Pitbull Draws Biggest Crowd Yet for This Summer’s Today Show Concert Series

Planet Pit Achieves Critical Mass with Raves in The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, The Washington Post and More


Los Angeles, CA – July 6, 2011 – International music sensation Pitbull just off an unprecedented national television launch including The Voice Finals and the biggest crowd yet for this Summer’s Today Show Concert Series continues to dominate the charts this week as “Give Me Everything,” the second single from his critically acclaimed album Planet Pit, climbs to #1 on the Billboard Top 40 Mainstream and Rhythm charts. A global phenomenon, the smash hit went #1 in the UK and reached the Top 10 in over 15 countries.

The growing success of “Give Me Everything,” which features Ne-Yo, Afrojack and Nayer, builds on the momentum started by the album’s first single, “Hey Baby (Drop It to the Floor),” a Top 10 smash at Rhythm and Top 40 last fall. The massive popularity of these singles has fueled anticipation for the arrival of his sixth studio album Planet Pit, which was named “Best Party Album” by Entertainment Weekly. The New York Times said “Pitbull, now more important than ever, and more popular, thanks to his irrepressible new album” and The Washington Post said “Planet Pit is its own future Greatest Hits package.”

Tailor-made for summer’s sunny days and endless nights, the album pulses with relentless rhythms and rapid-fire rhymes, featuring contributions by pop music luminaries such as Planet Pit’s next single with Latin Megastar Marc Anthony in “Rain Over Me”, others include Jamie Foxx (“Where Do We Go), Chris Brown (“International Love”), and Kelly Rowland (“Castles Made of Sand”). Planet Pit also includes appearances by some of today’s hottest artists, including T-Pain and Sean Paul, plus top producers like Dr. Luke, David Guetta, Max Martin and Afrojack.

In just two years, Pitbull has compiled an impressive record by notching four Top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100: “Hey Baby,” “Give Me Everything,” “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)” and “Hotel Room Service.” Pitbull has also demonstrated his massive crossover appeal with “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)” and “Hotel Room Service.”

In addition to the highly anticipated release of Planet Pit, Pitbull just released his first application for the iPad. Produced by Roba Interactive, the app will provide fans with interactive liner notes that include high-end audio and video, interviews, text, photos and more. Later this year, Pitbull and his live band will tour U.S. arenas with Enrique Iglesias and special guest Prince Royce. The tour begins September 22 in Boston and will visit nearly 20 cities before ending October 22 in Miami for what promises to be a triumphant homecoming show for Pitbull.
