American Idol‘s resident diva Jennifer Lopez is certainly no stranger to pairing up with rappers. In the past she’s collaborated with such hip hop names as Ja Rule, Fat Joe and LL Cool J, while Pitbull features on her current hit “On The Floor.” (And, lest we forget, once upon a time J.Lo had a rather high-profile relationship with Dirty Money chief Diddy.) Now, for new jam “I’m Into You,” Jenny From The Block has enlisted Interview subject Lil Wayne for a few rhymes.
“I’m Into You” is part of a campaign on Lopez’s Facebook, wherein if you “like” the song, it will be unlocked early on iTunes before the release of Love? Oh, J.Lo—why must you make them beg?
“I’m Into you like you never knew, I’m fallin’ for you, baby, I need a parachute,” Weezy raps in the intro the jam. Meanwhile, atop a rat-a-tat beat and bed of synths, Lopez sings, “When I look into your eyes, it’s over / you got me hooked with your love controller / I’m trippin’ and I could not get over / I feel lucky like a four leaf clover.”[wpaudio url="http://cdn.idolator.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Jennifer-Lopez-ft-Lil-Wayne-I-39m-Into-You-OFF-Love-+DOWNLOAD.mp3" text="Jennifer Lopez feat.

While the beat is sparse and the lyrics border on simplistic, the melodies (particularly the irresistible chorus) and Jennifer’s warm vocals give this uplifting piece of pop an extra boost.
So far we’re pretty in like with Love? What do you think of Weezy and J.Lo’s collaboration?
