I might shred songs apart. I might.

Pitbull is back with a new song! Yes, if it goes by with any doubt, Don't Stop The Party is Pitbull's latest 'Mr Worldwide' tradition song. Like all of his previous songs, it's all about dance, club and also... girls. Sounds estranged to his past hits? No. That's because this one features TJR, it's supposed to be different. So far... it isn't.
Before I go on, Global Warming, the record title of Pitbull's seventh studio album (he has come a long way people), is going to hit stores in November. Of course, the album will include the Men In Black hit Back In Time (which I've reviewed), and the Shakira accompanied Get It Started.
Since Planet Pit did so well across the world, we're going to be seeing a new revolution of Pitbull right? Sadly, no. Yes Pitbull fans, I'm not saying anything, but the tiredness of his songs goes through the wire, but taps nothing. All I'm saying is that he is like an open book which we re-read thousand of times without understanding anything, therefore we re-read it multiple times.
As always, I've got high hopes for any song as long as it's new, and new singles could prove to be Pitbull's forte in transforming the music industry to hip moving, club banging songs. Surprisingly, Don't Stop The Party seems eerily similar. Very similar to his old hits and it doesn't mean anything but vodka and just club dances.
The song starts off with 'You don't get the girls loose, loose / You don't get the world loose, loose / You don't get money pfew, pfew'. I'm not saying anything yet, but Pitbull's first verse goes, 'I'm running through this world like a running back / Scarface world is mine running back / 30,000 people in Hannover (to see me) / 80,000 people in London, Wembley / 90,000 people Morocco and I'm just getting warmed up, papo'. Okay, this has to stop. Pitbull, we're not like you, we can't see so many people getting to see you back, but we'd like to see something that people, or fans can easily relate to. At least we have some pride left in you.
With that, TJR's Funky Vodka is also the sample to the song. I am just... speechless.
Probably the only thing that is best about this song is the chorus after which the guy says 'Y'all having a good old time out there', before Pitbull starts bouncing on the microphone. 'Yeah yeah yeah / Que no pare la fiesta / Don't stop the party!'. Other than that, sadly, is nothing good as it's like a re-run of everything we've heard before. I don't even want to talk about it.
ORIGINALITY: 7/10 - Pitbull is Pitbull, and he's good at what he does best. The best way to describe it, I feel it.
SOUND: 7/10 - Not like the past hits, I have to say Don't Stop The Party is the least better than Back In Time, though the chorus is much more relatable anyway.
LYRICS: 6/10 - Just, just horrible. Yes, yes, some parts were good but many of the others could be fixed with better writing and a much better lacking innovation. Could be better.
OVERALL RATINGS: 20/30 - Don't Stop The Party fared okay on my scale, to be honest. Is it on My Playlist? Unless it's good enough to enter the top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100 I'd say. Otherwise, I'm just gonna' give it a few more spins.
Benny Ong: Just your regular guy who likes soccer more than most people, and also a little downtime is pretty nice.
