Pitbull collaborating with Shakira for the first single of his latest album Global Warning is the 3rd time they collaborated in an album.
“Get It Started” continues Pitbull journey through the club and gives him a chance to compares himself to both Manny Pacquiao and Tom Cruise. Shakira shows up to provide the heart-wrung hook, emoting as the beat breaks off into a subtle stomp before quickly returning in full force seconds later.
“To these rappers I apologize, I know it ain’t fair. Only ball I drop, New Year’s Times Square. The world is mine, sixth sense, I see the seven signs. Now baby, let’s get started for life”, he sings the first stanza
Here is the part were he mentioned Tom Cruise and Manny Pacquiao:
“Big news, Pitbull. Tom Cruise, Mumbai. All lit up like a December night, like the 4th of July, Vanilla Sky / Thrilla in Manilla, knockin’ em out like Pacquiao. New Ali, new Frazier but for now it’s off to Malaysia,” he sings.
I like Pitbull because he perform on the stage not wearing any fancy gold chains.
