Album: Me, You and the Music (2013)

  • Lyrics
  • The lead single from American Pop-R&B singer Jessica Sanchez's Me, You and the Music album is a club-ready track that features American R&B singer Ne-Yo. Sanchez admitted to MTV News that she doesn't know how the collaboration came about. "It's ridiculous," she said about working with the star. "My manager told me he wanted to do something with me. Even meeting him is crazy. I still get shy around him. I'm like, 'oh my gosh, it's Ne-Yo!' I've been such a big fan. I feel so blessed."
  • Regarding the song's meaning, Sanchez told MTV News: "'Tonight' is a song about people that are usually stressed out, everybody has problems and everything, and 'Tonight' is a song about going out that night and having the best night of your life."
  • The song's accompanying music video was shot in downtown Los Angeles on March 1, 2013 with director Justin Francis. Sanchez explained to MTV News on the video set: "I'm just going to be walking through having a typical day, me being like 'whatever,' then I'm going to go to the club and be like 'oh my gosh, it's like the best night of my life.' I'm just going to let go and just have fun. There's going to be lots of dancing. It's going to be hot."
