Sneaked out in the dying days of 2013, Pitbull has snatched himself a second UK No.1. I wonder if anyone really buys his albums, it’s not like he needs it, he’s got a never-ending blizzard of singles, and when he’s not releasing those he’s featuring on other people’s tracks.
There’s not much to it, but at least I can see the appeal with it, unlike those minimal plinky-plonk dance tracks that have topped the charts lately. It might not be especially high-brow but I quite like these trashy dance tracks, and it’s a natural fit to see Ke$ha coming in for a career reboot.
I miss Ke$ha, it feels like ages since her second album “Warrior” underperformed, and now she’s in rehab for an eating disorder. But at least she’s got a hit on her hands again.
The song itself is ‘of the moment’ as you could think of now, fairly standard dance pop with a catchy sample. This time it’s a harmonica reprising the chorus melody throughout. Let’s not examine the lyrics too much, it’s just about having a big night and presumably having sex (and going down like timber).
I guess the New Year party season hasn’t finished yet, and at least it’s one of the slightly more accomplished dancepop floorfillers that’s taking hold.
