Pitbull Unveils 'Globalization' Release Date, Album Cover & Collaborators
When he's not busy being Mr. 305, Pitbull is all about being Mr. Worldwide. Now, he's taking his love for world domination straight to the cover of his new album Globalization. Yesterday (Oct. 15), the "Fireball" rapper unveiled the artwork and official release date for his eighth studio album.
The album cover is a bizarre mashup of Pitbull's face and planet Earth. Against a stark white background and beneath black text with Pitbull's name and Globalization, Pitbull's own skin and facial features have been wiped away, only to be replaced by the swirling blues and greens of the world. Textures, however, have left in spots for Pitbull's eyes and a raise for his nose, creating a kind of Twilight Zone vibe to the artwork.
And, just to keep things classy, Pitbull is rocking a tuxedo.

According to Rap-Up, Globalization will finally be released on Nov. 24.
The record, which is currently being led by the single "Fireball," also features some big name collaborations.
Pitbull is reteaming with some of his favorite musicians, including Chris Brown ("International Love") and Jennifer Lopez ("We Are One," "On the Floor," "Booty"). He will also be working with Sean Paul, Jason DeRulo, Claudia Leitte, G.R.L., Dr. Luke, Bebe Rexha and more.
Globalization will be Pitbull's eighth studio album and his first release since his Nov. 2012 album Global Warming. Pitbull did, however, release the Meltdown EP last year, featuting his Ke$ha collaboration "Timber."
