Today (Jan. 15), Mr. 305 turns 39.
But Pitbull — born Armando Perez in Miami, Fla. — has been featured on many, many more tracks than that. With his impossibly catchy hooks, Pitbull is firmly entrenched as the man everyone wants to record with.
It was hard to pick favorites from such a huge arsenal of hits, but we went straight to the source and asked Billboard’s chart department for Pitbull’s top of the top.
Pitbull’s biggest Hot 100 hits are based on actual performance on the weekly Hot 100 through January 11, 2020. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, eras are weighted to account for different chart turnover rates over various periods.
