Ke$ha has teamed up with Pitbull on his new track "Timber." According to Billboard, the song was unveiled on Ryan Seacret's radio show today.

"Timber" is a country-meets-pop-meets-urban-Latin with hard-driving harmonicas and a catchy lumberjack-inspired chorus with Ke$ha belting, "It's going down, I'm yelling, 'Timber.'"

According to the article, Pitbull and Ke$ha are on the same label (RCA) and have been recently touring together. Pitbull reportedly attributes the use of harmonica's on the track to the success of Avicii's electro-country hit "Wake Me Up!"

"I've been all around the world touring and it was a record from Avicii that was so big and had this country feel to it," Pitbull told Seacrest. "This record came down produced by Dr. Luke, Cirkut and Sermstyle, and I said, 'Man I need to get my hands on that.' And being on tour with Ke$ha, we hit it off, and what better than to have a crazy, sexy, cool, beautiful woman on it with me."
