iLov 305!

Clever, very clever Armando! Interest and investments in Mangos Tropical Cafe and The Sugar Factory. Take some parts of both and create a NEW baby with class- iLov 305!

Varied menu with innovative desserts like smashing a chocolate pinata ball to gigantic cocktail glasses to industrial sized fish bowls. Dancers in feather head pieces in a carnival like theme to a man playing his bongo's. All this dropping on and off the bar and walk way areas above. Not forgetting the mini palm trees.

Classy, stylish and party ambience - qualities much like it's owner!

A rose wall beaming neon lights 'Hello Gorgeous' to an image of Pitbull on every pillar and post not to let anyone forget who's gaff this is!

An extensive food menu of his very own Voli 305 Vodka drinks.

You can even catch DJ Africa, DJ Laz to Pitbull's very own DJ Chino on some nights here. Let's take a stroll through the new neighbour of the Versace house on Ocean Drive, Miami.

Remember, what happened there, never happened!

Another shot and it’s Pitbull with Bria Lee in the mix

One Shot - Fat Joe opens the intro, two shots and Pitbull slides in! It’s the remix of One Shot by Bria Lee featuring Fat Joe with Mr Worldwide jumping on the track.

One Shot has an edgy soul and Jazz meets old school Hip Hop vibe with a vocal-touch reminiscent of Amy Winehouse at times. Bria’s arresting vocals demand attention and keep us captivated throughout the song by the powerful story being told.  A story about substance abuse, unhealthy relationships. Showing how these combined have a knock on effect mentally and leave some stuck in a vicious and toxic cycle.

Cleverly written, the verses are catchy and easy to follow. Each line in a sequence of number of shots in both contexts and a different picture of the story. Tune those ears in in as Bria sings “My-My-My Broken record plays” where it soon becomes apparent that it’s a playful spin on emulating a broken record stuck in a repetitive motion. Adding further subtle reflection on being caught up in an unhealthy repetitive pattern.

Signed to Republic Records and managed by The Latin Prince, Bria Lee brings distinctive flair and flavour with a hint of quirkiness. Purple Clouds being the first single released last year and now teaming up with heavy weights in global music Pitbull and Fat Joe for One Shot. Rising star Bria is certainly making her presence felt and causing a stir as this refreshing new talent from New York is beginning to shake things up.

“Having Fat Joe be a part of ‘One Shot’ was pretty epic, but now to have Pitbull hear the song and want to be a part of it is a perfect way to blend soul with a street edge. I love how Pitbull’s flow adds an international vibe. I hope you enjoy the ‘One Shot’ Remix!” Says Bria as the new mix premiered exclusively on Billboard. 

As Pitbull moves in after the first verse, dissect and pull apart Pitbull’s rhymes and we can strip off various levels of depth. From talking about the domination and street life in Miami back in the day as snippets of Pitbull’s rap flow 

“..Little Havana where them boys wear guerrilla and clips for bananas……

“But I try see them try to scam us
I remember when they used to call…..”
…”So they got me all Bahamas
One Shot- Dominican power where they flip everything…”

Pitbull goes on “Fat Joe open the door, Big Pun he took over, Then I slid in light skinned Cuban Hova” Taking listeners on a walk down music history of how Fat Joe paved the path and the legendary late Big Pun took over. Very fitting as One Shot has the original sample of Beatnuts ‘Off The Books’ (1997) which featured Big Pun and where today Fat Joe now takes over a similar flow on Bria Lee’s One Shot. Very ‘New York’ with it being the home town of Fat Joe, Big Pun and also Bria Lee who has stepped into the music scene representing the Big Apple.

Pitbull goes a step further and slides in stating himself as the Cuban ‘Hova’. In a reference to Jay Z, also a fellow New Yorker. The work of an artist whom Mr Worldwide also admires.

Not one to miss an opportunity for marketing his own brand (why not?), Pitbull closes with brazenly directing the audience to the location of his new venture on Ocean Drive, off 11th Avenue “I’m on Ocean and 11th, iLov305” Taking it back home to Miami where Pitbull’s bar and restaurant chain iLov305 opened earlier this month on Pitbull’s birthday 15th of January. iLov305, an establishment where it goes without saying, is Voli 305 Vodka infused and whatever happened there, didn’t happen.

Addictive rhymes, a must listen and bet you catch yourself singing along to this remix with Pitbull on it.

Pitbull warms us up for the Brazil Carnival and encourages us to Muevelo Loca a little earlier this year (Boom Boom!) In another strategic move on both sides, Mr Worldwide drives more traffic to Jay Z’s Tidal, the platform on which the official video Muevelo Loca was released earlier today.

Directed by personal favourite Pitbull video creative wizard, David Rousseau, the video embodies everything Pitbull – SIMPLY A GREAT PARTY.

Pitbull goes through a few costume changes in this video from all white shirt, bottoms en route to the carnival and rocking what possibly looks like a Limitless Legends cap to getting on the bus with a green Brazil vest and then a yellow Brazil football shirt. Whilst waving the Brazilian flag in one hand a mic in the other.

From the streets of Salvador, some capoeira, the party goers and back to Pitbull and Claudia Leitte with their float surrounded by an ocean of fans soaking up the energy brought to the carnival by this duo. No doubt it the party wouldn’t be complete without a few bottles of Voli 305 on board and blatant advertising of his own brand. Although Pitbull may have had a few too many and mistaken possibly Claudia’s shoe for his cell phone?

Vibrant, energetic, switched on party mode the video captures the essence of this annual event with mass global appeal with a lot of fun!

Que RRRRica!
