Story of Song

When Pitbull was asked by if the song is about making the most of every moment, he replied: “Of every night yes! I think it’s the best way; the most politically correct way of having a one night stand, I think it’s great.” Pitbull added: “Oh My God! I’d do it all baby! You already know that my formula is not that hard to figure out. I’d do it all with a lot of women. Yup, that would definitely be a great night and I could die really really happy.”
