With two singles quickly climbing the charts, Pitbull has signed with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Music Group through his “Mr. 305, Inc” imprint. The relationship will not only involve recording, but also touring and branding opportunities.
Pitbull’s current Ultra Records single “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)” is presently No. 13 on the Rhythm charts and is the follow-up to his hit single “Krazy” which featured Lil Jon and went on to sell 700,000 downloads. Pitbull’s digital download success just earned him a nomination in the upcoming Billboard Latin Music Awards in the newly created category â€“ “Latin Digital Download Artist of the Year.”
While ascending the charts with one smash single, Pitbull has another hit in the works â€“ the recently released “Blanco” featuring Pharrell, is the first single from the original motion picture soundtrack for Fast & Furious 4 (Interscope/Star Trak), released March 31st. The Paul Hunter directed “Blanco” video premieres this week and features Pitbull alongside Pharrell and Chad of The Neptunes.
“Being able to be a part of Pitbull’s career again after signing him to TVT Records 6 years ago is amazing. Being able to do this under Polo Grounds Music is even more satisfying. Pitbull’s work ethic is like no other – he and his team prove that it’s still about making music, taking chances and having fun” says Bryan Leach, President of Polo Grounds Music.
Polo Grounds also holds acts Nina Sky and Hurricane Chris.
