Cuban-American rapper Pitbull is one of the hottest Latin urban artists in today's music world. His voice is behind some of today's most popular Latin music hits, including "Give Me Everything" and "Rain Over Me." His popularity is such that almost every major Latin star is seeking to work alongside Pitbull these days. Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, and Marc Anthony are just some of the artists that have already worked with him.

Pitbull's own music evolution has defined much of his current appeal. Gradually, Pitbull has developed a new sound that cleverly combines his unique raspy voice and Spanglish rapping flow with the vibrant beats of dance music. If there is someone who currently rules the dancing floor, it is Pitbull.

"Rabiosa," With Shakira

For her hit album Sale El Sol, Shakira invited Pitbull to record one of the featured songs. The song was "Rabiosa," and it became one of the hottest songs of the entire CD. "Rabiosa" perfectly fits  Pitbull's Urban style, thanks to its combination of Merengue and Dance music. An ideal song for a night of dancing, "Rabiosa" offers a nice duet between the two Latin music superstars.

"I Like It," With Enrique Iglesias

Pitbull also took part in the popular album Euphoria by Latin Pop superstar Enrique Iglesias. The song "I Like It," featuring the Cuban-American rapper, was one of the most popular hits on an album that gave Enrique Iglesias several music awards nominations in 2011. "I Like It," which keeps a strong Pop flavor, is enhanced by Pitbull's unique flow in the middle of the song. Just like "Rabiosa," "I Like It" is one of the most popular dance songs featuring Pitbull.

"Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor)," With T-Pain

There are several dance songs on Pitbull's hit album Planet Pit. One of them is "Hey Baby (Drop It To The Floor)," featuring the popular rapper and producer T-Pain. This song has a defined Urban flavor and offers a nice duet that combines the robot-like voice of T-Pain with the raspy vocals of the Cuban-American rapper. Mr. Worldwide got it right with this one.

"I Know You Want Me"

The single "I Know You Want Me," has been one of the most popular dance hits produced by Pitbull. From the very beginning, this single evokes the feeling of Miami, Pitbull's hometown. "I Know You Want Me" is, in fact, a reference to the pàrty flavor that surrounds that city and in particular its popular street, Calle Ocho, where the famous Little Havana is located. This song offers a great beat and has enjoyed much success on party nights all over the world.

"Give Me Everything," With Ne-Yo, Afrojack, and Nayer

"Give Me Everything" is one of Pitbull's best dance songs, found on Planet Pit, one of the best albums of 2011. It offers an ideal sound for a dance party. As usual, Pitbull's raspy voice and unique flow give the song a very nice Urban flavor that enhances the whole melody. 

"Bon Bon"

Borrowing the brass sections from Renato Carosone's legendary hit "Tu Vuò Fa' L'Americano," Pitbull's "Bon Bon" is another of the best dance songs produced by the Cuban-American rapper. The rapping in Spanish adds a nice flavor to one of the most popular songs from Pitbull's album Armando. The single "Bon Bon" received a nomination in the Best Urban Song category of the 2011 Latin Grammy Awards.

"Rain Over Me," With Marc Anthony

Mr. Worldwide got it right again with "Rain Over Me." The contrast created by the voices of Pitbull and Marc Anthony is fantastic. Pitbull brings to this track the best of his Spanglish flow, which he blends quite well into this single that is strongly defined by the beats of Dance music. "Rain Over Me" is by far one of Pitbull's best dance songs.
