You've Been Saying J. Lo's "I'm Real" Intro Wrong All These Years

- Page 1

Alright, so let's take a trip down memory lane to the year 2001.

Times were much simpler back then, but that doesn't mean that it was boring, especially from a pop culture standpoint.

So many things happened that year, including the release of the first Harry Potter film, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, Dreamworks introduced us to Shrek, Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake were the "It" couple, and most importantly Jennifer Lopez a.k.a. Jenny from the Block a.k.a J.Lo, released her second album titled J.Lo.

The album, which included songs that dealt with themes of love, sex, and empowerment, gave us some of the Latina artists's biggest hits, like "Love Don't Cost A Thing" and "I'm Real."

J.Lo recorded a remix version of "I'm Real" featuring rapper Ja Rule, and it was such a huge it.

Even if you were going through your emo phase, and weren't really into pop and hip-hop, you still couldn't help but bop your head a little whenever this song came on the radio.

Today, the song is still just as good, and most of us probably still know every lyric, from beginning to end like it was the summer of '01, or so we thought.

Jezebel published an article a while ago in which the author drew our attention to J.Lo's first line in the song. It turns out, we've all been getting it wrong all these years.
