Pitbull wants to ‘Get It Started’ with Shakira on a track from his upcoming album, ‘Global Warming.’ The track blends a dance beat and up-tempo verses with a slowed-down, piano-driven pop chorus.

Though many club songs are about finding love for just one night, Shakira has a much bigger commitment on her mind. She sings, “Every time I look into your eyes / I feel like I could stare in them for a lifetime / We can get started for life, for life, for life.

Interestingly, Pitbull doesn’t necessarily share that sentiment, as he spends most of the track rapping about his passports and his world travels, reinforcing his Mr. Worldwide label. He rhymes, “To these rappers I apologize, I know it ain’t fair / Only ball I drop, New Year’s Times Square / The world is mine / Sixth sense, I see the seven signs / Now baby, let’s get started for life.”

‘Global Warming’ will be Pitbull’s follow-up to ‘Planet Pit,’ which dropped last year and featured the hits ‘Hey Baby (Drop It to the Floor)’ and ‘Give Me Everything.’ Since then, Pitbull has released ‘Back in Time’ from ‘Men in Black 3′ and has been featured on Havana Brown‘s ‘We Run the Night’ and Jennifer Lopez‘s ‘Dance Again.’
