Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull 'Live It Up' on New Single: Listen
Like graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate, the combination of Jennifer Lopez, Pitbull and producer RedOne has proven to be endlessly winning. After scoring hits with 2011's "On The Floor" and last year's "Dance Again," the trio has once again united for "Live It Up," Lopez's new single which premiered on Elvis Duran's syndicated radio show on Wednesday (May 8).
Like "On The Floor" and "Dance Again," "Live It Up" has been engineered as a dance-ready summer anthem, with RedOne's chopped-up synths hitting overdrive after Pitbull commands his audience, "Make love! Don't fight! Let's hook tonight!" Meanwhile, Lopez seems to be having a blast on the track, tossing out inspirational phrases about doing anything we want, living it up, not stopping, and going.
Lopez is rumored to be performing "Live It Up" during the two-part finale of "American Idol" next week (May 15-16), which would mark her first return to the show after residing on the judges panel for two seasons. The singer previously performed "On The Floor" and "Dance Again" on "Idol," which helped those tracks score sales of 3.8 million and 1.2 million respectively, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Jennifer Lopez and Pitbull will both be taking the stage at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, airing live from Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena on May 19. Will they "Live It Up" onstage together? Fans will just have to wait and see.
