Jennifer Lopez and Ja Rule are a renowned hitmaking duo, from “I’m Real” in 2001 to “Ain’t It Funny” the following year. But there are rumors lurking that vocals from Ashanti -- who also scored a Billboard Hot 100 leader (“Foolish”) with Ja Rule -- got in the mix for Lopez’s No. 1 hit from 2001.
The singer-rapper got real with Andy Cohen on Sunday night’s Watch What Happens Live show about how “I’m Real” went down. During the aftershow, a guest caller from Louisiana asked Ja Rule, “Is it true that Ashanti sung J.Lo’s vocals in the beginning of her career?”’
“No, that’s not true,” he immediately responded.
