“Time Of Our Lives” follows the optimistic attitude described by “Celebrate” in the case of Pitbull, while for Ne-Yo represents the success registered in 2014, after the release of “She Knows”. The song describes the joy felt while the New Year approaches, creating a major party in the neighborhood.
Back in 1999, Pitbull and Ne-Yo are waiting for the New Year, while an ordinary Spanish family struggles to pay their bills. In order to help them, the two artists organize a rent party, where everybody interested is invited to participate and have a good time. The money is gathered in a golden fish’s aquarium, while Pitbull secretly steals some money. Once the party spirit increases, Pitbull and Ne-yo change their rapping outfits for elegant black suits, performing their song into a disco background.
Participants are feverishly dancing, drinking champagne, singing, playing skateboard and drawing graffiti. The party monopolizes the attention of everybody in the neighborhood, even the old woman of the Spanish family displayed in the first scenes participates. While counting down for the New Year, everybody handles fireworks, suggesting their joy and optimism for the event occuring. The message of the artists, shaking hands in the end of the video, is that everyday is a perfect day for celebrating.
“Time Of Our Lives” is the fifth single promoting Pitbull’s eighth studio album “Globalization”, that will be also included on the soundtrack of animated movie “Home”. Similarly to previously successful songs, Pitbull associated with an artist en vogue, in this case Ne-Yo, previously teaming with the American rapper in the case of “Give Me Everything” (2011). “Time Of Our Lives” is a dance-pop song with rap influence, written by Pitbull and Ne-Yo themselves, Robin Weisse, Shaffer Smith, Stephan Taft, Henry Walter and Lukasz Gottwald, also creating songs for Jessie J, Rihanna, Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj. The song was released on 17 November 2014, benefitting of Dr Luke, Cirkut and Lifted’ mastering, previously producing songs for Usher, Shakira, Maroon 5 or Kesha.
The video of “Time Of Our Lives” was premiered on 25 December 2014, directed by Gil Green, responsible for Lil Wayne’s “Lonely”, “Pot Of Gold” and “Don’t Matter” or Sean Kingston’s “Hell Yeah”. In order to suggest the travel back in time, the director implied suggestive elements such as pagers or disco lights, to recreate the particular atmosphere of that period.
