Pitbull's latest opens on the streets of Brazil, flipping a local dance hit into an EDM banger that could work anywhere on the planet. Taking his own advice, the Miami rapper never stops the party, pulling together a set of inspirational hip-hop, wedding-ready pop and even Florida Georgia Line-style country reggae. By the time he returns to Rio for "We Are One," this year's World Cup anthem, he seems like a real-life Atlas, carrying the globe on his shoulders without getting a speck of dust on his fine linen suit. Disagree? Take it up with Pit. "I know you think it's just rap," he challenges on the DJ Mustard-goes-disco jam "Fun." "Nah, baby."
