Pitbull brought the party to the plaza this morning on the Today Show. He performed three of his collaborations, including “Give Me Everything” with Ne-Yo, “Rain” with Marc Anthony and “Hey Baby!” with T-Pain.
“Did you get up early this morning or did you stay up real late?” Matt Lauer asked on the Today Show.
“See, you know me,” Pitbull said. “Absolutely, I stayed up real late. No sleep yet. That’s a part of the lifestyle we live.”
“There’s something about this kind of magic touch that you’ve got right now,” Matt said. “Not only with your own music, but when you collaborate with others you seem to be a hit maker. Have you stopped and tried to analyze what is going on?”
“No. I don’t look at it in no way, shape or form like that. I look at it like those are great opportunities that those people are giving me,” the artist explained.
And he doesn’t feel pressure to always have a song be a hit.
“No, to be honest with you, none of us go into the studio looking for a hit,” he said. “We just do what we love. We just love to be creative and work with creative people. But the minute that you start feeling the pressure, I think that’s when you don’t produce.”
