Disappointed and disgusted at Billboard for taking such a cheap shot a national treasure with a disgraceful poll on Pitbull’s performance at the Grammys.

The performance of El Taxi can be viewed as breaking down 'ridgid' and 'standard' performance styles and injecting FUN into the awards show. Surprised it was seen thanks to it being credited with all the credits. The 'choice' of singing El Taxi may involve the fact that the song is actually on the album Pitbull won an award for -why not end with it?

A tasteless poll. For what? Attenion? Readership? Reaction? Could it be perceived as somewhat giving focus to the negative? Or instigating a situation? I fail to understand how the embarrassment of the Grammys angle comes from. If anything why not chose to see the Latin pride in Latinos on stage and winning Grammys -how about a positive spin there somewhere?

Pitbull may "be cool with it and act the fool with it" but the fans are unleashed and will and have been vocal in response to the poll and angle of the article. Congratulations to Billboard on unleashing the views and reactions of Mr Worldwide's fans and I suppose say a well done for having others talking about him in any context-any publicity as they say.... My perspective.


Thank you

What's that Farruko? That's right! Hoy Se Bebe because that's what we will be doing today! Crack open the Voli.

While Pitbull and the rest of his team are most probably still out there celebrating, proud Pitbull fans worldwide are waking up to the news that our Lil' chico  won a GRAMMY for Best Latin Rock, Alternative/Urban Album for "Dale". Let's Say it again. PITBULL AND HIS TEAM WON A GRAMMY! 

Pitbull continues to cause disruption and still making history."Dile tu hermamo, tu prima, tu tia" Because that's exactly what I did when I found out Pitbull had won. The Most Baddest Girls In Town with the Bad Man himself gave a dazzling performance with Robin Thicke, Joe Perry and Travis Barker for his new song and also with Sophia Vergara hanging out in a Taxi for El Taxi of course!

Causing a little disruption of my own, I say those derogatory views on social media that can't seem to grasp HOW Pitbull won a Grammy, let alone be able to perform there?  I take a leaf out of Mr Worldwide's book and say "I'm cool with it, act the fool with it" and advise maybe thinking outside of the box and tearing down that tunnel vision to appreciate his music for what it is, is an area to consider exploring. Because Pitbull isn't going anywhere. There is no escape!

Incredibly proud moment for us fans. A heartfelt thank you and congratulations to Pitbull and all involved in bringing us this exceptional album. All of Team Pitbull from all the amazing artists featured to our favourite Rock Star photographer, Greg Watermann who takes us around the world with Pitbull through images and videos to it's marketing by Yvette Medina (because I really enjoyed how this marketing guru brought this album to life before it was even born!) Executive Producers Robert Fernandez, and Mike Calderon (who is never 2 metres away from Pitbull) to Co-Producers DJ Chino, Jorgie Gomez, Publicity Tom Muzquiz  and more-the list goes on, just take a peek on the inside cover.  I'm feeling it for you, congratulations!

That's right world "This is Dale..The album!" and it's got a GRAMMY!

The Thicke, the Bad, the Perry and the Barker. No it’s not a new spin on a Clint Eastwood film but a reference to Mr Worldwide’s new song, Bad Man with Robin Thicke, Travis Barker (drummer Blink 182) and Joe Perry (Guitarist Aerosmith). Pitbull continues to shock and surprise with this song and range of talents featured on it.  I dare you to listen to this without bopping your head away or playing the air guitar.

“This is history in the making” Causing more ‘Climate Change’ and set to bring on more 2016
‘disruption’ in the charts as Pitbull crosses genres once again with rap and rock. Running straight in with his rhymes invading your ears and commanding attention with the drums and electric guitar from the first verse with a little reference to those who may no longer enjoy his style of music anymore. “They Say he don’t write no more…They say like Le Bron he ain’t got no heat no more…They say he ain’t  street no more…Like Jay (Z)  Say how SICK am I wish em HEALTH fo’sure!”

Cool with it and acting the fool with it, clearly not bothered by fans-turned haters and focused on growth and success in all forms- pa’lante! And then SLAM! “Went back to one of my own neighbourhoods and build a school in it” which has to be one of my favourite stings in his rhymes. Before going on to thank God,  his mum and Miami. Then a staple on Pitbull songs – his empire and women and telling them to  “come and get it girl” (you heard him Pitbull Girls- please form an orderly line!)

Following Travis Barker on the drums throughout and that guitar bridge three quarters of the way through with Joe Perry- wow!

A good guy at heart but has to be a bad man in an evil world (and a women’s world!). Although a purely ‘old school’ style album from Pitbull would be very welcome, however one can understand how Pitbull’s audience has grown and diversified since so it may not be so easy to go back, or as Mr Worldwide may say ‘don’t look back’. It’s 90% business as Pitbull says and that’s how it’s successfully going and growing since. Pitbull has EVOLVED and GROWN and opened up the ears of those fans who are willing to listen, enjoy his old music but open to try something new and stick around for more and enjoy.

Bad Man is rumoured to be a single from Pitbull’s upcoming album Climate Change and will premiere at the 58th Grammy Awards show on the 15th February. Check out the photo taken by the rock star photographer himself, Greg Watermann during a rehearsal..

I’m sure there will be one hell of a video to go with this at some point and see this as a hot summer festival tune- Think we need ALL you to front Glastonbury here in the UK with this one Pitbull (feel free to get Stephen Tyler in for a remix too!)

If you were in two minds about joining the Pitbull Cruise next year on the Norwegian Pearl Cruise Liner, chances are you would have made up your mind to jump on board and go and have a good time after watching Pitbull's new Freedom video.

Sailing on a long-loyal ship steering through Pitbull's career since the release of his very first album - and I could be speaking for quite a few similar passengers on the journey who are aware of Pitbull history, what made me really smile is watching the kids sitting on the rocks by the ocean at the beginning comparing trainers and talking how kids do. A mini-Pitbull in his long shorts and white vest being made fun of in jest by his friends responds "One day Lil' Chico gonna be big. Imma be kicking out one of those big boats one day, you'll see!" As he points to the Norwegian Escape Cruise Ship pulling out of the Port of Miami.

In the next shot, we could say fast forward to today and we see Pitbull on the deck of the Norwegian Cruise Liner taking his Freedom and being free doing what he wants and having a good time!

The beautiful Most Bad Ones and other great ladies look stunning flying flags from USA, Cuba, Brazil, Spain, China, Australia, Bahamas (where the Pitbull Cruise 2017 will be heading) 

I'm going to leave the proudest one with a shout out to Kristin for representing my country-the Union Jack flag of the UK (now just steer the boat towards us Captain Worldwide). Not only did the lovely ladies swish away on top of the deck waving the big flags in the wind but they had the bikinis to match.

As well as the obvious Norwegian Cruise Liner written in bold along with it's official logo, the video continues with more subtle and subliminal product placement and highlights how the features and facilities on board the cruise liner can be enjoyed. From the casino, dance floors to pools and spa...or go and have a good time like the flirtatious fun going on elsewhere between the mami who eventually puts her room key in the gentleman's suit pocket. (anyone seem the old Carry On Cruising show in the UK? This sounds like the classier version)

From port to starboard, the video captures that refreshing carefree and fun feeling with it's vibrant colours a 'commercial-video' video for the Norwegian Cruise Line.

Every day on the ocean is a good day too, hey Pitbull! We can get on board by joining Mr Worldwide and The Most Bad Ones on the 'After Dark Party' Pitbull Cruise. Don't forget your Party Patch!
