Pitbull releases his tenth full-length album, Climate Change [Mr. 305, Polo Grounds, RCA Records], on October 28, 2016, after wrapping his second headlining arena run – The Bad Man Tour, named after the Climate Change hit single featuring – and performed on the 2016 Grammy Awards with – singer Robin Thicke, Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry and Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker.
