Pitbull Says 'On the Floor' Is an 'Honor, Blessing and Opportunity'

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- With "On the Floor," Jennifer Lopez is currently enjoying her first major hit since 2003, and a big part of the song's success is due to Pitbull, who's prominently featured on the track.  However, Pitbull says he's just grateful that Jennifer chose him to participate.  He says, "Jennifer's a huge part of me being able to be on that song...and she's someone that I definitely look up to, not only as an artist, but as a businesswoman."  Pit explains, "She is a business, she is a brand, she is an enterprise and that's something that we look to do in the very near future."  The rapper's already on his way -- he holds a major stake in Voli brand vodka, a new low-calorie beverage for which he's also the spokesman.

Pitbull, whose nickname is "Mr. Worldwide," is also grateful that "On the Floor," which was produced by RedOne, has given him worldwide exposure: in addition to reaching #3 in the U.S., it hit #1 in Australia, Germany, Canada and Italy.  He says, "To be able to be involved with someone like, y'know, Jennifer Lopez and RedOne on a track and it be a global record, I mean, it's an honor, a blessing, a great opportunity." He adds, "Hopefully we'll have a couple more that we can knock out together."

Pitbull, of course, is enjoying his own success with his hit "Give Me Everything," featuring Ne-Yo.  His album Planet Pit, which is coming out June 21, also features guest appearances by Sean Paul, Chris Brown, Kelly Rowland, T-Pain and J-Lo's hubby, Marc Anthony.
