"This Boy's Fire" is a song by American rock band Santana featuring vocals from American recording artist Jennifer Lopez. The song was released as the second single from the band's compilation album Ultimate Santana (2007).

Background[edit]

The collaboration between Carlos Santana and Lopez was first announced in September 2007.[3] According to Contactmusic, it turned out "so good" which is why it was added to the final track listing of Ultimate Santana. Mexican rapper Baby Bash also features on the song, performing a rap verse.[4]

Reception[edit]

Monsters and Critics called the song "red hot"[5] while Stephen Thomas Erlewine noted that is "a dance number where Santana seems incidental."[6]
