Fresh from the huge success of her debut No.1 single Young, UK superstar Tulisa returns with a second surefire smash hit Live It Up, released through Island Records/All Around The World on September 9th.

Written and produced by US hitmaker Rico Love (Usher, Beyonce, Chris Brown), Live It Up is set to be one of this year’s huge summer club anthems.

The track tips its hat to Tulisa’s musical roots, delivering a blend of urban flavour and slick vocals sprinkled over a dancehall influenced groove. Loud sirens boom over a catchy chorus, that entices everyone to ‘Live It Up’.

Lyrically the track talks of good times with friends and enjoying life, with Tulisa adding ‘if you don’t that’s your loss’.

American rapper Tyga (part of the Young Money collective home to Drake and Nicki Minaj) delivers a stellar feature on the track.

The track is the second single to be taken from Tulisa’s highly anticipated debut album, due for release later in 2012.

Tulisa has been recording the album in both the UK and USA with the cream of the world’s top producers including The-Dream (Rhianna, Mariah Carey), Toby Gad (Beyonce, Fergie), Rico Love and legendary songwriter Diane Warren, Whitney’s smash hit award-winning song-writer.

Tulisa achieved massive success as a member of N-Dubz, without question one of the most culturally significant groups in contemporary British pop music.

More recently she won over the hearts of the British public on The X Factor in 2011 with her warmth and honesty on the panel.

Tulisa went on to win the show with band Little Mix, the first girl group ever to reach the final.

2012 has seen Tulisa step back in to her role as X Factor judge alongside continuing her musical assault on the charts.

This summer will see Tulisa play a string of summer dates including The Wireless Festival, GuilFest and V Festival. She is currently putting the finishing touches to her autobiography, out in the Autumn.

Tulisa has just made an alternative music video for her new single Live it Up, filmed on Samsung Galaxy smartphones by competition winners who took part in a Phones4U promotion.
