Enrique Iglesias dropped his first single of 2013 with "Turn The Night Up" which was just released today as an official music video:
The song was produced by The Cataracs and co-written with Niles Hollowell-Dhar, Marty James, and Rome Ramirez. It's a dance party friendly track that sounds a lot like Nicki Minaj's "Starships" with a lot of Black Eyed Peas mixed in there, as well. It's a recipe for a club banger, for sure. It sounds a lot like Iglesias' hit song from 2010, "I Like It," but the inspiration this time around was a phrase he commonly says to his girlfriend Anna Kournikova, as he told Ryan Seacrest in a radio interview.
The video is druggy and more than a little bizarre. There's also some controversial background. Wikipedia says that "This video was originally shot my Justin Francis, but the record label decided not to go with that video. The reshoot was directed by Yasha Malekzad, and produced by Artist Preserve Ltd." So far, the original video has not surfaced on the internet so we can't tell why the record label decided to redo the video - in favor of a video where a toilet bowl explodes into Iglesias' face.
