11/20/07 - LatinRapper.com news
Respected MC Pitbull is
joined by a star-studded crew of artists and producers on the
November 27th release of his highly anticipated third studio
album "The BoatLift" (TVT Records). Pitbull teams up with
GRAMMY award winning producers Play-N-Skillz (Chamillionaire -
"Ridin") for his first single "Secret Admirer" feat R&B
sensation Lloyd. The single is racing up the
charts having held a steady position on the Rhythmic Top 40
charts for the past 5 weeks and steadily climbing.
In addition, Pitbull recently shot the video for the single,
directed by up and coming director David Russeau. The video
features cameos from Fat Joe and Steven Bauer who starred as
Manolo Ribera in the cult classic, Scarface.
"The Boatlift" showcases Pitbull's lyrical prowess as he
crusades through 18 tracks penning clever and captivating
visuals on each song. Pitbull has created an incredibly
diverse album ranging from R&B influenced sounds with his hit
single "Secret Admirer" feat Lloyd to techno/dance inspired
tracks like "The Anthem," as well as songs like "Midnight"
that are heavily mainstream/pop influenced and down south
inspired tracks like "Dookie."
"The Boatlift" boasts standout appearances from Trina, Jim
Jones, Don Omar, Twista, Lloyd, Frankie J, Young Berg, Trick
Daddy, Fabo of D4L and Young Boss. Pitbull teams up with Trina
and Young Boss on the hypnotic club banger "Go Girl," which he
also filmed a video for in Miami. Other album notables include
"Sticky Icky" produced by Lil Jon, featuring Jim Jones, "Fuego"
feat Platinum artist Don Omar, produced by Mr. Collipark and
the Twista assisted "Candy Man" produced by Echo.
"Most immigrants that came to this country came through some
type of boat lift, said Pitbull. "This is my way of taking
everybody on a ride through my eyes; this is my boatlift -- my
way of bringing them to freedom through the universal language
of music. Now let's ride!"
Pitbull's last album "El Mariel" produced numerous radio hits
including the club anthem "Bojangles," and the hit rap single,
"Ay Chico." In 2004 Pitbull surpassed gold status for more
than 600,000 copies sold of his debut album "M.I.A.M.I.: Money
Is A Major Issue" in the United States. The feat gave Pitbull
the biggest-selling bilingual hip-hop debut since Cypress
Hill's 1991 self-titled debut, and put him in the rare
category of Latino rappers who have achieved major success at
English-language radio. Bolstered by such breakthrough singles
as "Culo," "Dammit Man," and "Toma," Pitbull's debut – as well
as its highly-successful successor remix album "Money Is Still
a Major Issue" – have made Pitbull an unstoppable voice in
