People always say something like “Live as if this was your last day,” whenever they want to motivate somebody, particularly to do something big or crazy, or just anything. Well, it’s okay to go crazy once in a while. And what I mean by crazy here is in a positive light, of course. Have you ever felt so stuck in a certain moment? Have you ever felt so hard to breathe like there’s no air left around? Have you ever felt so exhausted till you can’t even sleep at night? Have you ever felt so messed up inside and had no idea about what have you done all this time? Eventually, everyone gets to that point. Perhaps, all we need to do is just taking a little break for a moment, and giving ourselves everything while at it. Therefore, after that, we can go on for life, growing strong. Because life is too short to not giving a little fun in it. It’s alright to lose yourself sometimes. And life is too harsh to not letting free of yourself while living it. It’s fine to have the fun anytime. I call it living in the moment, because we might not get tomorrow.

Tonight, I want all of you tonight. Give me everything tonight. For all we know, we might not get tomorrow. Let’s do it tonight.” –Pitbull feat. Ne-Yo, Afrojack & Nayer, Give Me Everything

For people who live in the moment, this song titled “Give Me Everything” is today’s song for Growing Strong. It’s performed by American rapper, Pitbull, and features American R n’ B singer Ne-Yo, Dutch DJ Afrojack and American singer Nayer. The electro-dance-pop track was released on March 21st 2011, served as the second single from Pitbull’s sixth studio album, “Planet Pit”. Despite the mixed reviews from music critics, the single was a commercial success, giving Pitbull, Afrojack and Nayer their first number-one hit in the US. It was written by Pitbull himself, along with Ne-Yo and Afrojack, under their birth names, Armando Pérez, Shaffer Smith, and Nick van de Wall, respectively.

Everyone needs a little break, a sweet escape from their daily routines. And if you only got one night, what would you do? Lyrically, “Give Me Everything” tells about people who live in the moment, and give their everything to every little bit of it. “Me not working hard? Yeah, right! Picture that with a Kodak, or, better yet, go to Times Square, take a picture of me with a Kodak. Took my life from negative to positive, I just want y’all know that. And tonight, let’s enjoy life, Pitbull, Nayer, Ne-Yo, that’s right.” So gather up our friends and just enjoy the night, because no one is a better companion than a few good friends. “Take advantage of tonight, cause tomorrow I’m off to Dubai to perform for a princess. But tonight, I can make you my queen and make love to you endless. This is insane, the way the name growin’, money keep flowin’, hustlers move aside. So, I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’, I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan.” We won’t have the exact same moment tomorrow, so let’s make the best out of this night, and make it a night worth to remember in the future.
“Reach for the stars and if you don’t grab ‘em, at least you’ll fall on top of the world. Think about it, cause if you slip, I’m gon’ fall on top yo girl. What I’m involved with is deeper than the masons. Baby, baby, and it ain’t no secret my family’s from Cuba. But I’m an American Idol, get money like Seacrest.” People live, spend their days thinking and worrying about the future. So how about taking tonight for the present? We don’t know what the future brings. And we’ve been living our life preparing for what might be tomorrow. So I guess it’s okay to have a little time for ourselves in the moment. And why not tonight? Because we might not get tomorrow. So let’s give everything tonight. “Put it on my life, baby, I make you feel right, baby. Can’t promise tomorrow, but, I promise tonight, dalé.”
Just for one night in our life, it’s okay to let loose. Perhaps drinking a little more and dancing a little wilder. Those won’t hurt. “Excuse me. And I might drink a little more than I should tonight. And I might take you home with me, if I could tonight. And, baby, I might make you feel so good, tonight. Cause we might not get tomorrow.” Tonight, we might get what we want; we might find out what we really need for life; we might figure out what the best thing for us in life. “Tonight, I want all of you tonight. Give me everything tonight. For all we know, we might not get tomorrow. Let’s do it tonight.” Who knows that after tonight, we would understand that living in the moment doesn’t mean we don’t give a damn about the future. On the other hand, it means we give everything towards every moment of the present for the sake of a growing strong future. “Don’t care what they say or what games they play. Nothing is enough ‘til I have your love. Let’s do it tonight. I want you tonight, I want you to stay. Grab somebody sexy, tell ‘em hey, give me everything tonight.”


Pitbull in "Give Me Everything" music video

An official music video for “Give Me Everything” was released onto Pitbull’s official Vevo channel on Youtube on May 6th 2011. It was directed by David Roulsseau and featuring an appearance by Miss Haiti 2010 Sarodj Bertin, former Girlicious member Natalie Mejia, Cheetah Girls’ singer Adrienne Bailon, and Russian model Eva Skaya. In 2012, this song was featured in musical comedy film “Pitch Perfect”, performed by the Barden Bellas for their final performance in a mash-up a cappella rendition with some other songs under the title “Bellas Finals”. It was an amazing performance, marked the rising of a brand new Bellas as the growing strong female a cappella group.

Excuse me. And I might drink a little more than I should tonight. And I might take you home with me, if I could tonight. And, baby, I might make you feel so good, tonight. Cause we might not get tomorrow.” –Pitbull feat. Ne-Yo, Afrojack & Nayer, Give Me Everything






“Me not working hard? Yeah, right! Picture that with a Kodak
Or, better yet, go to Times Square, take a picture of me with a Kodak
Took my life from negative to positive, I just want y’all know that
And tonight, let’s enjoy life, Pitbull, Nayer, Ne-Yo, that’s right

Tonight, I want all of you tonight, give me everything tonight
For all we know, we might not get tomorrow, let’s do it tonight

Don’t care what they say or what games they play
Nothing is enough ‘til I have your love, let’s do it tonight
I want you tonight, I want you to stay, I want you tonight
Grab somebody sexy, tell ‘em hey, give me everything tonight

Take advantage of tonight, cause tomorrow I’m off to Dubai to perform for a princess
But tonight, I can make you my queen and make love to you endless
This is insane, the way the name growin’, money keep flowin’, hustlers move aside
So, I’m tiptoein’, to keep flowin’, I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan

Put it on my life, baby, I make you feel right, baby
Can’t promise tomorrow, but, I promise tonight, dalé

Excuse me, and I might drink a little more than I should tonight
And I might take you home with me, if I could tonight
And, baby, I might make you feel so good, tonight
Cause we might not get tomorrow

Reach for the stars and if you don’t grab ‘em, at least you’ll fall on top of the world
Think about it, cause if you slip, I’m gon’ fall on top yo girl
