Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights

Lead Performer: Various Artists; Producer (group): J Records

You definitely won’t have the time of your life with this soundtrack. The producers try to update and unify the original album’s mix of pop originals and ’50s R&B by focusing on hip-hop-tinged Latin pop. Too bad the participants – from Wyclef Jean to the Black Eyed Peas – bring those two genres together so crassly. Only the terrific Colombian band Aterciopelados rises above the exploitation. There is one advantage over the first ”Dancing” disc, however: Nothing here is sung by Patrick Swayze.
