Lopez, Jennifer feat Ja Rule : Ain’t It Funny Remix

Easily our worst single of the week...

[a]Jennifer Lopez[/a] is currently celebrating the obscure fact that she’s the first person to take a remix album (the cringeworthily titled ‘J To Tha L-O! The Remixes’) to the top of the American album charts. It must be the power of the J.Lo brand rather than the musical delights contained therein, because this, the lead single, couldn’t be more of a dog if it caught rabies and barked.

Featuring none of the thug-lite charm of the ‘I’m Real’ remix, her last collaboration with [a]Ja Rule[/a], it takes last year’s not-very-good-in-the-first-place single ‘Ain’t It Funny’, throws it out of the window, and replaces it with a criminally lame piece of pop-rap seemingly ‘composed’ on a piano with all the notes broken except two.
