Pitbull ft. B.o.B - Across The World

Tags: Pitbull
Jim Jonsin

In his most recent interview with DJ Z, Pitbull let us all in on his simple yet damned-near-foolproof strategy for success in today’s unforgiving music industry: just drop hits, hits, and more hits.  In addition to moving albums, that tactic makes unauthorized leaks less of a liability and more of an opportunity.  Across the World is a case in point; leaked last Wednesday, the cut has now been selected as the official follow-up to Rebelution single number four, Hotel Room Service.  Does the track have what it takes to score Pit another chart smash? You’d better believe it!  With an understated, genuinely catchy sung hook and verse by buzzmaking ATLien B.o.B (aka Bobby Ray), a crisp eight-bit beat by Jim Jonsin, and, of course, the Latin-rap heavyweight’s crowd-pleasing rhymes, this wistful ode to the international grind has a bubbly appeal few will be able to resist.  After five singles, listeners should know exactly what to expect from Pit’s latest full-length—if you’ve got a taste for hip-hop ear candy of the street or club-oriented variety, pick up your copy of Rebelution when it hits record stores and online retailers September 1st.
