Jennifer Lopez f/ Ja Rule "I'm Real (Murder Remix)" (2001)
"I'm Real," the third single from J. Lo's self-titled sophomore album, wasn't really ringing out when it was first released. It's entirely too long and cloyingly peppy. It wasn't until Ja Rule turned up on the breezy and sedate Murder remix with his trademark gruff sing-rap that the song really took flight. The duo connected again on the "Ain't It Funny" remix. Lopez would milk the formula for her next two albums.
