"Hypnotico is a song recorded by Jennifer Lopez for her seventh studio album Love?

The song was originally written by RedOne, Lady Gaga, Aliaune "Akon" Thiam, Claude Kelly and Tami Chynn for her second studio album "Prima Donna" in 2007.

RedOne and Akon flew Gaga and Kelly to Los Angeles to write songs for Tami with "Hypnotico" becoming the first song of several songs they had written together.

The release of "Prima Donna" was cancelled and "Hypnotico" was thought to be a "lost cause" by its writers until 2011 when Jennifer became interested in recording the song while working with RedOne following her move to Island Records.

Jimmy Joker provided production for Jennifer's version of "Hypnotico" while her vocals were produced by Kuk Harrell.

"Hypnotico" is an up-tempo dance song that contains a "chunky beat" and retro-80s synths with an "old-school feel." It received generally mixed reviews from music critics, who cited the song to single-worthy.

Some critics noticed similarities between "Hypnotico" and other Lady Gaga songs, such as "Poker Face."
