Pitbull’s single, “I Know You Want Me,” which was featured on the album, Rebelution, climbed to number two on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. Planet Pit, released in 2010, further established Pitbull as one of music’s most popular artists. Featuring the hit singles, “Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor)” and “Give Me Everything,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 charts, the album peaked at number seven on the Billboard 200 chart. Pitbull’s upcoming album, Global Warming, is set for a summer 2012 release. In addition to his solo work, Pitbull has collaborated with many top artists including, Lil Jon, Pharrell Williams and Jennifer Lopez, among others.
Pitbull’s critically acclaimed sixth studio album, Planet Pit, was named Best Party Album by Entertainment Weekly. The album’s knockout single, “Give Me Everything,” featuring Ne-Yo, Nayer and Afrojack, reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Top 40 Mainstream and Rhythm charts. His latest hit “Back In Time” was written exclusively for this summer’s upcoming blockbuster, Men In Black 3. Pitbull recently starred in the season premiere episode of VH1’s music documentary series Behind The Music and was spotlighted in the April Style Issue of GQ Magazine. As if that wasn’t enough, Pitbull won Male Artist Of The Year at this year’s Billboard Latin Music Awards and received the BMI Latin Music Awards President’s Award. In addition to his chart-topping success, the burgeoning businessman has his own line of premium, low-calorie Voli vodka and a partnership with Sheets, the dissolvable energy strip. These entrepreneurial ventures are the latest for Pitbull, who has also inked major sponsorship deals with blue-chip brands like Kodak, Dr Pepper and Bud Light.
