producer: It all started with the statement, "I'm Real," which
meant so much to Jennifer Lopez. [Producer] Troy Oliver came up with an idea
and there was another guy, L.E.S. [producer Leshan Lewis], who suggested using
this little loop from Yellow Magic Orchestra's “Firecracker.” Ironically, we
found out Mariah Carey used the same loop [for her song "Loverboy"].
Then, Jennifer walked into the studio and she heard the track playing, and we
were just about to switch to another song and she goes, "Wow, I love that.
Make me a quick CD of the track and let me go sit in the lounge and listen to
it while you work on this other thing you're gonna work on." About 45
minutes later she called me into the room. She said, "Listen, I think I
wrote the song. I never wrote a song by myself, before so don't laugh."
