Pitbull is rolling his way into the history books…
The 31-year-old Cuban American hip-hop sensation graces the cover of Rolling Stone’s first bilingual issue in the magazine’s 45-year-history.
Pitbull appears on a secondary cover, complete with the Rolling Stone nameplate and cover lines entirely en español on the back page of the magazine’s November 22 issue.
Pitbull’s cover opens to a 15-page special section, Latin Hot List, which features Hispanic artists, musicians and luminaries like Puerto Rican rap group Calle 13, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Junot Díaz, Emmy-nominated actress Sofia Vergara and more.
“This section was an incredible opportunity for us to dive deep into Latin music and culture, from Pitbull to Café Tacuba,” said Nathan Brackett, Rolling Stone Deputy Managing Editor in a press release. “We are thrilled with the results.
The November 22 issue has articles written in English with interview sidebars in Spanish — and no translations.
