Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, NY -- 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,” Kia Shine “So Krispy”) 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 urban music.
