Pitbull's Animated "Celebrate" Video
Pitbull unveils the animated video for his 'Penguins Of Madagascar' soundtrack song "Celebrate".

Pitbull‘s eighth studio LP Globalization drops November 24 but the MC’s collaboration with Chris Brown has arrived online a little early. And it’s actually rather great! An irresistible ’80s throwback, “Fun” pays tribute to Miami Sound Machine‘s exuberant Cuban-influenced pop with it’s hip-swinging Latin rhythms and perky percussion. Breezy’s Michael Jackson-channelling vocal is also something of a treat.

“Oh my my, lookin’ like a good good time, don’t disguise the way you wanna love tonight,” the “Loyal” hitmaker sings over what could well be a sample of Gloria Estefan & Co.’s 1985 hit “Conga”. “Oh my my, hook you with a brand new high, don’t be shy I just wanna live tonight”. That’s when Mr. Worldwide pops up for the briefest of verses before returning for an encore where he name checks Enrique Iglesias and raps about his glamorous lifestyle. Listen to the Globalization gem after the jump.
