It seems like these days every great pop or rap song that come out has one thing in common: Pitbull. I don’t hate it. I’ve been a fan of the whole hispanic rap sound for a while. I went through a serious Sean Paul phase in college.
Earlier this week I heard Pitbull’s new Men In Black song on the radio and it reminded me that I pretty much like every song he puts out. In addition of Pitbull’s catchy, fun songs, the man knows how to put himself together in the morning. This dude can wear a suit. He brings a whole new level of classiness to rap that his predecessors have attempted but never achieved to his level of success. Even though he uses a lot of the traditional rap narratives in his lyrics, I feel like his lyrics are continuing to get more mature. Also the fact that he collaborates with artists across the board, I think shows that he’s a nice, friendly kind of guy. I saw his episode of “Behind the Music” and his mother basically confirmed these suspicions.
My top five recent Pitbull jams:
1. Back in Time (MIB theme)
2. International Love (feat. Chris Brown)
3. Give Me Everything (feat. Ne- Yo)
4. Dance Again (with J.Lo)
5. I Like How it Feels (with Enrique)
My top five older Pitbull jams:
1. Go Girl
3. The Anthem
5. Shake (with Ying Yang Twins)
PS- Make sure to watch J.Lo’s new video “Dance Again.” The girl knows how to pick her boyfriends.
