Queen Latifah has a real urge to get her dance on. Her new album, Persona, is a mélange of styles funneled through the sterile house-inspired production of hip hop producers Cool and Dre that is clearly aimed at the dance floor. But this is the most boring, lifeless dance record since Madonna’s Confessions on a Dance Floor. And though the album is only 14 tracks long, it feels much much longer.
