"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!” Tinashe says with big rolling laughs. "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."
She knew it wasn't meant to be.
"I wasn’t tripping on it too much. I really roll with the punches. A lot of things happen for a reason. Timing always is perfect, even when you don’t think it is. I clearly wasn’t meant to have that song. Who knows, '2 On' might not have existed if I had it."
Can you imagine Tinashe on that song?
J Lo should have tried stealing more "Aquarius" tracks TBH.
