Live It Up

Album: The Female Boss (2012)
Charted: 11

Songfacts®:

  • This collaboration with Young Money rapper, Tyga, was unveiled as Tulisa's second solo single by Capital FM, on July 24,2012. Despite the chart-topping accomplishment of her debut release, "Young," the singer was not anticipating huge commercial success with this tune. "Basically, with this single there is no aim at all to get a #1 or storm the charts," she told Capital FM. "This is now me going back to me and trying to define myself as an artist because I knew I wanted a #1 hit as my first release, I got that with 'Young,' so I went even more urban with this second single."
  • Tulisa penned the song with the help of American R&B songwriter/producer Rico Love, who has previously worked with the likes of Usher, Beyoncé and Kelly Rowland. She described it to MTV UK as "urban/reggae/bashment/hip-hop."
