“On The Floor” Is NOT A New Single – More like leftovers!

Thursday, June 24th, 2004

Thanks to David for this news submission!

J. Lo’s New Single Isn’t Her New Single
‘(Out) On the Floor’ is actually a years-old outtake.
by Jennifer Vineyard

Jennifer Lopez is back on the radio with an old song masquerading as a new single. “(Out) On the Floor” has been making the rounds on the Internet as well as the airwaves, with fans speculating that it’s the first taste from the singer’s forthcoming album due this fall. The singer’s label rep, however, says that the tune is not an official release and won’t be on the new record.

The dance song with a beat sampled from Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam’s 1984 breakthrough hit “I Wonder If I Take You Home” is more poppy than much of J. Lo’s recent work, and describes the mind-clearing benefits of getting lost on the dance floor in a good beat. Lyrics include, “I step into another world/ As soon as I start to dance/ Out on the floor/ It’s always been the only place/ When I look to escape/ Baby, you can do the same/ Let your troubles go.”

“(Out) On the Floor” started getting spins last week on R&B and hip-hop stations, including KQBT in Austin, Texas, KXJM in Portland, Oregon, WGBT in Greensboro, North Carolina, WWKC in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, WKHT in Knoxville, Tennessee, and KPRR in El Paso, Texas. “This was something that was leaked last week,” said Jason Kidd, program director at KQBT, which reported playing the song 51 times between June 17 and 23. “Only a few stations in the country have it. I was told that we had it before the label.”

Lopez’s label rep, Epic Records publicist Michele Schweitzer, said that that track was left over from an old session “three albums ago” (evidently J. Lo’s 1999 debut, On the 6; the song’s lyrics mention the 6-train), and was never intended for release. “It’s not a new song, it’s not going on the new album, it’s nothing,” Schweitzer said. “It’s a rough mix. It’s not even mastered.”

As soon as Epic realized that the song was in rotation, Schweitzer said, the label asked radio stations to pull the song from their playlists. But not every station got such a call, and it remains on the air in some places. “They have not said anything to me,” Kidd said. “I am still [playing it occasionally] here and there.”

There’s no release date yet for Lopez’s next album, which she continues to work on in Los Angeles while shooting her next movie, “Monster-In-Law”.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I thought this was a weak single to introduce a new album anyway. At least one good thing came from this – we have an album confirmation! Even radio stations that JLo.net contacted reported this as a new single! This also explains why not many radio stations were picking up the song – which I thought was fishy. It was nice hearing something new though for a fanbase that’s starved for new material 🙂

“American Darlings” Shooting Delayed

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2004

Jennifer Lopez was set to start shooting the film “American Darlings” this upcoming September, however it has now been delayed due to having no script yet. This news arrives in time to fuel rumors of Lopez’s pregnacy even more – to which reports of are still being denied.

Is Jennifer Ditching Movies?

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2004

Sources close to Lopez have said so and she has apparently refused to attend the premiere for “Shall We Dance?” – which if true, would certainly not place her in a good light. Richard Gere, also in the movie, was shocked by her unenthusiasm toward the project.

“It was no secret that Jennifer and Richard didn’t get on but they found a professional balance to get them through. But Richard isn’t impressed that she’s ruled herself out of the premiere and doesn’t think it’s the right impression to give the public or media. Her people aren’t worried as she has so many strings to her bow – but sense she wants to move away from films after her run of flops. She could find solace in music.”

Radio Request Section

Tuesday, June 22nd, 2004

Sneak preview of the new area here. Only a few states have been added, but more will be soon.


Another station started playing the song:
KSXY – Santa Rosa, CA

It’s growing at a very slow pace…

Radio Request and Other Newsbits

Monday, June 21st, 2004

With the release of “On The Floor” now, it’s a perfect time to utilize the Radio Request link to start requesting the song! We want a high debut for this song on the Billboard Hot 100! I’ll be updating it soon, and if any corrections or additions need to be made, contact us! We welcome any reader contributions!


In other news, Lopez is still not confirming her marriage to Marc Anthony. Reports of her hiring Marc’s manager, the infamous Tommy Mottola, are being denied – perhaps not to link her and Marc. I don’t know why they are still not confirming the marriage when it’s obvious they have gotten married.

We also have a new rip of the song here. This one is smaller in size than the previous one and doesn’t end quite as abruptly. This one is 112kbps, while the other is 192kbps which is overkill for a radio stream. Even 112kbps is more than enough.

Update: “On The Floor” Confirmations

Saturday, June 19th, 2004

We’ve had at least 1 person confirm hearing this new Jennifer Lopez single. If you have heard it as well, leave a comment with your location and the radio station you heard it on.

Edit: I know for a fact that Q102 Philadelphia is playing this song. The song is 3 minutes, 4 seconds long. If somebody can get a recording and send it to JLo.net, that would be great.

Also, the song is either called “On The Floor” or “Out On The Floor”.

Possible New Jennifer Lopez Single?

Saturday, June 19th, 2004

Thanks to Jon for this news submission:

“There is a song by Jennifer that is showing up on Media Base, which is a company that tracks the spins and audience impressions of songs. It also tells you what radio stations are playing what songs. The song is called “On The Floor”. Do you know if this is her new single?”

JLo.net is currently trying to verify this and looking into it. If this is indeed a new song, it sounds like a hot track just from the title! Keep checking back with JLo.net to stay updated!

Ben Affleck Horrified At Wedding

Saturday, June 19th, 2004

Ben Affleck is reportedly very shocked that Lopez had recently gotten married, according to friends. He has not said much about the wedding, but is supposedly devastated.

“At first, Ben was shocked, sort of bowled over, like he’d been run over by a truck. He couldn’t believe it – only five months after the split. It’s like pouring salt in the wound.”
