We've Been Singing This One J.Lo Lyric Wrong For 15 Years & We Don't Know How To Feel
The song 'I'm Real (Murder Remix)' by Jennifer Lopez featuring Ja Rule was probably the best song of 2001 nay the best song of the early 00's. If that sounds like an inflated proclamation then we encourage you to listen to it once more to rattle your senses.
See? Fkn fire.
Anyway back to the matter at hand, this song has been brought to our attention once more and not just because it rolled through on our *~*2001 WOZ LIT*~* Spotify playlist. No you see one of the lyrics has become a point of contention thanks to this article from Jezabel. At the beginning of the song Ja Rule says, "what's my mutha f*cken name?" like the true gentleman that he is. But what is it that J.Lo responds with? Is it, "are you Ellie?" seemingly searching for her friend Eleanor? NOPE. Does she sing, "are you ready?" hurrying her friend along to get to the club? NOPE.
Hold on to your velour tracksuits folks because life is about to change forever. Jenny from the block actually responds with, "R-U-L-E"!!!!! She's spelling out Ja's name!!! WTF?!!! Have the past 15 years all been but a lie?!!!
Rest easy tonight knowing that everything is where it should be and peace, love and hip hop have been restored.
