Jenny From the Block, sure is sending out a very provocative message in her March, 11, 2014, single, “I Luh Ya Papi (Feat. French Montana). The song was released as the lead single from J-Lo’s eighth studio album, A.K.A. The video features J-Lo living out her fantasy and instead of a video that fully sexualizes women, she sexualizes men, but the song is a tad bit different. The song is very upbeat, and catchy, but the song is all about sex, and it contains many sexual innuendos.
The beginning of the song has the lyrics, “I put it down for a brother like you / Give it to you right in the car, that’s you.” So, she is saying that for a guy like him, she’ll put out and even do it in the car. In the second verse she gives some other references to sex, as well as stating that she has the ‘hour-glass’ body and great legs. The whole chorus is the title of the song, “I luh ya papi.” Now, there’s no hate on her or the writers or anyone that uses the term ‘papi’ or even ‘daddy,’ but it just don’t really make a lot of sense to use that term. Anyways, in the second verse, surprise surprise, she makes more sexual references, but she also says, “You can drop it how you want, I ain’t trying to call Miley.” Now, I don’t know if she’s talking about Miley Cyrus, or someone else, but I’m gonna assume here, and say that she is.
The bridge of the song is where rapper, French Montana comes in. He starts off my talking about how much he loves Miami, which Miami, is being used as an alternate term for a girl. It is now his turn to talk about sex and how he likes it.
While the song has a great pop beat, and a catchy chorus, the song is not that original. It’s been said before that most music these days talk about sex, and this song lives up to that saying.
