Are y’all going to revoke my hip-hop pass because I immediately knew that the sample from Pitbull’s new track Pearly Gates was from DJ Sammy’s 2002 hit Heaven, which is itself a cover of Bryan Adams’ 1983 track of the same name? Let’s move on before I embarrass myself further. The important thing to know is that months after the unstoppable Pitbull dropped Rebelution the album’s still going strong, and now he’s considering releasing Pearly Gates, which was previously only found on the international version of the album, as a U.S. single. Produced by DJ Noodles and Jim Jonsin and featuring model/singer Nayer, Pearly Gates is much more romantic track than we’re used to from Pit, with the Cubano rapper for once focusing on a lady’s interior instead of posterior. All that means it will either be a smash hit or a disappointment to hardcore fans. So how about it Booth? Is Pearly Gates new single material? Let us know.
