About Pitbull

Pitbull's sixth studio album, "Planet Pit," features a host of pop music luminaries including Marc Anthony, Enrique Iglesias, Jamie Foxx, Chris Brown, T-Pain and Kelly Rowland, as well as star-studded producers Dr. Luke, Max Martin, David Guetta and Benny Blanco. The knockout smash "Give Me Everything" featuring Ne-Yo, marks Pitbull's first No. 1 single on the Billboard Hot 100 and Pop charts and is also a Top 10 hit in 15 countries. Pitbull's latest single, "International Love" featuring Chris Brown, is already making its way up the charts. Pitbull has also collaborated with some of music's biggest stars, including Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias, Usher and Shakira, to name a few. Even with the new album, Pitbull still found time to introduce Voli, his own line of premium, low-calorie vodka, and a partnership with Sheets, the dissolvable energy strip. These entrepreneurial ventures are the latest for Pitbull, who has inked major sponsorship deals with blue-chip brands like Kodak, Dr Pepper and Bud Light.

About Hot Chelle Rae

Riding high with the announcement of their win as "Sprint Best New Artist" at the American Music Awards last week and the massive success of their two irresistible pop hit singles, "Tonight Tonight" and "I Like It Like That," Hot Chelle Rae released their brand new album, "Whatever," in stores yesterday, November 29 on RCA Records. Declared "one of the catchiest pop-rock anthems of the summer" by USA Today, "Tonight Tonight" crashed into the Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in July, shot to No. 1 at Hot AC radio in September, and was certified double-platinum in the U.S., and platinum in Canada and Australia. The band's brand new single, "I Like It Like That," which Entertainment Weekly called "bubbly elasti-funk" and an "official fall-resisting battle cry," is climbing the Top 40 radio and Hot AC charts, while the song's documentary-style video racked up over 1 million views in its first 3 days on VEVO.
