Tyga Brings the Heat in Tulisa’s Beach Party-Themed ‘Live It Up’ Video
British singer Tulisa is getting the party started right with her summertime video 'Live It up' featuring Young Money rapper Tyga. The song, produced by hitmaker Rico Love, will hit the iTunes store on Sept. 9.
Tulisa (full name Tulisa Contostavlos) is part of the "British Invasion" that has swept the United States within the past year. She joins fellow Brits like the Wanted, Rita Ora, Conor Maynard and Cher Lloyd who traveled across the pond looking to crack the pop market stateside. So does Tulisa have to chops to make here in the states? After watching her video, it's an unanimous yes for us.
In the Colin Tilley-directed clip, Tulisa is the host of a fun-filled luau on a Hawaiian beach and everyone is getting lei-ed. The party gets livelier by the minute as we see people dancing to the bumping sounds and fire twirlers are heating things up with their blazing-hot performance. "We should pop more champagne this year than last year / We should live like it's the only life we get, there's nothing else past it," Tulisa sings over the bongo-driven, dancehall-tinged banger.
The 24-year-old songbird also parades on the beach in several different titillating outfits including a colorful pink bikini with a yellow-colored fishnet top that covers her naughty bits. There's also shots of Tulisa wearing a pink bra and flora capri pants that are perfect for the nighttime beach party scenes.
Rapper Tyga crashes party and adds his luxury rhymes to the track. "Skinny fly n---a / Big icey watch / The Rolls gone wild / The car ain't got no top," he spits. "I'm into ballin' and being cocky and showing off / Single-handily killing y'all, don't get involved."
Overall, Tulisa's video is a good introduction for people who not familiar with her. If she stays focused (and sticks with Rico Love), Tulisa has a shot of making some noise on the music charts.
If you're sad that the summer season is almost over, take a listen to Tulisa's party anthem 'Live It Up' and raise your red cups in the air. YOLO!
