Love Dont Cost A Thing
"Love Don't Cost a Thing" is a pop and R&B song with a running time of three minutes and forty-two seconds (3:42). It was primarily produced by Ric Wake, with additional production from Cory Rooney and Richie Jones. Lopez recorded her vocals for the song with Dan Hetzel and Dave Scheyer at the Cove City Sound Studios in Glen Cove, New York, which were mixed by Jones and Hetzel. Later, the song was mastered by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York. According to MTV News, "Love Don't Cost a Thing" carries on Lopez' exploration of love in her music from her first single, "If You Had My Love". Additionally, the track details the "inner workings of love". Lyrically, it is the "tale of a materialistic relationship" which is full of "credit cards and lavish gifts"; Lopez sings in the chorus: "Think you gonna keep me iced, you don't/ Think I'm gonna spend your cash, I won't/ Even if you were broke/ My love don't cost a thing." She also states that she is "not impressed" by her lover's Mercedes-Benz because "she's got her own".
Love Dont Cost a Thing
A writer from the website Crosswalk noted it to be a "fun dance song" and said, "This song, with its addictive beat and familiar vocal riffs, has a bunch of young girls singing 'even if you were broke, my love don't cost a thing.'" Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic called it "ingratiating", while Bill Lamb of About.com called it a "frothy pop confection" which he felt was "strongly influenced by the hits of Destiny's Child".
"Thought you'd understand, baby credit cards aren't romance," she sings to her materialistic lover, insisting: "Even if you were broke, my love don't cost a thing." And if you weren't convinced, she even re-branded herself as J.Lo - her nickname among fans - to prove she was still one of the people.
