Pitbull and Sensato Take on the City of Light in ‘Latinos in Paris’ Video
Pitbull has co-directed his first video, ‘Latinos in Paris,’ in which he takes on the French capital with Dominican rapper Sensato.
The two stars perform their reworking of Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s ‘Watch the Throne’ track, ‘N—as in Paris,’ before Parisian attractions. Fans get to see the Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, spliced with footage of the two rappers jet-setting around the world.
‘Latinos in Paris’ leaked several months ago, and was performed by Pitbull during his ‘Starfloor 2011′ performance in Paris last November. The video incorporates backstage moments, as well as live performance shots from that night, offering just under three minutes of action from Mr. Worldwide and his protege.
This isn’t Pitbull and Sensato’s first collaboration. The duo teamed up with Lil Jon on the remix of the hit ‘Watagatapitusberry,’ as well as Sensato’s latest single, ‘Crazy People.’ Pitbull and Sensato’s ‘N—s in Paris’ remix, however, came about more organically.
“I happened to be on tour with Pitbull and I pick up my computer and pulled out the beat [of the song] to start writing to it,” Sensato tells Latina. “Pitbull sits next to me, sees what I’m doing, and said, ‘I’m going to get on that with you.’ And I was like, ‘Hell yea! Of course!’”
Sensato adds, “He’s someone that inspires me 24/7 and being able to actually see the real deal through him is a blessing. I met Pit through the remix of ‘Watagatapitusberry.’ Ever since that connection, we have always kept in touch. He would just always help me out with no type of attachment.”
