I feel that this is historic and a wonderful opportunity to launch 2101 / Capitol in this way."
According to Capitol Records Chairman & CEO Steve Barnett, "Jennifer Lopez is a true superstar, and her pairing with RedOne has resulted in an incredible first single with 'Live It Up.' I am happy to be reunited with Jennifer and all the more thrilled that she's working with RedOne and is now a part of the 2101/Capitol family."
