Despite dropping some solid tracks including “Freedom,” “FREE.K” and “Messin’ Around” featuring Enrique Iglesias, his Climate Change era has been a major disappointment for Pitbull. None of the aforementioned tracks have cracked the Billboard Hot 100 Top 40. Hell, only “Messin’ Around” has broken into the Top 100. And that only peaked at No. 64.

The 35-year-old rapper appears to be changing his strategy for his latest offering off the album. Believe it or not, he’s not sampling a hit from the 80s or 90s. SHOCKER!!! Instead, he goes with an original uptempo EDM urban-tinged jam with Flo Rida and Lunchmoney Lewis assisting.

Since I’m inexplicably obsessed with Mr. Worldwide, I’m a fan of the track. Give it a listen below. The chorus is infectiously catchy.

Pitbull is no stranger when it comes to soccer tournaments. He previously collaborated with Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leite on the 2014 FIFA World Cup Song, “We Are One (Ole Ola).” This time around Mr. Worldwide teams up with Becky G for the 2016 Copa América Centenario which celebrates its 100th anniversary this year and being hosted by the United States.

“Music is the universal language, and soccer is the world’s sport,” said Pitbull in a statement. “So it’s an honor to team up with Copa América Centenario and an upcoming superstar like Becky G, who I’m very proud of.”

As expected, “Superstar,” is an upbeat track that features hip-shaking Latin beats and some Spanish rhymes from Pitbull. Meanwhile, Becky G absolutely slays during the extremely catchy hook. It’s much better than their previous collabo, “Can’t Get Enough” back in 2014. Give their latest duet a listen below.

“I grew up watching the Copa América with my grandfather, so to say I’m excited to perform at this world-class soccer event, in my home country, is an understatement,” Becky said in a statement.

Despite dropping some solid tracks including “Freedom” and “FREE.K,” his new album, Climate Change, was shaping up to to be a giant bomb for Pitbull. It appears Mr. Worldwide has turned around his fortunes with his latest track, “Messin’ Around.” The catchy number is gaining traction on radio and with a newly-dropped visual, it should climb even higher on the charts.

“Messin’ Around” is the umpteenth collabo between Pitbull and Enrique Iglesias. The track’s chorus heavily borrows from REO Speedwagon’s 1981 smash, “Take It On The Run.” The music video is exactly what you would expect from the 35-year-old rapper. It’s jam-packed with scantily-clad women jumping around and acting all sexy while taking Polaroid pictures of each other. Check it out below.

Pitbull Goes Rock With New Single ‘Bad Man’

The strategy behind his forthcoming album, Climate Change, has been a little puzzling. The first taste, “FREE.K” barely received any promotion despite being a killer track. It didn’t even get a music video treatment.

The follow-up, “Freedom,” also another potential hit, just received a visual last week but looked more like a commercial for NCL Cruises than promoting his new single. I’m curious to see what Pitbull has in store for his newest cut.

Mr. Worldwide ditches sampling 90s track to embrace his inner rocker for “Bad Man.” He enlisted Aerosmith’s Joe Perry and Blink-182’s Travis Barker to jam out on the rock-tinged single. Robin Thicke joins in on the fun by providing vocals for the chorus. It’s not my favorite cut from Pitbull, but it’s nice to see him mixing things up. Give it a listen below.

There’s product placement, and then there’s product placement. Pitbull brings it to a whole new level for his latest music video. It’s more of a Norwegian Cruise Line commercial than it is a promo for Mr. Worldwide’s new single, “Freedom.”

The 35-year-old rapper, flagged with bikini-clad women dressed to represent different countries, shows off all the features of the cruise liner. He’s practically a cruise director in the clip. Not the visual I was expecting for the killer track which samples the 1990 track “I’m Free” by Scottish group, The Soup Dragons. I wanted and expected more.

Check out the NCL commercial music video below. For some reason, I feel like going on a cruise all of a sudden 😉

Pitbull is clearly obsessed with the 90s. Following his sample of Adina Howard’s “Freak Like Me” for “FREE.K,” the 34-year-old rapper looks to the same decade for his latest single. Rather than pick a pop smash or R&B gem to sample, he goes alt rock. Mr. Worldwide is full of surprises.

Freedom” is the latest taste off Pitbull’s forthcoming LP, Climate Change. The track samples the 1990 track “I’m Free” by Scottish group, The Soup Dragons. Using it is a bit unexpected but a pleasant surprise. With his reworking of the chorus, it actually works, quite well at that, for today’s contemporary music landscape. Give it a listen below.

Mr. Worldwide’s love affair with classic jams continues. He previously scored a monster hit with “Feel This Moment which featured a sample of A-ha’s “Take On Me.” His new track interpolates another beloved smash from yesteryear and gives it his signature touch.

FREE.K” is the first taste of Pitbull’s forthcoming tenth studio album, Climate Change. The future dance anthem uses a sample of Adina Howard’s sexually-charged 1995 hit, “Freak Like Me.” Remember that awesome jam? I’m sure I’m not the only one who fondly remembers that 90s classic.

Give Pitbull’s new offering a listen below where he gives shout outs to business women of all kinds, even FLOTUS. The 34-year-old rapper definitely has another hit on his hand.

Pitbull is just one of the high-profile guests set to appear on the second season of Empire. Naturally, Mr. Worldwide is playing himself. Love him but Meryl Streep he is not 😉

He’ll pop up on the show to sing a duet with Jamal (Jussie Smollett) titled “No Doubt About It.” FOX just debuted the track written by Ne-Yo and it’s fantastic. This could legitimately land in the upper tier of the Billboard Hot 100.

The network also released another track “Ain’t About The Money” featuring Smollett and his on-screen bro Yazz. Check out both tracks below. Empire returns to FOX on September 23.
