Bollywood actress-turned-singer Priyanka Chopra seems to have taken a leaf out of international singing sensation Jennifer Lopez's book to boost her musical career.

After her debut international single In My City feat. Will.i.am failed to top the charts, Piggy Chops thought it was a good idea to rope in rapper Pitbull for her second single Exotic.

Interestingly, Jennifer Lopez's collaboration with Will.i.am. had also failed to set the charts afire, and it was none other than Pitbull who gave Lopez her top three hits on the US charts in the last decade.

Alas! The formula doesn't quite seem to be working for the Indian beauty.

Though her Exotic is the number one song on the India iTunes list, it's nowhere in sight on the US charts.

As far as the video is concerned, it just doesn't live up to the hype generated on the social media. Shot in Miami, it shows a bikini-clad Priyanka frolicking in the waves and singing the verses in English with a few lines of Hindi thrown in.

What's surprising is that everything about the video — right from the locales, shots, lyrics, dance steps — seems amateurish.

While Priyanka manages a few hot moments, we wonder what Pitbull is up to as he tries to keep up with the Bollywood actress.

While the possibility of Exotic tasting success is debatable, the actress received her share of bouquets and brickbats on Twitter for her latest single album:
