OMG I still can’t believe this….I’m Real w/ J.Lo and JaRule is STILL one of my top five favorite songs. Come to find out we have all been singing the first line wrong all this time…well at least I know I have.
Jia Tolentino a writer for Jezebel wrote this new article and it blew my mind. Jia writes ” Were you at my house, last Friday night, when all of a sudden one of your girlfriends out of nowhere set down her large rosé jug and said, “OK, can I tell everyone that I just figured out what J. Lo is saying at the beginning of that Ja Rule song?”
And then everyone was like, “What are you talking about?” and then that girlfriend said, “So this whole time I thought she was saying Are you Ellie,like Is your name Ellie, like Hello, would you happen to be that woman named Ellie that I know from around the way?”
Then you laughed because that’s a crazy thing to think and then another one of your friends said, “Wait, I thought that was what J. Lo was saying? What is she saying??” and then someone else said, “Yeah me too….. what is it..”
Come to find out J.Lo is really spelling R-U-L-E and NOT saying Are you Ellie. Once you say it out loud it makes total sense and it BLEW MY MIND!!
