As much as the music of Pitbull defines a generation and soundtracks a global movement, the words and actions of the man born Armando Christian Pérez exemplify a commitment to inspiring both personal and universal revolution. As much as he elevated himself out of the streets and on to the international stage, he also heeded the call to grow from an entertainer to an ambassador of change. As much as listeners proudly recite the words to “Time Of Our Lives” or “Give Me Everything,” they also fervently quote his equally unforgettable aphorisms “turn a negative into a positive” and “dale,” his signature phrase that encapsulates Pitbull’s belief that anything is possible.
As a result, he entrenched himself at the forefront of cultural, social, education, and popular conversations, bringing his brand of inspiration, influence and impact worldwide.
Igniting his career in 2001, he utilized the platform around him to effect change from day one. At the same time, Pitbull extends his musical legacy in 2019 with a Latin opus entitled, LIBERTAD 548. Thematically, it reflects his penchant for breaking down barriers of all kinds, culture and genre, alike. The title references the courageous rescue of 548 Cubans who Pitbull’s father, Armando Sr., helped reach libertad (freedom) as part of the 1980 Mariel Boatlift. The album includes the red-hot Latin-powered hit “No Lo Trates” with Daddy Yankee & Natti Natasha and “3 To Tango.” He continues to push himself as an artist, coming together with none other than Blake Shelton on the country swing of “Get Ready,” among a blockbuster track listing. The full-length album was released independently under his own Mr. 305 Records, LIBERTAD 548 represents the next chapter for one of the most prolific runs in the history of the music business.
Over the course of ten full-length albums, Pitbull’s single sales have exceeded 80 million and YouTube views burgeoned past 15 billion by 2019. In addition to hundreds of gold and platinum certifications internationally, he has performed to concert audiences worldwide. Recognized for his talents, he has garnered GRAMMY® and Latin GRAMMY® awards. Moreover, superstars of all stripes and styles have sought him out for collaborations, including Jennifer Lopez, Chris Brown, Shakira, Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin, and Kesha, to name a few.
A consistent headliner, he has not only performed for millions of fans worldwide, but he also took the stage at Planet Hollywood in 2015 for his Time Of Our Lives Las Vegas Residency, which ultimately resulted in multiple return engagements every year until its climactic close in 2019. In addition to the United States, his sold-out world concert tours have taken him to North and South America, Europe and the Far East. He has also completed headlining tours in China and Japan. Along the way in his journey, he has co-headlined with Enrique Iglesias, toured with Britney Spears in the U.K. and Europe, and spoken to thousands as part of Tony Robbins’ motivational seminars.
His influence seamlessly extends to television and film as well, including receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, his own wax figure at Madame Tussauds and making his impressions in concrete at the original location of the historic Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Various specials and features about Pitbull have aired on CNBC, CNN, CBS, NBC, and ABC. He has personally popped up on Empire, Shark Tank and Dancing with the Stars. He lent his music to Men In Black III and The Penguins of Madagascar and contributed the original “Ocean to Ocean” to Aquaman. In 2018, he scored Gotti, which starred none other than Academy Award® nominated legend John Travolta. He voiced characters in the animated feature films Epic and Ugly Dolls.
As always, the GRAMMY®-winning independent global superstar, education advocate, business entrepreneur and motivational speaker represents the possibility of revolution and freedom in 2020 and beyond.
