The American rapper and musician, Pitbull, who is collaborating with actress Priyanka Chopra in her upcoming music single ‘Exotic’, maybe now teaming up with Jazzy B next. According to sources, a music recording company based in Punjab and UK has approached Pitbull to team up with Jazzy, and he is in the process of giving his consent in principle.
“Since Jazzy has been recording songs with our music label for a few years now, the music company decided to approach Pitbull to join Jazzy. The kind of music Jazzy does is immensely popular in the UK and Canada besides pockets of India. So, if Pitbull also comes on board, the music producers think it should be an international sellout,” says the source.
This information hasn’t been confirmed yet, so stay tuned!
On Friday, April 12th, “Mr.Worldwide” (Pitbull) gave Somerset Academy Chapel Trail a surprise visit to encourage students in light of FCAT week. The sound of screams could be heard far and wide as Pitbull entered the gymnasium in which students were assembled. Following a performance by Somerset’s Varsity Dance Team, excitement continued to build as Pitbull took the floor and stepped up to the mic. Although he did not perform a song, he did better by making an inspirational speech. He said that he wouldn’t be where he was today without people who believed in him and he let students know that he believed in them, too. Despite not being able to stay very long, Pitbull left a great impression with the words that he did say about how we, as young people, can do anything with perseverance!
Here is an excerpt from Veronica Vega’s latest interview with SingersRoom.com
Singersroom: You’re about to film the video for “Wicked” with Pitbull. Can you tell a little sneak peek of the video concept?
Vega: It’s really high energy. The song is really witty, Pitbull’s talking really slick. I think it’s a great combination. We’re both Cuban and we’re both from Miami, it’s like we created a great chemistry. The video is the same, it definitely shows the Cuban Latin culture, not necessarily Cuban and Venezuelan, but I just feel like it’s something that’s gonna be new for Americans and even people in Latin America or across the pond to be able to be like “oh wow!” to be able to be put on game about new dances and new things that we don’t necessarily do here, but are a little bit wild. So the video to me is wild and colorful.
Here’s a photo from the “Wicked” video shoot:
You can hear Veronica Vega’s “El Papel (Paper)” Below:
Armando Pérez, better known as Pitbull, paid a surprise visit to his former elementary school on Friday morning.
The Cuban-American rapper gave a short motivational speech to Sylvania Heights Elementary’s 3rd-, 4th- and 5th-grade students, who are gearing up to take the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) 2.0 in the next few weeks.
The Sylvania Heights Principal Amor Reyes called the rapper’s motivational speech “inspiring.” She added, “He spoke about the success that comes when a person perseveres and works hard. He also promised the kids that he would return and do something special for them.”
Pitbull is set to be featured on the CBS educators & music artist special, “REAL CHANGE – Artists for Education” on April 23, 2013. Showtimes are not listed at this moment. If you will not be able to watch the program, the show will be airing online at officedepot.com/realchange.
Updates – 4/3: If you miss the show, you will be able to stream it for 5 weeks on LiveRealChange.com! And also, follow the official LRC facebook page for releases of exclusive content leading up the show.
From USA Today: A handful of music’s heavy hitters have come together to share their school memories and encourage viewers to help pay for school supplies by donating to teachers or “adopting” a classroom. Pitbull, Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Quincy Jones, Lady Antebellum and Jason Mraz will be on hand to take viewers back to their old lockers, pay homage to their favorite teachers and yes, perform a few tunes on the TV special, “Real Change — Artists for Education”.
EPIC tells the tale of teenager Mary Katherine (Amanda Seyfried) who is transported to a magical land inhabited by little leaf people, talking slugs, and birds that you can ride – where she must join forces with a band of weird and wonderful creatures in order to save their world, and her own.Pitbull will be playing the voice of Bufo. He will be joined by Colin Farrell, Josh Hutcherson, Christoph Waltz, Jason Sudeikis, Steven Tyler, Aziz Ansari, Chris O’Dowd and Beyoncé.
Epic will be released here in the US on May 24 (the trailer above is from the UK YouTube page). You can view more international release dates here.
Pitbull is Miami’s favorite son. Cab drivers can tell you the son of Cuban immigrants’ entire history growing up in a single-parent home in Miami. “Pitbull is a man of the streets,” one American-Cuban cab driver told us. “Nobody gave him nothing. He did it on his own.” A few weeks later at a reception overlooking the Miami skyline at the Franchise Expo South, an Argentine franchise litigator with Greenberg Traurig sang the performer’s praises as well. Pitbull’s appeal, he said, is his ability to use Spanglish so artfully. The hip-hop artist/entrepreneur resonates with the U.S. Latino population, a group that is becoming more and more attractive to marketers, as well as with Latin Americans, a lucrative market south of our borders. He even receives several mentions in author Tom Wolfe’s epic novel about Miami, “Back to Blood.”
As a blue-eyed, fair-skinned teen, Pérez earned the name Pitbull because during the rap battles at underground clubs in the South, he challenged the black rappers with way more street cred than he had in rapid-fire word fights, and came out the victor. In an HBO special on prominent Latinos, he joked that while pit bulls are illegal in Miami, he has papers. Now—at least in his music videos—he’s a lover, not a fighter.
