Fireball – Pitbull feat. John Ryan
Our goal is to boogie woogie woogie, jiggle, wriggle, and dance our asses off like the ceiling has caught fire. Even if the words aren’t quite Shakespeare, this song has a definite shaky-booty vibe.

The song is melancholy and self-reflective, as you might expect, but it also features their trademark electronic sound, complete with loads of synthesizers and drops. Additionally, there’s a female vocalist to bring some levity to the proceedings. An excellent all-around piece of music with metaphorical language as well!
