Single of the Day: Pitbull & Ne-Yo – Time of Our Lives 

Released by: Sony Music Entertainment Indonesia

Gone are the days of ‘Calle Ocho’, karena sekarang Pitbull kayak enggak PD untuk tampil sendirian memeriahkan lagunya. Dari album studio terbarunya, “Globalization“, ia merilis ‘Time of Out Lives‘ yang kembali mengikatnya dengan penyanyi/penulis lagu/produser Ne-Yo. Ini merupakan kesempatan kedua bagi keduanya untuk berdampingan di satu lagu, setelah sukses besar di 2011 ‘Give Me Everything’. Dibantu oleh Dr.Luke, Cirkut, dan tim, lagu ini memang kalah club/house anthemic dibanding ‘Give Me Everything’, tapi jelas ia punya feel yang lebih real.

Kemudian, dengan durasi sepanjang 3 menit 49 detik, lagu dibagi dalam beberapa fragmen. Verse rap oleh Pit tersaji dua kali, hook resmi oleh Ne-Yo sebanyak empat kali, dengan empat pre-hook yang mendahuluinya, serta sebuah bridge menjelang akhir lagu. Itu mengapa kolaborasi ini menggunakan nama Pitbull & Ne-Yo, bukannya featuring. Proporsi seimbang menjadikan kolaborasi ini tak berpihak.

Arah musik Pitbull belakangan menjorok pada bunyi instrumen yang organik. Meskipun pengaruh elektronika masih lebih berkuasa, tapi setidaknya ia sudah mencoba untuk lebih nyata dalam menghadirkan sound di musik. Ini berpengaruh pada fuse yang ia lakukan terhadap dance-hop yang menjadi akar musik. Sebongkah soul/urban/retro vibe menjadi bumbu terhadap lagu, menambah panjang daftar mix and match yang ia pernah ia lakukan.

Hubungan Pit dan Ne-Yo di kesempatan kali ini mutualisme. Karena Pit butuh membuat hit masif dari album studio terbarunya dan Ne-Yo juga perlu pemanasan untuk album studio yang berjarak tiga tahun dari album sebelumnya. Dengan kehadirannya di 40 besar Billboard Hot 100, tampaknya ‘Time’ sudah menuntaskan pekerjaannya bagi kedua belah pihak.

LYRIC
[Pre-Chorus – Ne-Yo:]
I knew my rent was gon’ be late about a week ago
I worked my ass off, but I still can’t pay it though
But I got just enough
To get up in this club
Have me a good time, before my time is up
Hey, let’s get it now

[Chorus – Ne-Yo:]
Ooh I want the time of my life
Oh baby
Ooh give me the time of my life
Let’s get it now

[Verse 1 – Pitbull:]
This is the last $20 I got
But I’m a have a good time ballin’ or out
Tell the bartender line up some shots
Cause I’m a get loose tonight
She’s on fire, she’s so hot
I’m no liar, she burned the spot
Look like Mariah, I took another shot
Told her drop, drop, drop, drop it like it’s hot
Dirty talk, dirty dance
She a freaky girl and I’m a freaky man
She on the rebound, broke up with her ex
And I’m like Rodman, ready on deck
I told her I wanna ride out, and she said yes
We didn’t go to church, but I got blessed

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Verse 2 – Pitbull:]
Tonight I’m a lose my mind
Better get yours cause I’m gonna get mine
Party every night like my last
Mommy know the drill, shake that ass
Go ahead baby let me see what you got
You know you got the biggest booty in this spot
And I just wanna see that thing drop
From the back to the front to the top
You know me I’m off in the cut
Always like a Squirrel, looking for a nut
This isn’t for show I’m not talking ’bout luck
I’m not talking ’bout love, I’m talking ’bout lust
Now let’s get loose, have some fun
Forget about bills and the first of the month
It’s my night, your night, our night, let’s turn it up

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Bridge – Ne-Yo:]
Everybody going through something
(Everybody going through something)
I said, everybody going through something
(Everybody going through something)
So you might as well you roll it up
Pour it up, drink it up, throw it up tonight
I said, everybody going through something
(Everybody going through something)
Said, everybody going through something
(Everybody going through something)
So you might as well you roll it up
Pour it up, drink it up, throw it up tonight

[Verse 3 – Pitbull:]
This for anybody going through tough times
Believe me, been there, done that
But everyday above ground is a great day, remember that

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]
