This one was a VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY indeed, and literally made my Christmas that year. This song started out small in it's demo form - but roared like a lion in the clubs, on the charts, and just like it's "Electronic Jungle Mix" version starts out in it's intro! I originally recorded the demo in a basement in Eagle Rock in Socal, and laid down background vocal after background vocal. There was SO much work just in the demo version, I remember being physically exhausted after the sessions. But all that WORK (pun intended) was WELL WORTH "the sweat on my face" - just like my lyrics proclaim.
On the major remix releases, I had the honor of working with some really great DJ/Remix Producers like Love to Infinity, Mark Picchiotti, and Raul Rincon. They are known for working with s many greats like Madonna, Take That, Whitney Houston, Cher, Pet Shop Boyz, Kristine W, Celine Dion, Shania Twain, All Saints, Will Smith, Barbara Streisand, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Amy Grant, Sia, Kylie Minogue, and Michael Jackson - to name a few.

Written, arranged, produced, and performed by: Brian Anthony Co-production on single version by: Chris Noxx Property of Brian Anthony / Sogni Records–7 Entertainment, LLC. All rights reserved. ©copyright 2008-21 Mangiaremusic/BMI. All rights reserved.
April 10th, 2009 was the worldwide release of the song in the major motion picture.
"Worked UP!" was also licensed for worldwide release of DVD where Brian Anthony is featured on the packaging. Teaser Trailers for viral usage and commercial broadcasting were cut and deployed globally.
We made a major music video that had a production span of two entire days. First day was in DTLA in a warehouse that was very awesome. Looked abandoned and had a lot of graffiti in it that made the video super edgy. And the second day was filmed on the 20th Century FOX Lot...you can see images of that shoot here.
