About Play Hard

"Play Hard" is a song by French DJ and record producer David Guetta featuring vocals from American singers Ne-Yo and Akon. It was released on 15 March 2013 as a single from the re-release of Guetta's fifth studio album, Nothing but the Beat (2011). This is the second collaboration between Guetta and Akon since "Sexy Bitch" in 2009. All three artists co-wrote the song along with Frédéric Riesterer and Giorgio Tuinfort, both of whom produced the song with Guetta. Akon's vocals were written and recorded at Sonic Vista Studios in Ibiza in July 2012. The song samples the 1998 Eurodance song "Better Off Alone" by Alice Deejay and "In My Dreams (XXL Remix)" by Noemi. "Play Hard" peaked at number six on the UK Singles Chart, thus becoming his fourteenth top 10 hit in the UK as a lead artist. It also charted within the top 10 of the charts in several other countries including Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Luxembourg, Poland, Scotland, Slovakia, South Korea, Spain and Switzerland; as well as the top 20 in Australia, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and New Zealand.

Hey, said a hustler's work is never through
We makin' it 'cause we make it move
The only thing we know how to do
Said it's the only thing we know how to do

Work hard, play hard
Work hard, play hard
We work hard, play hard
Keep partyin' like it's your job

Work hard, play hard
Work hard, play hard
We work hard, play hard
Keep partyin' like it's your job

Come on baby and drop it
Scrub that floor and just mop it
Show these gangsters how you pop lock it
Don't care what you got in your pocket
I peep the way that you rockin'
Flip that thang thang don't stop it
Wanna I just bang bang and pop it
While the club crowded just watch you (work it out)

Got a gang of cash and it's goin' all on the bar (now work it out)
And it's going fast 'cause I feel like a superstar (now work it out)
And you may not have it, I might just broke the law (now work it out)
It's your turn to grab it, now make this whole thing yours (now work it out)

Hey, said a hustler's work is never through
We makin' it 'cause we make it move
The only thing we know how to do
Said it's the only thing we know how to do

Work hard, play hard
Work hard, play hard
We work hard, play hard
Keep partyin' like it's your job

Work hard, play hard
Work hard, play hard
We work hard, play hard
Keep partyin' like it's your job

Some pressure that we can push
Ladies can't get enough
Got my fitness, I'm looking buff
And all my people with me, I trust
Holdin' down for my city
If they askin' you, I'm not guilty
Only thing that I'm guilty of is making you rock with me (work it out)

Got a gang of cash and it's goin' all on the bar (now work it out)
And it's going fast 'cause I feel like a superstar (now work it out)
And you may not have it, I might just broke the law (now work it out)
It's your turn to grab it, now make this whole thing yours (now work it out)

Hey, said us hustler's work is never through
We makin' it 'cause we make it move
The only thing we know how to do
Said it's the only thing we know how to do

Work hard, play hard
Work hard, play hard
We work hard, play hard
Keep partyin' like it's your job

Work hard, play hard
Work hard, play hard
We work hard, play hard
Keep partyin' like it's your job

Hey, said us hustler's work is never through
We makin' it 'cause we make it move
The only thing we know how to do
Said it's the only thing we know how to do

Work hard, play hard
Work hard, play hard
We work hard, play hard
Keep partyin' like it's your job

Work hard, play hard
Work hard, play hard
We work hard, play hard
Keep partyin' like it's your job
