The man known as Mr. Worldwide is ready to get back to his main business, even as he spends more and more time with his latest investment in NASCAR. Pitbull’s new tour titled “I Don’t Know About You But I Feel Good” starts July 25 as the Grammy-winning rapper moves from the racetrack back to the stage.
He said he knows everyone wants to dance, escape and enjoy the world again. “Everything that happened in 2020 is something I think is a tremendous lesson and story for the whole world that they should appreciate life and now I can share that with the public,” Pitbull said. Pitbull has been very busy in racing since becoming a co-owner of the new NASCAR team Trackhouse Racing in January before the Daytona 500. He attended Sunday’s Cup race at the Nashville Superspeedway and praised the devotion of NASCAR fans.
“To see the passion, to see the loyalty, to see the willingness to just run through a wall for the team that they love,” Pitbull said. He related an experience at the Daytona 500 in February when someone approached him at a chain restaurant across the street from the speedway and told Pitbull he didn’t dress like a NASCAR owner. The rapper bought the man a couple shots — “I said yeah, but I do drink like a NASCAR owner, don’t I?” — and after a few more rounds and selfies, the fans paid the bill. “And that just showed a lot to me,” Pitbull said. “Not too many people do those kinds of things, especially in today’s day and age where it’s all about instant gratification; grab your photo, grab your video, do this for me, do that for me. Just that sense of gratitude showed me a very pleasant experience and it’s been amazing.”
