Pitbullhas gone country…
The 39-year-old Cuban American rap superstar has joined voices with Blake Shelton for “Get Ready,” which also marks their rendition of Ram Jam’s 1977 hit “Black Betty.”
For Pitbull, this collaboration makes a big statement.
“This to me is like when Run-DMC and Aerosmith did ‘Walk This Way,’” he said in a behind-the-scenes video. Shelton also expressed how honored he was to be making music with Pitbull.
“Get Ready” is a countrified pop-dance tune that perfectly fuses both artist’s musical styles and cultures with a music video that taps the best of both worlds.
It kicks off with Shelton and Pitbull sitting at a ranch in Nashville, Tennessee, inciting their own kind of rodeo complete with gorgeous cowgirls and a rickety and rowdy mechanical bull.
The clip then transports viewers to the party life at the Hard Rockin Hollywood, Florida, showing models dancing by the pool at night.
