The chorus of this semichill, ratchet club jam ("At the end of the night/Girls just wanna have fun") raises two important questions. One: Is J. Lo using the first half of the line the way others might use "at the end of the day," or is it literally only at evening's end that girls realize fun was the goal? Two: Has anyone in history sounded less like they are having fun than Lopez does here?
