Global Warming

Last year, Pitbull became a dance-pop monarch with the chart-topping "Give Me Everything," and his seventh LP tries to keep that crossover elasticity rolling: "I ain't greedy, shar­in' is carin'/Especially when it's with Sharon and Karen," he raps lustily, building a cultural bridge on "Party Ain't Over." Mr. Worldwide interpolates "Take On Me," a-ha's 1985 New Wave banger, on "Feel This Moment," and his productions simulate the opulence of a Miami nightclub, with stomping eurozone beats that could just as easily be on an LMFAO record. Vocally, he's less an MC than a greeter or a party promoter – and every­one on the planet is on his guest list.
