Making global music, 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. He grinded it out on the road and touched down everywhere from the Far East and South America to Europe and all across the U.S. His success continued as he went on to release additional chart-topping platinum hits, including “Timber” [featuring Ke$ha], “Fireball” [featuring John Ryan] and more. On March 17, 2017, Pitbull released his 10th full-length album, Climate Change, after wrapping his second headlining arena run – “The Bad Man Tour,” named after the Climate Change hit single performed on the 2016 Grammy Awards.
Pitbull also continues to forge a presence in the business world with his vodka Voli, fragrance line “Pitbull,” a strategic alliance with Playboy Enterprises and brand partnerships such as Norwegian Cruise Line. His Honey I’m Home production company has partnered with Endemol Shine North America for three New Year’s Eve Revolution live TV shows on FOX, and Pitbull’s Globalization (Ch. 4) on Sirius XM features some of the most prominent DJs from around the world.
