Now that we have moved our website to our new home at VivaLatinPop.com, we are back in 2018 with new reviews. We are starting out with Fabulosos 90’s newest single, “Pop Power Mix.”
The four members who make up Fab90’s take to singing some of the greatest English-language hits from the 90’s for this little medley. Rene, Luigi, Roy, and Alexa do a good job of singing in a different language. Within this medley, we hear the group cover: Nsync, Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Hanson, Michael Jackson, and others.
I might have named the song a little differently than “Pop Power Mix” just because the song lacked power. It is definitely is a fun medley; though I felt the songs didn’t flow well together very well. Lots of starts and stops with the music that made it feel like snippets instead of one fluid song. It might have been just where the transitions… Nsync’s “Bye Bye Bye”, Backstreets Boy’s “Everybody”, and Shania Twain’s “Man, I Feel Like A Woman” all have a pause in front of them as if they were starting new songs.
I want more “power” in my medleys. Fans want a consistent craze when these types of medleys are live. It is possible I am just missing that because I am not seeing the energy live, I am just getting the sound. Overall, Fab90’s English medley gets kudos for the bringing in new languages. Maybe next up, we can get a little 90’s Brit-Pop, like Garbage and Elastica.
