Can’t get away this summer? Take a trip to Planet Pit (out June 21), the album-length dance party hosted by Miami native Pitbull (born Armando Pérez) and featuring guests like Enrique Iglesias, Kelly Rowland, Ne-Yo, and Chris Brown. ”With all the negativity going on in the world right now,” says Pitbull, 30, ”people need an escape. When you give them a great record, for at least three to four minutes they’re not thinking bills or economy or war. They just unwind.”
