Pitbull Samples Soup Dragons On New Single “Freedom”
Pitbull is revisiting the classics on upcoming LP Climate Change. The 34-year-old sampled Adina Howard’s “Freak Like Me” on lead single “FREE.K” and now dips into Soup Dragons’ 1990 anthem “I’m Free” on “Freedom.” As it turns out, the Scottish band’s sing-along hit is perfect fodder for Mr. Worldwide. He simply recycles the chorus and pads out the rest of the song with not-so humble brags about his money (and popularity with the ladies).
“Your boy picked up a residency in Vegas, making history, performing amongst the greatest,” the “Fun” hitmaker boasts. “My father brought boats over in the ’80s, now I godfather my own ship, man it’s crazy.” Pitbull never strays far from his party rap formula, but why fix something that clearly isn’t broken? Mr. 305’s 10th LP is due later this year. Listen to “Freedom” below.
