Pitbull‘s Global Warming has leaked — it must have something to do with the rising tides caused by climate change. The rapper’s newest LP, which features guest spots from Christina Aguilera, Chris Brown, Usher, Jennifer Lopez, The Wanted, Enrique Iglesias and Havana Brown, is mostly what fans of his clubby hip-pop have come to expect, so don’t be surprised when it’s blasting at your local mall for the next year.
One standout, though, is the Lopez collaboration, “Drinks For You (Ladies Night),” which is way less pummeling than Pitbull’s usual style, even if we still can’t give it a total pass for missing the possessive apostrophe after the word “Ladies.” (C’mon, you guys! Think of the children!)
Over chilled-out, lounge-like beats, Lopez’s “I done had a long week, now it’s time to celebrate” hook is likably relaxed, while Mr. Worldwide gets a little more serious in his rhymes than usual — explaining why he supports women, or something. Either way, we wouldn’t mind hearing it at our local P.F. Chang’s.
