Top dance music artist of the moment; American rapper Pitbull will be performing Live in Concert at Surf Beach, Sunway Lagoon in Petaling Jaya on 1 December, 2011!
The concert will feature opening DJ set by US upcoming DJ Joe Maz and DJ Big Shype, followed by our very own international-breaking dance music sensation Mizz Nina; currently making waves with her 2nd dance smash hit “Take Over” feat US rapper superstar Flo-rida.
I was at the press conference and we had a little chat with Susan and James of JS Concert who naturally, shared on how excited they are for successfully bringing in Pitbull to Malaysia for the concert.
Mizz Nina revealed that she would be performing a medley of songs which will include 2 new songs from her upcoming album. When queried by the press on why Mizz Nina was chosen for the opening act, Susan said simply, “”We can’t think of anyone else better suited for the role, can you?””. Besides, she added, Mr Worldwide (as Pitbull is commonly known) has personally given his approval as well!

MORE ON PITBULL:
Regarded as one the biggest Latino superstars in the American entertainment scene, Pitbull, born Armando Christian Pérez, has left a trail of hit singles in his wake and he is still going strong with his fifth album Planet Pit, released earlier this year.
Known for his collaborations with Jennifer Lopez (On the Floor), Ne-Yo (Give Me Everything ), Enrique Iglesias (I Like It) and Usher (“DJ GotUs Fallin’ in Love”), he is also one artist who has managed to balance hip hop talent and pop success.
Pitbull has made major moves throughout his seven-year career. But his musical origins may have been rooted in bass music and the crunk movement of the early-2000s.
His first album, M.I.A.M.I. (Money is a Major Issue), was dedicated to his hometown and exemplified his local accessibility but his latest, Planet Pit, exemplifies his worldwide reach. He made a significant chart breakthrough with albums like Rebelution (2009) and the Spanish language Armando (2010) which put him on the global map. Pitbull has grown into a rapper with mass appeal.
His music is synonymous with the radio and clubbing scene with singles like I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho), Blanco, Hotel Room Service, Shut It Down, Hey Baby (Drop It to the Floor), Give Me Everything and Rain Over Me all making an impact.
Planet Pit has given Pit his first #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Give Me Everything.” The album’s sound isn’t rooted in the block, as were earlier songs like “Rain Over Me” featuring salsa great Marc Anthony and the Chris Brown-laced “International Love.” His latest aims to break global boundaries.
