Pitbull gets J.Lo singing DJ Class lyrics
Baltimore club veteran DJ Class has made a lot of famous friends since dropping the breakout single â€śIâ€™m The Ishâ€ť in 2008, but perhaps none has been a more persistent booster for his career than Miami party rapper Pitbull. Pit jumped on the official remix of â€śIâ€™m The Ishâ€ť with Lil Jon, and had Class-produced tracks on 2009â€™s Rebelution, and 2010â€™s Armando. Still, itâ€™s a mild shock to hear â€śDrinks For You (Ladies Anthem),â€ť a track on Pitâ€™s new album Global Warming, on which Jennifer Lopez sings a line from â€śIâ€™m The Ishâ€ť over a DJ Class beat as part of the songâ€™s refrain: â€śI done had a long week, now itâ€™s time to celebrate.â€ť
Pitbull has never been afraid to reinterpret and recycle, and Global Warming is full of shameless samples and interpolations of instantly recognizable pop hits like Sheryl Crowâ€™s â€śAll I Wanna Do,â€ť A-Haâ€™s â€śTake On Me,â€ť and Mickey & Sylviaâ€™s â€śLove Is Strange.â€ť But thereâ€™s still something surreal about hearing one of the most famous women in the world sing the lyrics of a Baltimore club track. J.Lo and Pitbull have collaborate three times before, including on last yearâ€™s triple platinum megahit â€śOn The Floor,â€ť so if â€śDrinks For Youâ€ť is released as a single you may be hearing Classâ€™s words everywhere soon.
