How Pitbull Achieved a Net Worth of $80 Million

Armando Christian Perez, otherwise known as Pitbull, is Cuban-American born recording artist and entrepreneur. The 38-year-old ‘Mr. 305’, kicked off his music career by recording a mainstream performance, on Lil Jon’s 2002 solo album (Kings of Crunk). His debut album, M.I.A.M.I. was released in 2004. It was then followed by the release of his second album(El Mariel, 2006), third(Rebelution, 2009), and finally, his breakthrough hit single “I Know You Want Me”, #2 on US Billboard Hot 100.

However, ‘Mr. Worldwide’ has been under criticism from some rappers who’ve termed his rapping’ “shallow”, and also feel he’s arrogant. On the other hand, Pitbull has gracefully received the criticism and said it’s probably, because he likes to perceive situations differently, and thinks outside the box. To be honest, the criticisms haven’t held him back from laughing all the way to the bank, or have they? And, according to various sources, among them, CelebrityNetWorth, Pitbull has managed to achieve an $80 million net worth from – his album sales, business deals, endorsements, as well as world tours.

His biggest selling single ‘Timber’ earned him a whopping $12.6 million in track sales, after its release in 2013. In addition, he earned $450,000 from his “Planet Pit” album alone and another $400,000 from “Global Warming” album. In 2011, Pitbull earned $6 million. The following year, he brought in $9.5 million, followed by $11million in 2013. Soon after, he pulled in $17 million in 2015, hence breaking his own financial record. Also, Pitbull has toured very many parts of America (Both East and West), all the way to Europe, and across the US. His tours have sold out arenas and stadiums. He even received his own wax figure from Madame Tussauds Orlando. That aside, Miami awarded him a key to the city. He, also, received a star in Celia Cruz plaza on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
