Weezerpedia:Today's featured song/October 28, 2009
"Can't Stop Partying" is the fourth track from Raditude. It was written by Rivers Cuomo and Jermaine Dupri and features guest vocals from Lil Wayne. The song was released in demo form on Alone II in 2008.
Jermaine Dupri wrote the lyrics, and gave them to Rivers Cuomo because he claimed, as the Alone II liner notes say, that "the rock world and the hip-hop world were really the same: they were both all about partying."
The song was first performed live at the Alone II Jam Session before the album was released. It was Rivers' personal pick for the set list.
Later, the song was performed live for Stereogum.com by Cuomo, Dupri, Ryan Key of Yellowcard, Jose Galvez of Ozma, Derek Grant of Alkaline Trio, Sean O'Donnell of Reeve Oliver, Greg Vail (a saxophonist), and Ricky Sans of Melee. A flutist also played.
While headlining a festival in Korea in the summer of 2009, Weezer performed a new arrangement of the song which featured a rock drum beat, distorted guitars, a new bridge and slightly altered lyrics.
