“2012 (It Ain’t the End)” is a song by British recording artist, Jay Sean, taken from the compilation album, Hit the Lights. It features Trinidadian rapper and labelmate Nicki Minaj, and is the album’s lead single. The song was produced by OFM production team J-Remy and Bobby Bass. It was released to US radio stations and as a digital download on 3 August 2010. The title is a reference to the 2012 phenomenon.

‘2012’ received mixed reviews by About.com and Digital Spy. Bill Lamb from About.com rated the single 4 out of 5 stars commenting on “The powerful vocal kickoff”, “Expansive world party atmosphere” and “Nicki Minaj on guest raps”. Lamb noted that the song was similar to that of “Down” and concluded that “2012 (It Ain’t the End) feels like a wise move for Jay Sean capitalising on the party success of his two prior hits “Down” and “Do You Remember” while moving into an even more expansive sound”. Robert Copsey from Digital Spy rated the song with 3 out of 5 stars, commenting that: “‘2012’ finds him recreating the USA-slaying synthpop/R&B sound of his breakthrough – and there’s no denying it’s catchy as an October cold. Of course, no one expects lyrical innovation from a song about partying, but lines like “We gonna party like it’s 2012” and “Party like it’s the end of the world” are so timeworn that even Nicki Minaj struggles to breathe fresh life into it”.

“2012 (It Ain’t the End)” debuted at number 50 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the chart week of 13 August 2010, later peaking at number 31. It peaked at number 34 on the US Pop Songs chart and climbed for a few weeks from its debut at number 92 to its ultimate height at number 23 on the Canadian Hot 100 . The single also debuted at number 40 on the ARIA Charts for the chart week of 26 August 2010 and at number nine on the UK Singles Chart, on the issue of 24 October 2010.

Lyrics

[Intro: Jay Sean & Nicki Minaj]
Ohh
Jay Sean (Jay Sean, Jay Sean)
2-0-1-2 (Nicki Minaj, Nicki Minaj), oh-yeah
It’s alright, oh, it’s alright

[Verse 1: Jay Sean]
You know what they say
Life ain’t always easy and every day
We’re survivors
So forget the day
It’s all about tonight; act a fool and start a riot, a-riot, be a rebel

[Pre-Chorus: Jay Sean]
Bottles poppin’ til we can’t stand
We keep it rockin’ til 6AM
New York to London over to Japan
Turn it up, turn it up, mash it up

[Chorus: Jay Sean]
We gonna party like
Party like, like it’s the end of the world
We gonna party like, like it’s 2012
You know that it doesn’t matter as long as we got each other
Turn it up, turn it up, mash it up
It ain’t the end of the world (Oh)
Gonna live like it’s the end of the world
Gonna party like (Oh)
Turn it up, turn it up, mash it up
It ain’t the end of the world

[Verse 2: Nicki Minaj]
Yo, similes, metaphors, and we pop pills
Sick flow, inundated with the doc bills
Work hard, now we know how the top feels
In the middle of the street doing cartwheels
Lot of them try to do it, but it’s not real
Wasn’t a rapper then I could’ve got a pop deal
White curls in a hot pink Hot Wheels
Lot of bottles and a lot of fruity cocktails
Uh, days of our lives
You wink, it goes by
So we’ll just get it with no edits
Anything goes, so no time for closed minds
And free my Lil’ Weezy
And let’s just get right
Young money, cash money in the building
Let’s go, the world ends tonight

[Verse 3: Jay Sean]
Have a drink with me
And let’s make tonight go down in history
In history, yeah
Lets make believe
It’s the last 24 hours and this whole world is ours
Eternally, eternally

[Pre-Chorus: Jay Sean]
Hey, bottles poppin’ til we can’t stand (Can’t stand)
We keep it rockin’ til 6AM (6AM)
New York to London over to Japan
Turn it up, turn it up, mash it up

[Chorus: Jay Sean]
We gonna party like
Party like, like it’s the end of the world (Like it’s the end of the world)
We gonna party like, like it’s 2012 (Like it’s 2012)
You know that it doesn’t matter as long as we got each other
Turn it up, turn it up, mash it up
I know, it ain’t the end of the world (Oh)
We gotta live like it’s the end of the world
We gotta party like (Oh)
So just, turn it up, turn it up, mash it up
It ain’t the end of the world

[Bridge: Jay Sean]
No, no, I’m not gonna follow
Anything that they say anymore
(Party like, like it’s the end of the world)
It’s never too late to start livin’
(Party like, like it’s the end of the world)
So let’s start it with here and right now

[Chorus: Jay Sean]
Party like, like it’s the end of the world
We gonna party like, like it’s 2012
You know that it doesn’t matter as long as we got each other
Turn it up, turn it up, mash it up
It ain’t the end of the world (Oh)
We gonna live like it’s the end of the world
We gotta party like (Oh)
Turn it up, turn it up, mash it up
It ain’t the end of the world

[Outro: Jay Sean]
The world
Because the world keeps spinnin’
The world keeps spinnin’ around
