Jenny From The Block Returns With New Hip-Hop Single, "Girls"

Jennifer Lopez has been teasing a return to her "Jenny From The Block" days since December, when she was spotted kickin' it back in the Bronx while shooting her upcoming "Same Girl" music video. She later sealed the deal with an official video teaser for the urban single a few weeks later.

While "Same Girl" still hasn't dropped yet, J.Lo just surprised us with the release of a buzz single called "Girls." The hip-hop-heavy DJ Mustard cut sounds a lot like the producer's 2011 hit, Tyga's "Rack City," with a little of Cassie's RockaByeBaby flavour thrown in.

It's definitely the most urban thing Jen's done since her J to tha L-O! remix album 12 years ago, and as far as good J.Lo jams go, it totally trumps her last couples of singles without question. However, it's a little hard to buy one of the world's most glamorous women getting down to a song that sounds like it should serve as the soundtrack to strippers making it clap in the back of a club in the hood. Jenny may be from the block, but she's now a family woman in her mid-forties who was just paid almost $18 million bucks to star on American Idol (again).

But hey, "Girls" is a real bop, so who cares if it's believable?
