Pitbull Heats Up Summer with ‘Global Warming’ Album

Pitbull is still heating up the charts with his Chris Brown-assisted single “International Love,” and he’s not cooling down anytime soon. Less than a year after releasing Planet Pit, the Miami rapper is readying his next project.

Global Warming, Pitbull’s seventh album, is due later this summer. It will be preceded by the single “Get It Started” featuring Colombian hottie Shakira.

Mr. 305 explained how the album’s title relates to the environmental crisis. “Obviously it’s something that is affecting us every day in our lives,” he told 91.7 The Bounce, “But more than anything, I feel that [my] career has been global warming because a lot of people are like, ‘Wow, look at him now. He’s heating things up. That guy’s everywhere.’

“It’s like, ‘No, we’ve always been here.’ It’s kinda like global warming. It’s always been here, now people are just starting to figure that thing out.”

Pitbull has also penned “Back in Time,” the theme song for the Men in Black III soundtrack, and is featured on Jennifer Lopez’s new single “Dance Again.”
