Songfacts®:

  • Igleasis teamed up with Pitbull for this tune. It was the third single on which the pair had collaborated with following the Spanish-American singer's "I Like It" and "I Like How It Feels." They also worked together on the Cuban-American rapper's album tracks, "Come 'n' Go" and "Tchu Tchu Tcha." "He's similar to me in that he doesn't take his success for granted," Iglesias told Digital Spy. "We're both enjoying where we're at in our lives. We're friends and we live in the same town, which means we're always in the studio together."
  • The track was helmed by the production group The Cataracs (Robin Thicke, Selena Gomez), who also manned the boards on Iglesias' singles "Turn The Night Up" and "Heart Attack."
  • The song's raunchy music video was directed by Colin Tilley, who also directed the clip for Enrique's "Heart Attack." The singer told Capital FM's Breakfast Show that there was no plan for the visual, which is set in the midst of a debauched house party, except to "go bonkers." "It's a funny story," he said. "Because the director, it's his friend's house. He said, 'I just wanna go to the house and have fun and not even really plan anything just have people go crazy, go bonkers.'"
