Jennifer Lopez & Nas Get Into Some ‘Troubeaux’

JLo Nas VMAs

Dancer, actress, singer and certified Billboard icon Jennifer Lopez is set to release her 10th studio album, A.K.A., on June 17th. With a release date so close, of course that means that tracks from the set are leaking left and right. The latest is Jenny From the Block's latest collabo with Queen's finest Nas, "Troubeaux."  The duo team up for the first time since their 2002 collaboration "I'm Gonna Be Alright" atop a funky flip of Tom Scott and The California Dreamers' "Today" -- best known as the sample backing Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth's "They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)" -- as La Lopez reminisces on a bad boy that she just can't get enough of.  And of course Nasty Nas fits right in as he assumes the bad boy role with rhymes like "Got three cases, might have a warrant I don't know about/Beef I don't know about, weed I can't go without."

Though the song's name might be a bit ridiculous, I'd venture to say that "Troubeaux" is a serious jam. But you don't have to take my word for it. Go ahead, and press play to see what I mean.
