While the lyrics on Pitbull‘s next album, Armando (dropping in May) will be totalmente en español, the Latin-rap heavyweight isn’t leaving his many non-Spanish-speaking fans behind – Planet Pit, his next next album, will find him back to rapping (for the most part) en inglés. On the latter project’s lead single, Alright, Pit riffs on a familiar club-music theme, paying tribute to a shawty whose seductive dance moves have had him glancing her way all evening. The headliner’s bilingual game-spitting, delivered over producer Marc “MK” Kinchen‘s dancefloor-ready blend of driving percussion and Latin brass, is as ear-catching as ever (though the Haiti analogy seems a little… out of place), and Trinidadian singer Machel Monatano does his part to keep the party rocking, contributing a singalong hook as well as taking center stage on the amped-up bridge. This track is most definitely better than Alright, but is it in the same league as Pitbull’s previous smash hits? That’s for you to decide. Whatever your take, though, you’ll want to keep it locked for release details on Planet Pit, scheduled to land on store shelves late this year.
