With past hits including You’ll Be Mine (Party Time!) and Falling In Love (uh-oh!), latin diva Gloria Estefan has never been afraid of looking utterly ridiculous in the name of a catchy tune. So it is with the second single from her unfairly slept-on comeback album Little Miss Havana, which is basically Alexandra Stan’s worldwide smash Mr Saxobeat on HRT, with the inominitable Ms Estefan imperiously declaring “Drama’s on like Susan Lucci, it’s time for hoochie coochie!”.
The video is equally eye-opening, with Gloria presiding over an old-school dance club populated by 50s-style bobbysoxers, male strippers and drag queens (one of whom bears a disturbing resemblance to Nicole Scherzinger).
That music like this still exists, albiet on the very fringes of the mainstream, makes me glad to be alive.
