This Chris Brown-assisted single off Pitbull's sixth album, Planet Pit, finds the Miami MC singing in both English and Spanish about the globe's hottest spots. The scale of hotness is determined by that destination's damsels: Ladies are bombshells in Lebanon, down for threesomes in Romania, and boast "freaky big ol' boot[ies]" in Brazil. "It's all about the music being global, music being the universal language," Pitbull said. "No matter what language you may or may not speak, you speak music."
Indie-rock trio Menomena use a collaborative approach to song-writing. So when multi-instrumentalist Justin Harris came up with "TAOS," a slacker anthem of faux-confidence and an anacronym for "The Art of Seduction," drummer Danny Seim admitted he was a bit unsure about it. "I'm doing my best to pad the fact that the song was hard for me to listen to at first," Seim said. But the track eventually grew on him. "Suddenly his voice has become this weapon," he said about Harris. "It’s so emotionally supercharged, and almost laughingly over the top."
