''''If You Had My Love'' was my very first single from my very first album, a kind of defining song for me. I wanted to do it really pared down, so it would feel like a conversation - like I'm talking with the audience, sharing where I began and where I find myself now.'' - Jennifer Lopez
"I would always tell Jennifer that this is no different than her acting job. Forget technique. Just close your eyes and believe in every word you're singing. Don't worry about where you're standing or anything like that as far as positioning on the mic, because it's the job of the engineer to capture your voice. Just be you. Go into character for what this song is going to require and we'll pull off the rest." - Cory Rooney (songwriter)
''The lyrics refer to "the beginning of a new relationship and what I expect and what I want. There's a little bit of fear in there too, and a feeling of, what will you do if I give you my heart?" - Jennifer Lopez
