One of Jay's strongest suits—and a big reason why he's avoided falling off for over 15 years—is his ability to spot a trend coming and be in front of it before it reaches the masses. So when he noticed the young, fresh and new sound of The Neptunes headed for chart dominance, he quickly tapped the VA-production duo for this feel good smash, complete with a Pharrell hook.

As the century turned, the sound of The Neptunes turned music and “I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)” opened the flood gates for this new wave. This playful and fun ode to excess with multiple sing-songy hooks had everyone in the club, high, singing off-key. The track is also noteworthy as it was Jay's first ever track to reach #1 on the Billboard Hip-Hop/R&B charts, solidifying Jigga as a certified hit maker.
