Throwback Thursday ‘I Like It’ by Enrique Iglesias feat. Pitbull (2010)
"I Like It" by Enrique Iglesias was his first English language single from the album, Euphoria.
The song was also featured on the Jersey Shore soundtrack.
It features Pitbull and Lionel Richie. The song samples Lionel Richie's "All Night Long". Richie even re-recorded some of those vocals.
"I Like It" was a bit of a comeback song for Enrique Iglesias. Wikipedia states, "...it reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming Iglesias' first solo top five hit in nearly eight years, the last being 2001's 'Hero', which peaked at number three. The song peaked at number one in Canada, Australian Dance Charts, US Latin Pop Songs and US Hot Billboard Dance Club Songs. With this song Iglesias made history, tying with Michael Jackson and Prince as the male artist with most number-one hits at the Hot Dance Club Songs chart. It even reached number 2 on Mainstream Top 40 for four weeks, (kept from number one by 'Dynamite' by Taio Cruz and the biggest hit of the summer, 'Teenage Dream' by Katy Perry)."
There are actually two versions of the music video. The first features Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull with some cool Matrix-style effects that was directed by Wayne Isham. See above.
The second music video features the Jersey Shore cast trying to get onto the music video set so they can hang with Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull. See below.
