Prepare thine fists for pumping: On July 20, MTV and Universal Republic Records will release [url id="http://www.mtv.com/shows/jersey_shore/series.jhtml"]Jersey Shore[/url] Soundtrack, a collection of songs inspired by the tanned-and-terrific hit series.
The club-ready first single off the album is "I Like It," a collaboration between Enrique Iglesias and Pitbull, which will be available on iTunes May 25. Other artists featured on the soundtrack include Lil Jon, LMFAO, Taio Cruz and Akon.
It's the perfect summer playlist, not to mention an excellent accompaniment to any and all G.T.L.-related activities, but if you want even more "Jersey Shore," a deluxe edition of the soundtrack will also be available, featuring not only the standard album, but a bonus second CD, packed with music inspired by the first season of the "Shore," including the show's theme, "Get Crazy," by LMFAO.
"MTV is excited to join forces with Universal Republic Records to bring the Jersey Shore Soundtrack to the show's fans," Amy Doyle, executive vice president of music and talent programming strategy, MTV brands, said in a statement. "From the clubs to the gym, there is going to be a lot of fist pumping and booty shaking going on this summer, and that's just at my house."
More info on the album (and exclusive promotional contests coming this summer) will be available shortly. The first season of "Jersey Shore" will also be available — completely uncensored — on DVD, the same day the soundtrack hits stores: July 20.
And, of course, the second season of the show, which follows Snooki, the Situation, JWoww, DJ Pauly D and the gang down to Miami's South Beach before returning to their now-famous house in Seaside Heights, will premiere on Thursday, July 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
Don't miss the Jersey Shore Soundtrack, available July 20. Season two of [url id="http://www.mtv.com/shows/jersey_shore/series.jhtml"]"Jersey Shore"[/url] premieres Thursday, July 29, at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. Be there!
