"I'm Real" is a song by American entertainer Jennifer Lopez from her second album J.Lo. It is an electropop and R&B song. It samples the 1978 song "Firecracker" by Yellow Magic Orchestra.[2] Fellow singer Mariah Carey was going to use this sample for her single "Loverboy", but "I'm Real" was released first.

The song was later released as a remix featuring rapper Ja Rule, called "I'm Real (Murder Remix)". It reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and the top ten in the UK and Canada.

I'm Real (Murder Remix)[change | change source]

"I'm Real (Murder Remix)" is a remix of "I'm Real" featuring rapper Ja Rule. It is featured on the J.Lo album and her first remix album, J to tha L-O!: The Remixes. The song samples "All Night Long" by R&B girl group The Mary Jane Girls and "Mary Jane" by R&B singer Rick James. It is different from the original version because it is slower and has a more hip hop-sounding style. The song also got some bad press with Lopez saying the word "niggas" doing the third verse.
