Latin artist Pitbull burst onto the scene with his debut album M.I.A.M.I in 2004 and before we knew it he was everywhere recording tracks with several big-name stars including Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Shakira.
These days, Mr. Worldwide is one of the most popular names in the music business with a slew of No. 1 hits with more than 5 million albums sold and 60 million singles sold.

Pitbull was born Armando Christian Pérez on Jan. 15, 1981, to Cuban emigrants in Miami Florida. He was raised in the city’s “little Havana” section and became interested in the Miami bass genre of pop music at a young age.
After graduating from Miami Coral Park High School, the rapper began focusing on his music career. The reason he chose the stage name Pitbull is because the animals “bite to lock. The dog is too stupid to lose. And they’re outlawed in Dade County. They’re basically everything that I am. It’s been a constant fight.”
Pitbull met rapper Lil John in 2002 and was featured on the Kings of Crunk album. In 2004, Pitbull released his first studio album and his success catapulted from there.
Mr. 305 has become so popular in the city where he grew up that his fans have petitioned for him to headline just about every major event held in Miami.
