Jennifer Lopez - Ain't It Funny (original version)

The song Ain't It Funny is from Jennifer's second studio album, J.Lo (2001), written by Jennifer Lopez and Cory Rooney.

Jennifer had written the song for the soundtrack of the movie The Wedding Planner, although it did not make the cut since it had too much of a "latin" sound.  It was released as a single on July 3, 2001.

Ain't It Funny was a huge success in the international market, reaching the top five in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Sweden, and the top ten in Australia, Belgium, Ireland, Norway, and Switzerland.  However, due to poor promotion and lack of airplay time, the song was not eligible to chart on any of the Billboard charts.

A new hip hop-oriented remix entitled Ain't It Funny (Murder Remix) appeared on Lopez's 2002 remix album J to tha L-O!:  The Remixes . . . it was far more successful than the original track in the United States.
