Personally, I like it. They updated it and signed on artists who will ensure great sales.
I don’t get the criticism of this effort. I liked the hip hop portion of the song. This is a more contemporary tune with current music stars. That will only help sales.
Anything that is done will be criticized by someone, though.
The only thing that I don’t like about the song is that it highlighted how out of touch I am with the States these days. I didn’t know who half of the artists were. I was amazed at the voices of Jennifer Hudson and Celine Dion.
I wish the endeavor success and I hope that the monies raised go towards helping the right people.
