Some good and breaking news happened this morning as Pitbull promised yesterday.
Move over Ryan Seacrest and Dick Clark! According to Billboard.com and various other news sources, Pitbull will be ringing in the new year in Pitbull-Party fashion (DJ’s, musicians, the whole 9 yards) with his VERY OWN show titled: “Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution“.
The current schedule of the show will start live from Miami on New Year’s Eve at 8 PM/EST to 10 PM. Then will return to countdown the new year at 11 PM to 12:30 AM.
“The world needs to get ready to un-mute New Year’s Eve, because we are taking the party from the Big Apple to the Pineapple. New Year’s Eve is officially in Miami and hosted by yours truly, Mr. Worldwide. P.S. Whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but whatever happens in Miami never happened, Daleee!” said Perez in a statement announcing the news today.
Pitbull’s production company, “Honey I’m Home” will work together with Endemol LIVE producing the broadcast. After inking a deal with Endemol USA earlier this year, the show will serve as their first (of many) collaborations with him, as well as the Endemol LIVE’s first live special.
A statement from CEOs Cris Abrego and Charlie Corwin:
“Pitbull’s New Year’s Revolution is the start of a new tradition, as people around the globe gather for the biggest celebration of the year. This special will be unlike anything else you have ever seen on television and we are thrilled to be partnering with Honey I’m Home,” said Abrego, with Corwin adding: “Launching Endemol Live reflects a larger plan to continue to evolve Endemol North America into a studio for next-generation success and profitability. We look forward to partnering with Fox on our first Endemol Live presentation.”

On Friday (as always), I will be posting the full Billboard and iTunes charts stats.
Pitbull’s last concert of the year truly went out with a bang at last night’s new years eve concert in Miami. Not only did Pitbull bring the party to the 305, but he also brought along a couple of his closest musician friends, like Enrique Iglesias.
Pitbull guaranteed that 2014 was going to be an even BIGGER year than before as he launched his fragrance line and made the ANNOUNCEMENT (via the Dick Clark Rockin’ NYE segment performing “Echa Palla”) that he will be performing at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil (and unconfirmed news says that there will also be an official song in the works)…
Pitbull tweeted today:
Welcome to 2014 the year where we will bring music, sports and the world together #WeAreOne

If you missed the show, you can check out some show clips and footage below including Pit’s Rockn’ New Years Eve segment where he performed a combination of songs including “Timber” live from Miami!

I am very sorry to inform the fans (especially those who were to attend the concert), but due to the bad snow storm in New York City, Pitbull will NOT be able to make it to tonight’s B96 Jingle Bash. His flight was delayed at first, then ultimately cancelled. Pitbull (and members of his crew) made these statements via Twitter:
— Pitbull (@pitbull) December 15, 2013

Pitbull is truly Mr. Worldwide and is taking over the globe in more ways than we can ever imagine!

In an exclusive interview with Women’s Wear Daily, Pitbull said: “Being raised by nothing but women, my mother was my father. I was always around these great-smelling products and I would see the way [his mother] would mix them up and wear different outfits. I was always intrigued by fragrance.”
The advertising for the scents will be promoted on ad screens on Amazon Kindles starting TODAY and later on Amazon’s Vine Product Reviews Program. Don’t count out Pitbull’s social media just yet! The products will be shared through “engaging storytelling using branded profile, covers and banners; content including, content tabs and in-video product placement; links and mentions, and custom content such as original video ads”.
The Pitbull Empire just keeps getting bigger and bigger!
