iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party 2013: A Five-Part Guide, From Pitbull to Icona Pop
Suit up for the second annual iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party and catch some rays at the world-famous, anything-but-subtle Fontainebleau Miami Beach.
It's all going down this weekend. And because this wet 'n' wild bash is Clear Channel's baby, we'll be gettin' a poptastic lineup loaded with superstars and megahits.
So if you can get that ass and tummy as tight as this list of headliners, you're basically guaranteed the best pool party ever.
This iHeartRadio throwdown will come "Alive" when Los Angeles trio Krewella hits the poolside stage. Don't worry about hopping in the pool, though. Because sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf, along with their dude Rain Man, will have y'all sweaty and wet faster than you can say "Killin' It." They'll be running all over the stage, singing and gyrating and droppin' mad bass bombs. Representing Chi-town, Jahan, Yasmine, and Mr. Man play hard. And no doubt, their genre-bending brand of electro-house-step will have you ragin' and ready for more. Definitely get to the party in time to "Come & Get It."
It doesn't matter how many times we hear this Swedish duo's megahit summer anthem -- we don't care, we love it. And though it may sound a little cheesy, that's exactly how you'll feel once you catch these sweethearts in action. No doubt, Icona Pop is one of the current scene's most energetic acts, bringing a fresh edge to pop music. Besides, what more could you ask for on a beautiful sunny day than a perfectly carefree soundtrack and two gorgeous ladies getting real on some turntables and samplers?
Damn, you ain't gonna get no sleep (or maybe we should say "No Beef"), because right after Icona Pop, your booty will immediately begin bouncing to the deep beats of heavy-hitting Dutch DJ superstar Afrojack. As soon as this tall piece of man meat hits the iHeartRadio decks, he'll "Take Over Control" and get y'all begging, "Give Me Everything." He is one of the most recognizable EDM producers in the world, with massive mainstream hits featuring pop giants, including Will.i.am, Chris Brown, Ne-Yo, and even our hometown hero Pitbull. And since this is the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, you never know who might hop in the deep end with Mr. Jack to do a little sing-along.
Oh, holy glitter bombs, this party officially became a shit show! And we mean it in a good way! Because, just in case, by this point in the iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party, you haven't already been raging dangerously hard for hours on end, pop music's most lovable drunken mess is gonna stagger acrosss the poolside stage to "Blow" the tops off the girls and the roof off this sucker. Yes, Ke$ha is "Sleazy" and she is a "Warrior." So you know she's gonna put on a hell of a show. Go in hard, but try not to get too "Hungover" from her set, because there's still one more headliner, and it's kind of a big deal.
Yeeeoooh! It's Mr. Worldwide come home to the 305. And even if he does continue to make insane remix choices, there's still no other man in Miami-Dade who can rock a party like the one and only Pitbull. He's a hometown hero, and sure, kickin' it across the globe is nice, but he's going to bring it hard and hot as hell for the city where he was "Born-N-Raised." Expect bro to straight "Shut It Down." And hopefully, he goes "Back in Time" for some of that old "Miami Shit." We wanna hear some "Dammit Man," papi!
