About If You Had My Love

"If You Had My Love" is the debut single by American actress and singer Jennifer Lopez. It was released on June 13, 1999 as the lead single from her debut album On the 6 (1999). The song was written by LaShawn Daniels, Cory Rooney, and its producer Rodney Jerkins. Michael Jackson had also showed interest in recording it, but he felt that it was better suited for a female singer. "If You Had My Love" is a midtempo pop and R&B song that also features Latin and hip hop influences. Its lyrics revolve around the beginning of a new relationship, during which Lopez confronts her admirer with a number of ground rules. Critics reacted positively to "If You Had My Love", praising its "silky groove" and "edgy" production. Upon its release, it generated instant attention and became a commercial success, peaking at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 for five weeks. It became one of the best-selling singles of 1999, selling over 1.2 million units in the US alone. It was also an international success, topping the charts in Australia, Canada, Finland, Greece, Hungary and New Zealand. Its success came as a surprise to critics, making Lopez one of few actors to successfully crossover into the music industry. It also contributed to the growing popularity of Latin artists in Northern America. In retrospect, "If You Had My Love" has been described as an "R&B classic", and it is considered one of Lopez's best songs.

If you had my love and I gave you all my trust
Would you comfort me?
And if somehow you knew that your love would be untrue
Would you lie to me?
And call me baby

Now if I give you me, this is how it's got to be
First of all I won't take your cheating on me
Tell me who can I trust if I can't trust in you
And I refuse to let you play me for a fool (yeah, yeah)

You said that we (you said that we could possibly spend eternity)
Could possibly, spend eternity (yeah yeah yeah yeah)

Would you lie to me? (Na, na, na, na, na)
And call me baby

You said you want my love
And you've got to have it all
But first, there are some things you need to know
If you wanna live
With all I have to give
I need to feel true love or it's got to end, yeah

I don't want you (don't want you)
Trying to get with me (trying to, trying to get with me)
And I end up unhappy (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
I don't need the hurt (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)
And I don't need the pain, so before I do (before I do)
Give myself to you (give myself)
I have to know the truth (yeah yeah yeah yeah)
If I spend my life with you (yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah)

If you had my love (had my love) and I gave you all my trust (gave you trust)
Would you comfort me? (What would do babe? Tell me right now)
And if somehow you knew (I need to know) that your love would be untrue (be untrue)
Would you lie to me? (Don't lie)
And call me baby (don't you lie to me)

If you had my love (if I gave it to you)
And I gave you all my trust (what would you do?)
Would you comfort me? (Comfort me, ooh, tell me baby)
