The song received mostly positive reviews from music critics.
 
 
Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic picked the song as one of his "''track picks''" noting that the song has " hook, but it needs a couple of spins before its catch holds."
 
 
While saying that the song "sound like it's straight out of 1986," Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine called it "''a retro pop track reminiscent of Janet Jackson's Control era.''"
 
 
Tom Sinclair of Entertainment Weekly called it "''a chirpy little synth pop number''" while CJB of UKMix called it "''a commercial R&B tune for the dancefloors.''"
 
 
Marvin van der Weyde also of UKMix named it "''a very funky R&B/pop tune, and just as catchy as the remix version.''"
 
 
Bill Lamb of About.com observed the track has "''a truly engaging light, sexy touch.''"
 
 
The "Murder Remix" also received favorable reviews from music critics.
 
 
William Ruhlmann of Allmusic picked the song as one of the best from the album while Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine called it "''edgy, often sexy remix''" naming it "''a significant departure from the retro-hued album version.''"
 
 
Ian Wade of Yahoo! Music wrote that:
 
 
"''Only the Ja Rule assisted 'I'm Real' and 'Ain't It Funny" that makes something vaguely special out of the original versions, Jen'd be better off just hooking up with him for good and they could become a Cristal-sipping, foulmouthed and bling-blinging Sonny & Cher.''"
 
 
Marvin van der Weyde of UK Mix noted that "''you won't be able to get it out of your head. It's incredibly catchy, with great raps from Ja Rule and a fantastic beat.''"
 
 
While reviewing Ja Rule's 'Pain is Love' album, Soren Baker of Los Angeles Times noted that:
 
 
"''I'm Real'' is "one of the album's stronger songs as Rule's rough voice and Lopez's sugary tones make a surprisingly appealing blend.''"
