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

’. Barry Weiss’ success with that same indie spirit only reinforces what I know - we’re about to make history."
