Can't Get Enough

Album: Play It Again (2014)
  • This track from Becky G's Play It Again EP finds her collaborating with Pitbull. The teenage singer penned the tune with hitmaker Dr Luke (Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone," Taio Cruz's "Dynamite"), his frequent collaborator Cirkut and Pitbull's A&R right hand man, DJ Buddha.
  • The song was sent to Latin radio and received heavy rotation, becoming both Becky G and Dr Luke's first #1s on the Billboard Latin Rhythm Airplay chart.
  • Becky explained to Rolling Stone how the collaboration with Pitbull came about: "First, I was in the studio with Buddha, Cirkut and Luke and after I did the hook, Buddha was like, 'Oh my God, I got to send this to Pit,'" she recalled. "Pit sent it back with some verse ideas, and I was like, 'Oh my God, this is crazy!' He's Mr. Worldwide, he was literally in a different part of the world when we did it [laughs]."


    "It was a rite of passage for me, having a song with Pit — Uncle Pit, as I would say — because he really is like having another uncle," she added. "He's just the sweetest, most humble, smartest man I've ever met. Of course I shouldn't say that because all my other uncles would be jealous [laughs]."
  • Becky G recorded both an English and Spanish version of the song.
