Pitbull Teams Up with Blake Shelton for New Country-Pop Single “Get Ready”

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.” 

Pitbull & Blake Shelton

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.
