[photogallerylink id=105839]

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pitbull[/lastfm] sure knows how to make a solid first impression.

Those of us who work on the morning show are used to rolling out of bed at 4am and putting on whatever clean clothes we can find before heading on over to our dumpy little building in Culver City.

Seriously, we’re lucky if we can wake up early enough to brush our hair.

So clearly we were impressed when [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pitbull[/lastfm] and his crew arrived promptly on time, dressed to the nines, and smelling of sexy cologne!

It’s not exactly what one would expect from a rap superstar, but maybe that’s why [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pitbull[/lastfm]’s on top of his game right now.

He released his new album, Planet Pit, yesterday and has been working non-stop to get the word out.

But even at 7am, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pitbull [/lastfm] was awake, alert, and ready to party. He explained Carson what motivates him every day:

[The] album’s out, Planet Pit is out there with “Hey Baby” featuring Ne-Yo, Afrojack. It’s a list of super-producers and super artists. More than anything I’m blessed…the ability to do what you love. So I don’t have a problem waking up early.

One thing we love about Mr. Worldwide is his ability to create hit after hit by collaborating with many of the top artists in the biz and Planet Pit continues this same pattern.

The album features cameos by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Brown[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Enrique Iglesias[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]T-Pain[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Marc Anthony[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kelly Rowland[/lastfm]…I mean, the list goes on and on!

Although the 30-year-old was born and raised in Miami by Cuban immigrants, he gave a shout out to his loyal SoCal fanbase:

LA has definitely been my #1 market in the USA and has no matter what kept that foundation for me. Been a great following, great fans, and great energy. So always to LA, I want to say thank you so much. I say it at every concert, without the fans there is no Pitbull. 150% goes even harder for Los Angeles .

Seriously, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pitbull[/lastfm] always has just the right words to charm everyone in the room.

He even managed to make one night stands sound romantic when he was chatting it up with Carson.

Coming from a city like Miami, whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, so they say. Well, what happens in Miami never happened. So a one night stand becomes a convenient amnesia. And I’m all about a convenient amnesia. “Give me everything tonight cause we might not get tomorrow.” So it gives an optimistic point of view and it’s about being positive.

But what really sets [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pitbull[/lastfm] apart from other run-of-the-mill entertainers is his massive empire that he’s been slowly building.

[pullquote quote=”A lot a people think it’s glitz and glam and don’t know what it’s really like to put it together. ” credit=”Pitbull on the making of his latest album”]

His Planet Pit app is a must-have. It’s your one stop shop for artwork, lyrics, and behind-the-scenes information about his album, which is handy now that everything is digital these days.

The Planet Pit app embodies has everything you need to know what it takes to put this album together, ’cause a lot a people think it’s glitz and glam and don’t know what it’s really like to put it together.

Add to that his flavor-infused, low-calorie vodka Voli, and it’s easy to see why they call him Mr. Worldwide.

And while money is serious business, Pitbull doesn’t take himself too seriously, especially when it comes to his partnership with Sheets energy strips:

You wake up in the morning and take a sheet. Sheet, shave, and shower! Lebron James, Chris Paul, Amare Stoudemire are also involved with this company. What happened, the last game versus Dallas, [is that] Lebron James didn’t take a sheet, but not me. I always take a sheet. I’m a sheet head!

Make sure to check out [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pitbull[/lastfm] when he heads out on the Euphoria tour with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Enrique Iglesias[/lastfm] this summer.

He’ll also be appearing on Today’s Summer Concert Series on July 1.

Yes, everywhere you look, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Pitbull[/lastfm] is probably there.

And between you and me, he’d like to keep it that way.
