Artist of the Week: Pitbull

The rapper re-teamed with his 'Give Me Everything' collaborator Ne-Yo for a new single 'Time of Our Lives' that recently hit No. 11 on Billboard Hot 100 and No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Rap Songs.

AceShowbiz - Pitbull and Ne-Yo know how to make hit songs. The duo first teamed up for 2011's "Give Me Everything" that also features DJ Afrojack and singer Nayer. Lifted off the Miami rapper's "Planet Pit" album, it went on to become his first single to land at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100.

Pitbull and Ne-Yo then reunited for another collaboration called "Time of Our Lives" from the 34-year-old superstar's 2014 effort "Globalization". The song became the most successful single off the LP as it recently hit No. 11 on the same chart and No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Rap Songs.

The club-ready, catchy track was produced by Dr. Luke, Cirkut, Michael "Freakin" Everett and Lifte. Its music video came out in late December, centering on a family with financial problems that finally finds a way to celebrate the New Year and "have the time of their lives."

In addition to the success of his single, Pitbull has at least one more reason why this year is going to be a big one for him. Last year, it was revealed that he was among the names set to be inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Mr. Worldwide, who will receive his star later this year, said of his new accomplishment, "It goes to show you hard work pays off, and patience, passion, and perseverance equal success. The best part is that this is just the beginning."
