While recording the album, Jennifer stated:
 
 
"''They just stay with you... I wanted to do something that's true to me and how I grew up, but I also wanted to make beautiful songs. So I'd listen to records from today and I would listen to records from back then, and [eventually] I'd go, 'That's what I want.'"
 
 
Among some songs written for the album, "I'm Glad" was conceived and recorded at the Hit Factory, in New York.
 
 
After releasing "Jenny from the Block" and "All I Have" as singles with the latter topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart, "I'm Glad" was announced as the third single to be released on April 8, 2003.
 
 
According to Jennifer, she initially didn't want "Jenny from the Block" or "All I Have" to be released as singles from the album.
 
 
She felt that the tracks were too similar to her previous singles such as "Ain't It Funny" and "I'm Real." She felt like she was "''visiting old territory.''"
 
 
According to Jennifer:
 
 
"''Those tracks were like a different era for me, and I didn't want people to perceive it like I'm just trying to capitalize on the same thing. But the record company was like, 'Who cares what they think, those are hits mama!''"
 
 
Jennifer (who stated she "''calls the shots''") eventually agreed.
