CRITIC REVIEWS

80
Billboard
With some hits and misses, “A.K.A.” journeys through some predictable refrains with a handful of prospective triumphs.
60
AllMusic

When the scale tips too heavily toward rhythm -- as it does on "Booty" and "I Luh Ya Papi" -- the productions don't do Lopez many favors, burying her in their thrum.

60
Slant Magazine
Aside from the album's lead single, "I Luh Ya Papi," which is ridiculous in all the right ways, Jenny from the Block seems to have largely forgotten the fun this time around.
60
The Guardian

AKA veers from power balladry to squawking hip-hop to an EDM track that sweetly extols the pleasure of finding the right person long past the first flush of youth. The only problem? There are so many production cooks that the broth is a bit characterless at times.

50
Spin

Much of A.K.A. is still mawkish, midtempo melodrama that does too much to accentuate J. Lo’s tunelessness.

40
Rolling Stone
At her best, J. Lo combines and energizes familiar dance-pop sounds to make music worth getting lost in (in 1999, "Waiting for Tonight"; in 2011, "On the Floor"). On her eighth album, however, she just sounds lost.
30
PopMatters
Jennifer Lopez may have done a Britney and released a strong contender for the worst pop album of the year.
25
Entertainment Weekly
The only song here that even approaches classic J. Lo is the single ”I Luh Ya Papi,” a bubbly sung-spoken jam that finds her lovin’ on backseat hookups and hatin’ on enunciation. Other than that? There’s just not a lot to luh here.
