New Music: Pitbull f/ Kelly Rowland & Jamie Drastik – ‘Castle Made of Sand’

Pitbull and Kelly Rowland

Pitbull may be known for getting the party started, but the Miami rapper gets serious for a moment on “Castle Made of Sand,” the DJ Frank E-produced cut from his new album Planet Pit (June 21). Mr. 305 salutes his mother while acknowledging his father’s absence on the introspective song. Kelly Rowland sings the uplifting hook and Pitbull’s artist Jamie Drastik spits a verse.

“It shows another side of me. But yet it has that big pop rhythmic feel to it,” Pitbull told EW.com. “I think that when that hits the radio, people are going to look at me in a whole different light.”

    Amazing song. Incredible. Kelly is OMG beautiful vocally.

    Best thing i’ve heard in a long time.
    Pitbull has made an incredible song here.

    Hope its the next single.

    So I take it from that quote that he plans to release this as a single? If so, this is a good look for both him and Kelly because this will be a hit I think.

  35. Haters Stay Pressed!!

    LMAO at Everyone going in on Pit Bull! I do think he sucks as a rapper, but hell, he has been hella successful so far so clearly he is doing something right. He makes really catchy songs with some dope ass hooks! It’s secret to his success is obvious!

    Anywho, my girl Kelly sounds beautiful! Her vocals are on point & she definitely makes the song! It’s good to see her getting herself out there and collaborating with hot artist.

    This will probably be a hit if released.
