Pitbull Signs With UTA

UTA is proud to announce that musician, business entrepreneur, motivational speaker and education advocate Armando Christian Perez, aka Pitbull, has joined the agency across all areas worldwide.

The GRAMMY Award-winning global superstar completed his second co-headlining tour with Enrique Iglesias this year and supported Britney Spears on her European tour, along his celebrated “Time of Our Lives” Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood. He is also set to host his annual Worldwide NYE event at Bayfront Park in Miami this New Year’s Eve.

He has landed multiple #1 hits in over 15 countries, has over 10 billion Youtube/VEVO views and achieved 70 million single sales as well as six million album sales. Last year, he released his 10th full-length album “Climate Change” and first-ever “Greatest Hits” album.

Pitbull has signed on to the SXT UglyDolls franchise, based on the ubiquitous pop culture Uglydoll characters. He will write and perform an original song for the UglyDolls movie, slated for release in 2019, as well as lend his voice talent to one of the film’s key characters. Pitbull scored the film Gotti, starring John Travolta and the movie soundtrack includes the original Pitbull song, “Amore,” featuring Leona Lewis. He has also contributed songs for multiple movie soundtracks from franchises that include Fast and Furious, Hangover, and Pitch Perfect among others.

Pitbull’s expanding influence includes developing his own brands such as Voli 305 vodka, which has its own signature cocktails at multiple Sugar Factory American Brasserie locations, and the fragrance line “Pitbull” for men and women. Pitbull is currently gearing up to open iLove305, a new restaurant and nightlife concept on Miami’s famed Ocean Drive.

He is very active on the speaker’s circuit around the world, including in Singapore, London, Mexico City, and more. Pitbull shares his message through appearances with global figures such as Tony Robbins, Suzie Orman, Gary Vaynerchuk, and Daymond John. He also speaks annually at Emerge Americas, the Miami-based technology event that brings together influencers from North America, Latin America, and Europe.

Pitbull has been handpicked by Norwegian Cruise Line to be the “Godfather of Norwegian Escape” and he completed his second “Pitbull Cruise” this year. His commercial-free channel on SiriusXM (Ch. 13), “Globalization” has become one of the platform’s fastest-growing channels following its 2015 launch. In addition, Pitbull has served as brand ambassador for Bud Light, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, Kodak, and Dodge. He also serves as ambassador to the Sports Leadership Arts and Management (SLAM!) charter schools he has helped to establish. Launched in the Little Havana section of Miami where he spent some of his youth, SLAM! has now expanded to Las Vegas and West Palm Beach, Florida.
