Artists like Eminem, Ozzy Osbourne, and Willie Nelson have their own channels on SiriusXM, and now Pitbull does, too.

The Cuban-American superstar rapper/pop star, whose real name is Armando Christian Perez, is making history as the first Latino to have a channel on the satellite radio service.

The new channel will launch early next year, and Pitbull will program the playlists, which will include his own music, of course, as well as tunes by other artists he loves, and he will host a weekly show.

In a statement released by SiriusXM, Pitbull thanked the radio giant for allowing him to bond with his fans in a new way: “I will also get a chance to play all the music that I love and grew up listening [to]—most of all, we are going to have a lot of fun in the process—so preparense [get ready!] y daleeeeee.”

It’s been a great summer for Pitbull, who performed on the White House lawn on July 4.

And just a few weeks ago, he dropped the first single, “Fireball,” from his upcoming album "Globalization."


Pitbull will hit the road with Enrique Iglesias in support of the album in September. Tickets are on sale now for the 24-city tour, so get them while you can!
