Global Warming (Pitbull)

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Jeffries
With his label, J Records, closing shop, Miami rapper Pitbull moves to RCA proper for Global Warming, a high-octane, well-funded party album that needs a bit of trimming to be considered officially "non-stop." It's the polished ballads that are the arguable snares, as the Chris Brown feature "Hope We Meet Again" offers a pleasing, "one for the ladies" number at half the usual speed, and while it might be a worthwhile attempt to round out the album, it's surrounded by tracks that party like a speedy, overcrowded boat on Miami seas with "bottle service or die!" painted on the side. Put the BPMs in the right order and this could be the ultimate Pitbull mix CD, which Mr. 305...

With his label, J Records, closing shop, Miami rapper Pitbull moves to RCA proper for Global Warming, a high-octane, well-funded party album that needs a bit of trimming to be considered officially "non-stop." It's the polished ballads that are the arguable snares, as the Chris Brown feature "Hope We Meet Again" offers a pleasing, "one for the ladies" number at half the usual speed, and while it might be a worthwhile attempt to round out the album, it's surrounded by tracks that party like a speedy, overcrowded boat on Miami seas with "bottle service or die!" painted on the side. Put the BPMs in the right order and this could be the ultimate Pitbull mix CD, which Mr. 305 himself would seem to prefer at this point, delivering his Pollstar numbers ("80,000 People in London Wembley/90,000 in Morocco, and I'm just getting warmed up") with true gusto on the massive "Don't Stop the Party," a wicked TJR production that rocks the house with a goofy, Fatboy Slim vibe. Later, it's Christina Aguilera and a sample of a-ha's "Take On Me" for the glorious disco explosion called "Feel This Moment," while the Usher and Afrojack track "Party Ain't Over" is Dutch EDM with Miami pop-rap on top, truly the Global Warming advertised on the album cover. No inconvenient truths as J. Lo joins for the surprisingly minimal and deep bit of house called "Drinks for You (Ladies Anthem)," and as "Have Some Fun" mashes an old Sheryl Crow hit with some very 2012-flavored, dubstep bass drops, it's guilty pleasure fireworks exploding through the speakers and the shameless high point of the album. "Tchu Tchu Tcha," with Enrique Iglesias, is up for debate as its double entendre hook is on the border of creepy, but it's tucked toward the end of the album, timed to be experienced well after the bottle service has kicked in. Ask a polar bear his opinion, and it's an irresponsible album title, too, but Pitbull's Global Warming is the spicy pop-rap place to forget the world's problems, so forgive the fat, forgive the mess, and enjoy the heat.

    Dance Fun Warming

    I previously enjoyed “Planet Pit” by Pitbull and enjoyed the fact that the title of the cd lived up to its name. I actually enjoy “Global Warming” by Pitbull even more and really felt that he poured so much of his imaginative energy into the musical tracks of “Global Warming”. Once again, I completely understand that Pitbull’s listening audience may or may not share the same ideas as me on the best tracks from “Global Warming”. However, the songs that really put me in a good time mood are among the following:
    “Feel This Moment” (featuring Christina Aguilera),”Back In Time” (featured in the Men In Black 3” movie), “Hope We Meet Again” (featuring Chris Brown), “Party Ain’t Over” (featuring Usher and Afrojack), “Drinks For You (Ladies Anthem” (featuring Jennifer Lopez), “Have Some Fun” (featuring The Wanted & Afrojack), Tchu Tchu Tcha” (featuring Enrique Iglesias), “Last Night” (featuring Havana Brown & Afrojack), and “Everybody” (featuring Akon & David Rush).
    “Global Warming” (Deluxe Edition) by Pitbull is definitely a good buy for anyone that has enjoyed any of this previous musical works and/or music that brilliantly mashes up various music genres (such as the musical mixes of R&B, dance, rap, and electronic in this collection).
