Jennifer Lopez released her tenth studio album, A.K.A.
, this past summer, reaching a significant moment in her discography. The album was preceded by a few promotional singles, but the official lead single was the French Montana-assisted "I Luh Ya Papi". As it seems, the well-known Latina might have just stolen
the song from R&B newcomer, Tinashe.
The rising songstress got everyone talking about her with the release of her debut studio album, Aquarius
. However, things could have ended up a lot different for her. During a recent interview, Tinashe discussed working with Detail and ending up with the original "I Luh Ya Papi", which was intended to be her very own lead single at the time.
"It wasn’t 'Papi' at first, it was 'I Luh You Nigga,' like, I luh ya luh ya luh ya nigga. They switched the swag up a little bit! It was intended for Aquarius and everything. Then Detail was in a session with J. Lo and he played her the track, because you know these producers sometimes, they’re like 'Yo, lemme play you my hot shit!' I guess she obviously really liked it, and she cut her version. One day Detail calls me and is like 'B-T-dubs, J. Lo is singing that song.' I didn’t believe it at first, I thought he was just not trying to give it to me for some reason. I was like 'J. Lo does not want that song, she’s not gonna sing that.' And then it came out. I guess she wanted it."
Tinashe really doesn't hold a grudge though, stating the timing just wasn't right for her to have that song. The songstress is happy that she saw "2 On" working out well as her own hit. After all, it is Jennifer Lopez's song that failed to make any significant impact, isn't it?
