"Hotel Room Service" is a song by rapper Pitbull released as the third single from his fourth album, Rebelution. The song samples "Push the Feeling On" by Nightcrawlers and "Rapper's Delight" by The Sugarhill Gang. It was released to both iTunes and mainstream radio on June 16, 2009.[1] It peaked at #8 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it his second top 10 hit along with "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)".

The song references "Whatever You Like" by T.I. when it says "And like T.I.'s Whatever You Like"; "Gimme that sweet, that nasty, that gushy stuff" is a line from Jay-Z's "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)"; "Put them fingers in your mouth / Open up your blouse / Pull that g-string down south" is taken from The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Nasty Boy" and the line "We at the hotel, motel, Holiday Inn" is a line in the song "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugarhill Gang, with the latter part also being a reference to a track by Chingy of the same name. On September 16, the official remix to "Hotel Room Service" was released, which features The Pussycat Dolls lead singer Nicole Scherzinger.

Music video[edit]

The song's official music video was released on August 10, 2009 by Pitbull's YouTube channel Pitbull Music.

Jim Jonsin, Sophia Del Carmen and Feisty from For the Love of Ray J make cameo appearances in the video as does Nayer and Sagia Castañeda, who appeared in the "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)" video as well. The video features Pitbull with models Elizabeth Mendez, Cassie Codi, Lisa Morales, Anya Gonzalez and Kimbella Vanderhee.

A version of the song titled "Super Clean Edit" (3:58) was released to radio stations and features alternate lyrics in place of the 'egg whites' line. Amended: Yo' man just left, I'm the doctor tonight. Check up right! Oh, you the healthy type, well I'mma give you just what you like... This version also replaces the outro in which Pitbull exclaims 'Mujeres!' to an English translation 'All my ladies!'[2]

The video was also released onto Pitbull's official VEVO channel on November 14, 2009. It has received over 80 million views.[3]
