LAS VEGAS -- Nayer was one of the singing voices on Pitbull's No. 1 single "Give Me Everything," but she was flying solo on the blue carpet at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. Mostly, anyway.

The singer brought her dog Prince Einstein along for the ride. She was in good company, as Pitbull (the man, not the canine) and her future album producer Akon were also both nearby at the awards ceremony.

HitFix had the chance to catch up with her on her new album due this fall, on her collab with Afrojack and chat about her new single "Chicks Like You." She also sent her love out to her "favorite artist of the moment," Bruno Mars, whose music "puts you in a good mood."
