, the year his first albums were released.
Her attempt at patois is not even laughable. It's a travesty. Even as Buju Banton sits in a prison cell on trumped-up federal coke-trafficking charges, the real unjustice is this misguided recording. We can only hope that the royalties help with his legal defense fund. Ram-pa-pa-pam-pam. —Rob Kenner
