Watch Elvis Costello’s hyped-up performance of “Pump It Up” at the Jimmy Kimmel Live.
It seems like this 1978 Costello classic is making rounds again as the iconic riffs of the song are definitely been used inside rising musician Olivia Rodrigo’s, “Brutal.” But, in a true rock & roll fashion, Costello wants no part of the songwriting credits; telling people that it’s normal to take “bits and pieces” of a song and make it all on his/her own.
But that doesn’t mean that he won’t ride on the wave of this newfound success. Just a few days ago, he visited Jimmy Kimmel Live and performed a bilingual version of “Pump It Up” with Juanes at his side. The Spanish-English clash is what you need to hear right now!!
