Jennifer Lopez’s ‘I Luh Ya Papi’ Could’ve Been Tinashe’s First Single

Earlier this week, Tinashe celebrated the release of her debut album, Aquarius, by doing a mini-media blitz. During a stop at the Fader, the R&B singer said that her first single almost wasn’t the insanely catchy DJ Mustard production “2 On.”

As it turns out, Tinashe initially planned to release what would become Jennifer Lopez’s song “I Luh Ya Papi” as her own track. In her own words:

“It wasn’t “Papi” at first, it was “I Luh You Nigga,” like, I luh ya luh ya luh ya nigga,” Tinashe tells Fader. “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!”
