Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, NY – With two singles quickly climbing the charts, Pitbull has signed with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Music Group through his Mr. 305, Inc. imprint. The relationship will not only involve recording, but also touring and branding opportunities.

Pitbull’s current Ultra Records single, “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho),” is presently No. 13 on the Rhythm charts and is the follow-up to his hit single "Krazy" which featured Lil Jon and went on to sell over 700,000 downloads. Pitbull’s digital download success just earned him a nomination in the upcoming Billboard Latin Music Awards in the newly created category – “Latin Digital Download Artist of the Year.”
While ascending the charts with one smash single, Pitbull’s has another hit in the works – the recently released “Blanco” featuring Pharrell, is the first single from the original motion picture soundtrack for Fast & Furious 4 (Interscope/Star Trak), released March 31st. The Paul Hunter-directed “Blanco” video premieres this week and features Pitbull alongside Pharrell and Chad of The Neptunes.

“I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho),” "Krazy," and “Blanco” are anticipated to be featured on Pitbull’s debut PGM/RCAMG release, Rebelution, scheduled for a September 1st, 2009 release. The album will be executive produced by superproducer Jim Jonsin (Lil Wayne, T.I.) and will also feature production from Jonsin, alongside Lil Jon (Ciara, Usher), Mr Collipark (Soulja Boy), Play N Skillz (Lil Wayne, Chamillionaire), The Neptunes (Britney Spears, Justin, Jay Z) and others.

"Being an artist who comes from an independent mindset, I was skeptical about signing with a major label," Pitbull says. "But being that Bryan Leach and I have shared success in the past, combined with the fact that we both come from the TVT school of hard knocks, I know that Polo Grounds and RCA/Jive Label Group will be the perfect fit for ‘Mr. 305’. Barry Weiss’ success with that same indie spirit only reinforces what I know - we’re about to make history."
