Rapper, Singer-Songwriter & Producer

From Mr. 305 to Mr. Worldwide, Armando Christian Perez, aka Pitbull, rose from the streets of Miami to exemplify the American Dream and achieve international success. His relentless work ethic transformed him into a Grammy®-winning global superstar, business entrepreneur, and motivational speaker

Along the way, he’s been the subject of specials for CNBC, CNN, CBS, NBC, ABC and more; he has made appearances on "Empire," "Shark Tank," and "Dancing with the Stars." His music has appeared in Men In Black III and The Penguins of Madagascar, and he even had a starring voiceover role in the animated 3D movie Epic.

In addition to the United States, his sold-out world concert tours have taken him to North and South America, Europe and the Far East. He has also completed headlining tours in China and Japan. Along the way in his journey, he has co-headlined with Enrique Iglesias, spoken to thousands as part of Tony Robbins’ motivational seminars, and opened for Britney Spears in the U.K. and Europe during the summer of 2018.

Upon graduating high school, Pitbull turned all of his attention to music with a series of underground mixtapes. Merging urban with Cuban swing, pop flavors and a Caribbean bounce, Pitbull flaunts a style that’s indisputably his own. Releasing his full-length debut, "M.I.A.M.I," in 2004, followed by the success of 2006’s "El Mariel" and 2007’s "The Boatlift." In tribute to his father, he delivered his first Spanish-language album "Armando" in 2010. From 2011’s "Planet Pit," which debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200, spawned one of the best-selling singles of all-time — “Give Me Everything” feat. Ne-Yo, Afrojack, and Nayer. The anthem would be his first to top Billboard’s Hot 100 and go RIAA quintuple-platinum, moving over 8 million units globally. Pitbull solidified himself as a superstar entertainer, selling out arenas and stadiums all around the world.

Pitbull hosted the American Music Awards two years in a row – 2013 and 2014. He received the honor of co-writing the 2014 FIFA World Cup o cial song and delivered a show-stopping performance alongside Jennifer Lopez and Claudia Leitte in São Paulo, Brazil, seen worldwide during the opening ceremony. He has also received numerous accolades throughout his career, including his own wax figure in Madame Tussauds Orlando; Miami awarded him a key to the city; and he received a star in Celia Cruz Plaza on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
