It”s good to be Pitbull. The Cuban-American rapper is sipping white wine in a all white hotel suite in Los Angeles, flanked by a few members of his posse, as he runs through a string of interviews to promote his new album, “Planet Pit.”
The set, which debuts in the Top 10 on this week”s Billboard 200, is the party project of the summer-chock full of club bangers featuring Pit and his friends, Ne-Yo, Marc Anthony, Kelly Rowland, Chris Brown, Enrique Iglesias and T-Pain.
The massive success of first single, “Give Me Everything” featuring Ne-Yo, Afrojack and Nayer, has come quickly on the heels of Pitbull”s raspy raps appearing on a number of the past year”s hottest tunes: Iglesias”s “I Like It,” Usher”s “DJ”s Got Us Fallin” In Love” and Jennifer Lopez”s comeback single, “On the Floor.”
Although not dressed in one of his trademark fancy suits, Pitbull, nevertheless, cuts a dashing figure, full of easy charm and swagger, as he talks about the making of the new album and life on Planet Pit in the embedded video in this post.
