Pitbull on tour with Enrique Iglesias
Snagging high-profile award gigs, releasing new music, and getting a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?
Yes, it was a fantastic 2014 for Pitbull, who back on February 25, 2014, released a new single titled "Wild Wild Love" featuring American recording artist group G.R.L.. It peaked at number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100, and that was the beginning of a wild, wild ride for the rapper.
By May, it was announced that Pitbull would host and co-produce a live New Year's Eve concert special from Miami for Fox, Pitbull's New Year's Revolution, on December 31, 2014. A month later, it was made official that Pitbull would be receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
On July 23, 2014, Pitbull released another single titled "Fireball", which features singer John Ryan. Around the same time, he announced his eighth studio album "Globalization," which was released on November 24, 2014. It debuted at No. 18 on the Billboard 200, selling 38,000 copies in its first week. Overall it has moved more than 100,000 units since its release.
Finally, Pitbull rolled through the end of 2014 as one half of one of the biggest tours of the year. That trek, in which Pitbull co-headlines with Latin pop crooner Enrique Iglesias, extended with dates starting in January 2015.
Rising artist J Balvin continued as the opening act in shows that kicked off January 28th in El Paso, Texas and rolled on with stops in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Oakland, Denver, Minneapolis, and more.
Around the world, the pit bull refers to a breed of dog with a widespread reputation for illegal fighting also hailed for its strength and athleticism. In pop culture, Pitbull is the man behind crunk – a Southern-flavored party rap that dominated urban radio at the turn of the century. In short time, the rapper, songwriter, producer and TV host has risen from appearances on Miami mixtapes to becoming one of the most influential Cuban-Americans in the music industry.
Born Armando Perez, Pitbull's stage name speaks to the hunger and passion he brings to his work. The son of first generation Cuban immigrants, he used those roots as inspiration at the start of his career. His freestyle skills put him on fast track to stardom, and in the late 1990's he was tabbed by Luther Campbell to appear on the single "Lollipop."
Pitbull would climb every stepping stone and knock down every wall put in front of him as he became a major player in the industry. He forged relationships with the likes of Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz, earning a slot on their double platinum album, "Kings of Crunk." That union culminated with Pitbull's debut single, "Culo," and to date he's got seven studio albums and two compilation projects to his resume. The most recent is 2012's "Global Warming," is his first on the RCA Records brand and features Shakira, Christina Aguilera, Chris Brown, Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias and other superstars.
