All Music Guide - David Jeffries
Kudos to the Orchard label for labeling this set properly as Original Hits, which covers pop-rapper Pitbull's early years, the ones he spent on the now defunct TVT. That means this is the Miami man's 2004-2008 era where his evolution from reggaeton to Latin pop to Latin pop-rap-dance is on display with names like Lil Jon, Lil' Flip, Fat Joe, and the Ying Yang Twins all on the guest list. Big hits here include the spicy crunk anthem "The Anthem," the hypnotic reggaeton floor filler "Culo," and the raw, pounding "Bojangles," all of them sounding flashy, big, and like the start of a penthouse pool party where every beer has a lime on top. Rounding out the set are a bunch of...

Rounding out the set are a bunch of strong second-tier singles including the "Din Daa Daa"-sampling "Shake" and the Trina feature "Go Girl," plus some very strong choices when it comes to album cuts, including "Descarada Dance," with dancehall superstar Vybz Kartel and the "Rock Lobster"-sampling "Hey You Girl." Hardcore fans will appreciate the three bonus tracks tacked on at the end of the set: the mixtape cut "Lemonhead Delight," the rare "Guilty by Association," and the anti-Castro "Se Acabo" show the compilers were well aware of the artist and his desirable extras. Don't expect the major-label flash of 2009's "I Know You Want Me Calle Ocho" and all the hits that came after, but that sly smile on the cover is no lie, and when you get so much party music along with some danceable, uplifting "free the people" music, that's totally "Fuego."

    I first heard of Pitbull back in 2004 when I was in the military and stationed in North Island, California. “Culo” was one of the first tracks that I heard from him because it received heavy airplay on the radio. I was then re-introduced to him in 2009 when I was living in Orlando, Florida and frequently heard “I Know You Want Me” (Calle Ocho) on the radio. I had to give this cd a chance because I bought and enjoyed his “Planet Pit” compilation. “Shake”,”The Anthem”,”Midnight”,”Bojangles Remix” and “Toma” are some of the fun hits that feature on this cd. I only gave it four out of five stars because of my personal opinion that there some tracks from “Rebelution” and “Planet Pit” that could have made it on this compilation. For instance, music tracks such as “I Know You Want Me”,”Hotel Room Service”,”Give Me Everything”, “Rain Over Me”,”Hey Baby” and “International Love” would have all made good additions for the “Original Hits” compilation. Aside from this caveat, “Original Hits” by Pitbull is great for those who like festive and up-tempo dance music.
