"Hotel Room Service" is a song by rapper Pitbull released as the third single from his latest album, Rebelution. The song features samples of "Push the Feeling On" by Nightcrawlers. It was released to both iTunes and mainstream radio on June 16, 2009.[1] It has 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 gucci stuff" is a line from Jay-Z's "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)"; "Pull that g-string down south" is taken from The Notorious B.I.G.'s "Nasty Girl" and the line "We at the hotel, motel, holiday inn" is a line in the song "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugarhill Gang. On September 16, the official remix to "Hotel Room Service" was released, which features The Pussycat Dolls lead singer Nicole Scherzinger.

Music video

The song's official music video was released on August 10, 2009 by Pitbull's YouTube channel Pitbull Music. Jim Jonsin and Feisty from For the Love of Ray J make cameo appearances in the video as does Sagia Castañeda, who appeared in the I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho) video as well. To date the video has received over 6,000,000 views.[2]

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!'[3]

In the UK many radio stations including BBC Radio 1 and 95.8 Capital FM are not even playing the original and are playing the remix version.

Critical Reception

The song received generally favourable reviews with David Jeffries from Allmusic saying "nothing ... could fill a dancefloor as quickly as the ... stunner ... 'Hotel Room Service', which triple mashes an old-school hit ('Rapper's Delight'), a 2 Live Crew classic ('One and One'), plus a house music giant (the Nightcrawlers' 'Push the Feeling On')."
