==Composition & Lyrics==
"I'm Glad" is a contemporary R&B song which includes elements of dance-pop and soul music, with a length of three minutes and forty-two seconds.
 
 
It was written by Jennifer, Cory Rooney, Troy Oliver and Andre Deyo with Oliver & Rooney serving as producers.
 
 
The song contains a sample of Schoolly D's 1986 song "P.S.K. What Does It Mean?" which was originally written by Jesse Weaver, Jr.
 
 
It was reported by the magazine Face Up that Ben Affleck played "I'm Glad" when he proposed to Jennifer.
 
 
Lyrically, "I'm Glad" is about finding the right lover after a long period of time.
 
 
A minute into the song, Jennifer sings about meeting someone for the first time unexpectedly, "''Baby when I think about/The day that we first met/Wasn't looking for what I found/But I found you/And I'm bound to/find happiness in bein' around you.''"
 
 
Jennifer exhales in the pre-chorus deeply, "''I think I'm in love/Damn, finally!''" During the chorus, she sings about lovemaking, feeling "''glad for the way''" her lover makes her feel because he seems to "''blow''" her mind every time.
 
 
She also expresses gratefulness for him lavishing her with affection. In the song's bridge, Jennifer continues to sing about finding the man who has made her life "''worth living.''"
 
 
At its conclusion, she sings, "''say that you won't leave/'cause since the day you came/I'm glad.''"
