While Pitbull is busy greeting everyone ”Good Morning America!” at the crack of dawn, Mr Worldwide’s eighth studio album dropped today like a flamin’ fireball.
Globalization is as Globalization does! Mr Worldwide has earned himself this title which is reflected on the cover of his latest album. As Pitbull’s motto goes – “Don’t talk about it, be about it” Be it and THEN put it on the cover. With Pitbull’s face wiped out and replaced by a segment of the globe it reflects just how Pitbull IS globalization, conquered the world and doesn’t just ‘rap for his block but speaks to the globe’ producing music straight out of the ‘melting pot’ to cater for the mass audience market globally regardless of country, gender, race and age within.
Packed with a medley of styles and collaborations the album is outrageously powerful, sharp and diverse as ever taking us through eleven euphoric mesmerising tracks with his elite team of super producers.
Featuring Fireball, Celebrate, Wild Wild Love, Time of Our Lives and the official World Cup 2014 Anthem We Are One, just when we thought we may have heard the strongest songs on the album to come, Pitbull pulled out another handful of surprises from the bag.
“World is my block, the globe is my home” with that said Ah Leke featuring Sean Paul comes with a taste of EDM/dance mixed in with some ‘traditional’ heavy Miami hip hop style of beats coming out of Dade County with the old school Pitbull flavour. Bringing a bout of instant nostalgia and have you bopping your head in no time.
Along with the 24/7 grind, Pitbull is all about having fun and it was only a matter of time before a song with that particular title came to surface. With Fun featuring Chris Brown, Mr Worldwide shows us how they do it in the 305. Another hit that was heard faster by my hips than my ears and a guaranteed dance floor hit. Hooked from the intro, the song gave goose bumps from start to finish. With a blend of 80’s Jacko and sounds similar to the song Conga by the Queen of Miami who opened the early doors for Latin music on the mainstream global platform, Gloria Estefan. Transporting you to a carefree and fun state as the title suggests, may as well let loose and enjoy the song at a minimum dress code level but “don’t take it all off, keep your heels and thongs!”
When the sun goes up and drink goes down, who said the party only starts at night. It’s Christmas come early! We certainly can call Pitbull ‘Santa’ for giving us this gift of a song on Globalization. Listening carefully you can almost hear Day Drinking featuring Heymous Molly popping eargasms off amongst fans worldwide.
A Countrytwang mixed with a touch of laid-back and lazy reggae vibe, Heymous Molly keeps us captivated with a catchy chorus, keeping us hooked throughout while Pitbull slows it down to a more mellow chilled tempo getting “down, down with some Country grammar” but without compromising his signature filth that we enjoy so much (put your lips like a ring around my whoo!). An addictive song that will continue to play in your head once it’s finished and one which shines through the album.
In an exclusive interview last week when asked what Heymous Molly would like fans to take away from the song the response was “Let loose ‘n’ have fun with it. Crank it out loud at every sporting event TAILGATE because that’s what it’s meant for. And of course the beach”

Up next we have, Sexy Beaches featuring Chloe Angelides who wants to ‘go somewhere exotic, let the summer search her body and meet a sexy stranger in the lobby ( sounds good already!) and all the other shenanigans one would get up to on a carefree vacation. With some feint Afro beat tempo “sexy beaches, hotels!” Is what Pitbull would be up for.
Let go, surrender and just let Pitbull Drive you Crazy with Jason Derulo and Juicy Jin more ways than one with some old school smooth and slow Miami Bass flavoursas Pitbull takes it back again to his old-school hometown sounds.
Aay papi si,si! Look’s like someone’s gonna fall in love tonight-with this song at least!
This Is Not A Drill featuring Bebe Rexha, gives us something a little different with some heavy bass and low riding sounds
Wouldn’t expect anything less from Pitbull, howeverGlobalization has exceeded expectations. Now loosen up your body ’til you come undone, have some fun, put on Globalization. It’s my turn so I’m ‘Gonna pass another round to you and me and all these crazy mother f******’ to turn it up, let’s just do what the song says. But check out the reviews on more of the singles from Globalization below first!
