Thanks for the news... This song was made for Rihanna.. it got leaked in February... Ive actually had it since the leak... and now I find that JLo is again picking up other people's sloppy seconds.... hmm

Sorry to break it to you but actually she makes the song sound really hot. We have both JLo's and Rihanna's versions of the song, and Jens is a lot better. Dont prejudge, just wait till you hear it.

A few other people have it along with us and we have all discussed and pretty much agree that Jen's is much better.

Trust me u will love it.
We actually have all the songs produced and written by him and the dream (songs mentioned in the article above) and they all sound really great. A little different for Jen but still close to what she does.
BTW "Whippin my hair" Is crazy different, better than Ri Ri's

The JLo spot is right, you'll love jen's version.
