botsjliljon

Welcome back to the Battle of the Summer Jams where you determine the song of the summer in a weekly battle of chart-topping hits. This week Jason Derulo and Lil Jon are facing off with two club jams. But first we need to look back on last week’s battle, which saw Demi Lovato topple Jennifer Lopez with “Really Don’t Care.” She’ll join Becky G and Iggy Azalea in the winner’s circle. But which of the two hip-hop stars will join this female-dominated Summer Jams?

Last night’s inaugural iHeartRadio Music Awards gave stars a reason to flock to the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles and for Clear Channel executives to pat themselves on the back. After a successful run with the iHeartRadio music festival — a jam-packed September concert that’s boasted sets from Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Katy Perry over its three years – the company threw its first award show. The categories were similar to that of the American Music Awards, Grammys and MTV VMAs, and, as tends to be the case at these fancy ceremonies, the unfortunate fashion was there in spades.

Behind The Music: Pitbull Talks About Being Discovered By Lil Jon

In Behind The Music, Pitbull talks candidly to us about his phenomenal rise to fame, and in this little sneak peek you can find out how he was first discovered by Lil Jon. Speaking about the first time he heard Pitbull on the radio, Lil Jon says, “I was like, that is crazy, because I hadn’t really heard any Spanglish records like that.” Listening to the two guys speaking exclusively on the meeting that followed is a funny montage — juxtaposing Lil Jon’s beeped out swears with Pitbull’s boyish confusion and excitement makes for a giggle-inducing moment that sort of makes you feel like you could be friends with either of these guys. Pitbull describes Lil Jon approaching him with a twinkle in his eye and a giant smile across his face, “[Lil Jon said] “I don’t know what you’re saying, but you’re snapping shorty”… And in my head I’m like I dunno what he saying, what is he saying?” The two then go on to talk about laying down Pitbull’s first verse in the studio, which was adopted on Lil Jon’s album, and the giddiness as Pitbull recalls the experience is downright infectious.

Tune in to VH1 for the premiere of Pitbull’s Behind The Music on March 15th at 9/8c.
