What do you get when you put together two international superstars on one record? You get one international mega hit.
Produced by RedOne and Afrojack, ‘Get It Started,’ off Pitbull’s upcoming album Global Warming, scheduled to drop later this year, was leaked online and follows a similar formula to the smash hit ‘Give Me Everything,’ off his last LP Planet Pit.
Pit raps a short a verse over a piano intro making a reference to helping drop the New Year’s eve ball in Time Square, before the unmistakable voice of Shakira comes in leading into the song’s chorus.
“Everytime I look int your eyes/ I feel like I can stare in them for a lifetime.”
The EDM beat kicks in soon after and it’s an all out party in your headphones after that.
Mr. 3-0-5 avoids making any reference to Lindsay Lohan on this track, but does mention other celebrities such as Tom Cruise and Manny Pacquiao. I’m sure they won’t mind though.
No release date has been announced for the album Global Warming. However if ‘Get It Started’ is any indication, the album is definitely going to bring the heat.
