It’s approaching summer in the northern hemisphere, so here we have a tilt at a summer YOLO club banger anthem. Despite a slick intro and signature Miami-shoutout from Pitbull (who, for some reason, I find really listenable), Live It Up falls apart due to the rampant folly of cramming as many hooks into a pop song as possible. Pretty much everything J-Lo sings could classify as a chorus, none of them worthwhile. The refrain of “let’s fuck tonight” is pretty hilarious and great, however.
