Pitbull's collaborative track with Latin sensation Shakira "Get It Started" has been leaked onto the web for fans' listening pleasure. The dance song opens with an introduction by the "Krazy" rapper before the Columbian songstress shows off her powerful vocal chops in the chorus.
"To these rappers I apologize/I know it ain't fair/Only ball I drop, New Year's Times Square," so Pitbull raps on the opening. "The world is mine/Sixth sense, I see a seventh sense/Now baby, let's get started for life." Shakira sings her lines, "Everytime I look into your eyes/I feel like I could stare in them for a lifetime/We can get started for love."
Produced by RedOne and Afrojack, "Get It Started" reportedly will be included in Pitbull's forthcoming studio effort, "Global Warming", which is expected to be released in the U.S. later this year. In the song, the "Hotel Room Service" rhymer also makes reference to several famous names, including Tom Cruise as well as boxers Manny Pacquiao and Muhammad Ali.
In addition to preparing to release his upcoming album, Pitbull has reportedly just joined the voice cast of an upcoming animated movie from the creators of "Ige Age" and "Rio". As for Shakira, the "Hips Don't Lie" singer is busy working on her latest album which is due to come out sometime before the end of 2012.
