In April 2011, while working on his second studio album Haute Living, it was reported that Beatz was appointed global creative director for Reebok Classics.[3][4] In July 2011, Reebok and Beatz launched the Reethym of Lite campaign for Reebok Lite footwear and apparel collection.[5] Beatz said that he "directed, wrote the treatment" for the campaign.[3] Beatz chose the song "International Party" for the campaign, because "for me, the Reethym of Lite is an 'International Party' – it connects the sneakers being light, the rhythm of dance, music, art and style and the rhythm of the people".[4] Beatz further explained that “When I finished the record I knew it was a perfect fit for the campaign - it just felt right”.[4] The song was also going to be featured on the Haute Living album, but Beatz decided not to release the album, but instead release individual songs, saying:

"I don't wanna do the week thing -- I wanna put out every single as a movement. Right now I got 'International Party,' which is now the global campaign for Reebok. I got 'Rock'N'Roll,' me, Lenny Kravitz, Lil Wayne… I want people to feel every single like it's an album."[6]

Music video

Commissioned by Reebok, music video for the song, directed by Chris Robinson, was filmed at Downey Studios in March 2011.[4][7] Robinson said of the video that "it’s about connecting all the continents on the planet on the world stage".[8] Choreographer Hi-Hat selected dancers to appear in the video, including street dancers Lil Buck, Haspop, Destini Rogers, B-Boy L.L. Flex, Kelli Divincen, Daniel Graham, Duncan Tran and B-Boy Lil’ Bob.[4] Anthony Osei from Complex described the video as "high-powered and light scattering".[9] The video was released on August 1, 2011 and reportedly cost $1.4 million to make.[8][10]

Critical reception

Rap-Up wrote that the "feel good" song "boasts a rock-tinged beat" while according to MTV News the song is a "grinding, electro-hop track".[7][11] The Boombox described it as "electronic dance track that marks a stylistic departure from Alicia and Swizz' respective genres".[12] Writer for PopCrush opined that Beatz and Keys "seem to be out of their elements with this hyper dance track" adding that Beatz "could use some work on his rap skills" while Keys "phon[ed] in her vocals".[13]
