"Wild Wild Love" is a song by American rapper Pitbull featuring American recording artist group G.R.L. The song was released February 25, 2014 and serves as the lead single off of Pitbull's eighth studio album Globalization. It was written by Pitbull, Ammar Malik, Dr. Luke, Max Martin, Alexander Castillo Vasquez, Michael Everett (co-composer) and Henry Walter with the production handled by the latter five. Coincidentally, G.R.L. member Natasha Slayton is the daughter of world renowned comedian Bobby Slayton, known as the "Pitbull of Comedy"[2].

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".[3] 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".[4] Rolling Stone's Joe Gross only commented that Pitbull "doesn't sound entirely sure who [G.R.L.] are".[5]

Commercial performance[edit]

"Wild Wild Love" peaked at number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it Pitbull's seventeenth top 40 hit; it became G.R.L.'s only single to impact the chart before the group disbanded in 2015. It sold 767,000 copies in the US as of March 2015.[6] The song was also a commercial success in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Finland, New Zealand, Norway, Scotland, Slovakia, Sweden, and the United Kingdom .

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.[7] The scenes in the second half of the video were done at Viscaya in Miami.[8] The video was first aired on Pitbull's official Facebook page on 31 March 2014.
