Pitbull has topped the charts with No. 1 hits in more than 15 countries, 9 billion YouTube/VEVO views, 70 million sales and 6 million album sales. His relentless work ethic transformed him into a Grammy-Award-winning global superstar and entrepreneur. He has been the subject of specials for CNBC, CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC and more, in addition to appearances on “Empire,” “Shark Tank” and “Dancing with the Stars.” His music has appeared in “Men In Black III” and “The Penguins of Madagascar,” and he even had a starring voiceover role in the animated 3D movie “Epic.”
Pitbull releases his tenth full-length album, “Climate Change” this fall, after wrapping his second headlining arena run – “The Bad Man Tour,” named after the “Climate Change” hit single featuring – and performed on the 2016 Grammy Awards with – singer Robin Thicke, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry and Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker.
“Climate Change” also includes the singles “Messin’ Around” feat. Enrique Iglesias, and “Greenlight” feat. Flo Rida & LunchMoney Lewis, both of whom also appear in the Gil Green-directed video filmed in Miami. “Climate Change” features many other superstar and burgeoning musical guests: Jennifer Lopez, Prince Royce, Jason Derulo, Stephen Marley, R.Kelly, Austin Mahone, Leona Lewis, Kiesza, Stephen A. Clark and Ape Drums.
Upon graduating high school, Pitbull turned all of his attention to music with a series of underground mixtapes. Merging hip-hop with Cuban swing, pop flavors and a reggaeton bounce, Pitbull flaunts a style that’s indisputably his own. Releasing his full-length debut, “M.I.A.M.I.” in 2004, followed by the success of 2006’s “El Mariel” and 2007’s “The Boatlift.” In tribute to his father, he delivered his first Spanish-language album “Armando” in 2010.
Pitbull’s hard work yielded 2011’s “Planet Pit,” which debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard Top 200 and spawned one of the best-selling singles of all-time, “Give Me Everything” feat. Ne-Yo, Afrojack, and Nayer. The anthem would be his first to top Billboard’s Hot 100 and go RIAA quintuple-platinum, moving more than 8 million units globally. Pitbull solidified himself as a superstar entertainer, selling out arenas and stadiums all around the world.
Pitbull’s 2013 “Meltdown” EP gave the world “Timber” featuring Ke$ha, No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 for three weeks straight, six-times platinum, and accumulated global sales surpassing $8 million as the sixth best-selling song of the year. The 2014’s “Globalization” boasted hit “Fireball” featuring John Ryan and the platinum “Time of Our Lives” featuring Ne-Yo. Always remembering where he comes from, his second Spanish-language album, “Dale,” buoyed some of his biggest international songs, including the gold-certified, “Piensas” and “El Taxi” and the platinum “Como Yo Le Doy,” VEVO-certified for views in excess of 100 million.
Pitbull is also making history in the business world. His deal with Endemol North America includes his production company, Honey I’m Home and 2017 will mark his third annual New Year’s Eve special on FOX. Pitbull’s 24/7 commercial-free Sirius XM channel “Globalization” has become the platform’s growing channel following its 2015 launch.
