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.

As most of you know, inexplicably I’m a huge fan of Pitbull. I don’t understand it myself, but I do love Mr. Worldwide. Definitely a guilty pleasure.

Naturally, the “Fun” singer signing on for Empire Season 2 excites me. He’ll play himself to perform the song “No Doubt About It” with Jamal (Jussie Smollett).

Pitbull is just one of numerous guest stars dropping by for the FOX hip-hop drama’s sophomore run. Chris Rock, Kelly Rowland, Marisa Tomei, Mariah Carey and Ludacris are just some of the big names popping up.

Speaking of the guest stars, a few of them are shown in a new trailer for the upcoming season. Check it out below. I’m so excited. Hopefully, Empire doesn’t suffer the dreaded sophomore slump.

Pitbull & Chris Brown Have ‘Fun’ In Miami

In: Donovan, Music

As much as I love Pitbull, the opposite can be said for Chris Brown. When I initially heard their collaboration, I didn’t want to like it due to Brown’s participation. But after months of hearing it and being in Miami just a couple of weeks ago, I’ve come fully around to “Fun.” It’s supremely catchy and excuse the pun, but fun.

Not surprisingly, for the accompanying music video, the two headed to Mr. Worldwide’s favorite city, Miami. The Gil Green-directed visual has no real narrative. Pitbull and Breezy just live it up in South Beach, in mansions and on yachts with a bevy of video vixens. That pretty much sums up my weekend a couple of weeks ago in the Magic City minus the hookers 😉 Check out the clip below.

I love a slow jam as much as the next person, but sometimes a girl’s just gotta dance. Finally, Ciara shares an uptempo track off her forthcoming Jackie album. And a killer one at that. Cici enlists not one, but two powerhouses. Frequent collaborators Missy Elliot and Pitbull throw it down on the Polow Da Don-produced track.

It’s nice to see Ciara switching things up. This has massive potential to become a hit this summer. I can already visualize the 29-year-old singer dropping some killer moves in the music video. Give “That’s How I’m Feelin’” a listen below and weigh in afterward.

As you all know, I’m always down for a Pitbull collaboration. My inexplicable obsession with Mr. Worldwide hasn’t passed yet 😉

This time around, the 34-year-old rapper joins forces with Ricky Martin. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe it’s the first time they’ve teamed up. Shocking, right?

Martin debuted “Mr. Put It Down” on New York City’s 103.5 last night. The English-language track is pretty bangin’ and features a club-ready beat. For the meantime, I only have a low quality version but once a better version pops up, I’ll update it. Check out the hot new single below and weigh in afterward.

UPDATE: Official Audio now embedded.
