Everyone’s Mad At Jennifer Lopez For Releasing A Dr. Luke-Produced Single
Last week, Jennifer Lopez released a single titled ‘Ain’t Your Mama‘, a Pop record written by Meghan “we-simply-can’t-get-jiggy-with-her-music” Trainor. The reason that the track is making headlines isn’t because of how good/bad it is, it’s because it turns out that Dr. Luke produced it. That’s right, the producer who’s being accused of raping and torturing Kesha (considered a slave in her contract with Luke) is the guy behind J-Lo’s new pro-feminist record. Can’t make this stuff up.
As far as Lopez is concerned, she claims she had no idea who produced the record, which puts the blame (?) on Trainor. The young songwriter explained what happened to Digital Spy:
I texted her the song and she had no idea [that Dr. Luke produced it] – she thought I did it alone by myself at my house, which a lot of people think because I do do that. I sent it to her and said, ‘Do you like the song?’ and she said, ‘I love the song, my kid loves the song – he’s made me play it five times already so I know it’s a hit – when can I cut it?’, so I said immediately, ‘Whenever you want!’
[It’s] not fair on her, not at all… [Epic Records head] L.A. Reid wants me to work with her on this new record because we’ve had so much success…But I felt terrible when Jennifer got all the hate for [working with Dr. Luke], and it’s just all ridiculous. It’s such a big song for her.
All we can say is, in the midst of the ongoing controversy: who the hell thought this was even a good idea?
