Pitbull Selected as Billboard’s “Latin Digital Download Artist of the Year,” Album to Drop Sept. 1
New York, NY -- Hip-hop artist Pitbull was honored at tonight’s Billboard Latin Music Awards with the first-ever “Latin Digital Download Artist of the Year” award. Pitbull’s explosive single “Krazy” (Mr. 305/Orchard), featuring Lil Jon, captured the title from fellow category nominees Aventura, Enrique Iglesias, and Shakira.
“This is the beginning of a new phase in my career and it's an honor to win this award with such great artists nominated in the same category,” says Pitbull. “It just goes to show that hard work does pay off. Thank you to the fans; without them none of this would be possible.”
Recently, Pitbull signed with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Music Group and will be releasing his album REBELUTION on Mr. 305/Polo Grounds Music/RCAMG on September 1. The album will be executive produced by super-producer Jim Jonsin (Lil Wayne, T.I.) and will also feature production from Jonsin, alongside Lil Jon (Ciara, Usher), Mr Collipark (Soulja Boy), Play N Skillz (Lil Wayne, Chamillionaire), The Neptunes (Britney Spears, Justin, Jay Z) and others.
