Pitbull is having an amazing 2015. The Cuban-American helped ring in the New Year as host for Fox Networks in Miami. The Florida born son of Cuban immigrants performed at the Calibash urban music festival in January and concluded a joint tour with Enrique Iglesias in February. By March, he sold out a show to a crowd of 75,000 peoople in Houston. This past Thursday at the Premios Juventud Awards, he won best urban artist and also got a chance to burn Donald Trump all in the same night.
Just recently he was added to the roster for Megaton at Madison Square Garden. His second Spanish-language album in five years, “Dale“, was released on July 17, and has 3 1/2 stars from Rolling Stone already.
It was time. We had a bunch of records we were sitting on. DJ Chino and Georgie basically produced pretty much all the album and we had amazing features. I said, why not? And our first record, ‘Piensas,’ went No. 1 with Gente De Zona. Bottom line it was just time,” said Pitbull.
On Sunday, July 26 he will also get a chance to help close out the Pan Am games. Dale, lets go!
