Where do you want to live? The answer is on Planet Pit!
Cuban-American music sensation Pitbull invites listeners to discover the new world of sounds he created for Planet Pit, his sixth album. Available on June 21st, the new album unites Pit's rapid-fire rhymes and billion-dollar beats with musical influences from around the world to create a one-of-a-kind sound.
His experiences growing up in Miami combined with his recent global success influenced the album's rich mix of styles, says Pitbull, whose given name is Armando Christian Pérez. "It embodies a bit of everywhere I've been," he says referring to his recent globe-spanning tours. "I'm trying to be the ambassador; the bridge builder who brings elements from all over the world and puts it all together so it sounds like nothing you've ever heard before."
Pitbull teams with Ne-Yo, Afrojack and Nayer for the new single from Planet Pit, titled "Give Me Everything." Already climbing the charts, the song is poised to pick up where Pit's multi-platinum smash hits "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)," "Hotel Room Service" and "Hey Baby (Drop It to the Floor)" left off. Like the star-studded single, the album is filled with pop music luminaries such as Marc Anthony ("Rain Over Me"), Chris Brown ("International Love"), and Kelly Rowland ("Castle Made of Sand").
To give Planet Pit its edge, Pit surrounds himself with many of today's hottest artists, including appearances by T-Pain and Sean Paul. To blend the album's diverse sounds into a seamless flow, Pit tapped top producers like David Guetta, Afrojack ("Something 4 The DJ's), RedOne, Polow Da Don and DJ Frank E. In fact, Pitbull's "Come & Go" marks the first time ever that super-producers Dr. Luke, Benny Blanco and Max Martin worked together with Pit. That's beyond hot.
