"Wild Wild Love" is a song by American rapper Pitbull featuring American recording artist group G.R.L. It was written by Pitbull, Ammar Malik, Lukasz Gottwald, Max Martin, Alexander Castillo Vasquez, Michael Everett (co-composer) and Henry Walter with the production handled by the latter five.

Critical response[edit]

Mike Wass of Idolator was complimentary of the song describing it as a "killer single". He did label Pitbull's lyrics "questionable" but are overlooked as he "injects enough humor into the song".[1] Steve Adams of the Winnipeg Free Press gave the song a lukewarm review, giving it two and half stars. He wrote that, compared to "Timber", "Wild Wild Love" was not "nearly as gratingly awful, but it's not anything amazing either".[2] Rolling Stone's Joe Gross only commented that Pitbull "doesn't sound entirely sure who [G.R.L.] are".[3]

Music video[edit]

The interior scenes of the music video for "Wild Wild Love" was shot in February 2014 at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles, California.[4] The scenes in the second half of the video were done at Viscaya in Miami.[5] The video was first aired on Pitbull's official Facebook page in 31 March 2014.
