Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged at 10:38 pm by LynxLee


Calle Ocho’s a street’s name in Little Havana, Miami.

Little Havana fire hosts its annual Cuban-festive Calle Ocho street festival (part of the overall Carnival Miami celebrations), one of the largest in the world, with over one million visitors annually. It is a free street festival with a Caribbean carnival feel sponsored by the local Kiwanis Club.

Calle Ocho earned an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records when 119,986 people formed the world’s longest conga line on March 13, 1988.

A great review from a Billboard.com editor, Michael Menachem:

“Pitbull delivers some Little Havana to the club scene with “I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho).” The clever meshing of reggaetón with Euro dance music signals what looks like a multiformat smash. At the core is an acoustic guitar and a sizzling rhythm, with hot horns in the form of a sample that just keeps on giving: Chicago’s “Street Player,” which appeared in the ’90s techno hit “The Bomb” by the Bucketheads. Mainstream radio missed out on Pitbull’s previous single “Krazy,” featuring Lil Jon, but “Calle Ocho” is already on the top half of the Billboard Hot 100, and the temperature on the street and in the clubs is rising”.

I saw Pitbull perform in Jimmy Kimmel Live on TV, wearing a suit and I instantly thought this guy is class! I mean, I kinda had an assumption of another “Sean Paul” style again.. but the guy’s stylish. That performance leads me to this post. Simply. Awesome!
