This was initially chosen to be the lead single for the Live It Up
album, but DeWyze switched to "Sweet Serendipity
" shortly before the release. In a telephone interview with radio host Ryan Seacrest, DeWyze explained why he changed his mind, saying that he played the song for a lot of people, and he felt that "Serendipity" is the one that stood out the most. He added that whilst both songs have some similar "Jason Mraz vibes," "Live It Up" is a bit more sleepy than "Serendipity."
