"I'm Real" is the name of two songs by Jennifer Lopez. One is the song taken from her second studio album, J.Lo (2001), and the other is "I'm Real (Murder Remix)", which features rapper Ja Rule of The Inc. Records (formerly known as Murder Inc. Records), included on the special edition of J.Lo, Lopez's remix album, J to tha L-O!: The Remixes (2002), and Ja Rule's third studio album, Pain Is Love (2001). I'm Real (Murder Remix) reached number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 on September 8, 2001, and remained there for five non-consecutive weeks. Ja Rule had been brought in after the moderate US performance of "Play", the second single from J.Lo. Singer Ashanti (also on The Inc.) provided backing vocals on the Murder Remix. The two songs are essentially different songs with the same title.
