Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Pitbull's second single from his fifth studio album Planet Pit features production from Dutch dance music producer and DJ Afrojack, while Pitbull spits lyrics directed to his lover.
R&B singer Ne-Yo and model/actress Nayer provide the hook on the electro house number. Nayer is a frequent contributor to Pitbull's tunes having previously provided vocals for the Cuban-American rapper's Armando track "Vida 23." You may also spot her in the video for "I Know You Want Me" wearing a police uniform.
Six weeks after he topped the UK singles charts alongside Jennifer Lopez on On The Floor, Pitbull had his first British #1 single as a lead artist with this song.
The song's music video was directed by David Rousseau and features an appearance by Adrienne Bailon. The singer and actress was previously a member of girl group 3LW and the Disney created The Cheetah Girls.
The song was the first Hot 100 #1 for Pitbull and AfroJack and Nayer, while Ne-Yo previously topped the chart with his debut entry "So Sick" in 2006.

Pitbull's debut Hot 100 was "Culo" in the week of April 24, 2004. His wait of seven years, two months and two weeks for his first #1 was the longest for a solo male since Lil Wayne hang around for eight years, nine months and three weeks between his first chart visit in 1999 and "Lollipop" in 2008.
Pitbull's first choice for the featured spot on this song was Shakira - he previously collaborated on the Colombian superstar's track, "Rabiosa." "I tried to get Shakira on the record but, due to some personal things she was going through, she couldn't jump on the record," he admitted.
One of Pitbull's lines namechecks Lindsay Lohan. Unfortunately, the Hollywood actress was upset by the lyric "I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan" and slapped a lawsuit on the Cuban rapper. According to TMZ, her lawsuit claimed that "the lyrics, by virtue of its wide appeal, condemnation, excoriation, disparaging or defamatory statements by the defendants about the plaintiff are destined to do irreparable harm to the plaintiff."

Pitbull claimed that the lyric was not about Lohan's stint in jail, but conveyed the "positive message" that "if you got it locked up, it means you run the show." Not sure we're buying that.

United States District Judge Denis Hurley certainly didn't buy the lawsuit. ruling that as the song neither violated Lohan's right to privacy, or that it exploited her name to sell records, the actress's suit therefore had no merit.
Pitbull's real name is Armando Christian Perez. So why his canine moniker? He explained: "They bite to lock. The dog is too stupid to lose. And they're outlawed in Dade County. They're basically everything that I am. It's been a constant fight."
