CHART REFLECTION. Pop cultural phenomenon Jersey Shore is hitting TV screens after summer. Originally premiering on MTV in December 2009, the fourth installment will take place in Italy. The new season will premiere on August 4 and according to Zap2it, “Fists are pumped, fights are staged, drinks are downed, tongues are enjoined in extreme closeup.” Not surprisingly, the cast was banned from filming at certain tourist hot spots. The Florentian mayor Matteo Renzi has forbidden Snooki & co from appearing near the tourist attractions such as the Uffizi and Boboli Gardens.
As WelcheMusic is a true music blog, we’re anxious to see what music will appear on the show. Last year, a Jersey Shore soundtrack was issued. Enrique Iglesias shot a alternative video of his “I Like It” and the set includes tracks from Taio Cruz, LMFAO and David Guetta.
