Rain Over Me

Album: Planet Pit (2011)
Charted: 28 30

Songfacts®:

  • This RedOne produced tune is the third single by American rapper Pitbull, from his sixth studio album, Planet Pit. RedOne, who also co-wrote the song, is best known for his work with Lady Gaga ("Just Dance," "Poker Face"). Pitbull previously worked with the Moroccan-Swedish producer/songwriter when he guested on Enrique Iglesias' Red-One helmed hit single, "I Like It."
  • The song features Latin singer-songwriter and actor Marc Anthony. Many know him as the husband of Jennifer Lopez, but according to the Guinness Book of World Records, Anthony is the top selling tropical salsa artist of all time. Anthony and Pitbull previously worked together when they were both featured artists on the 2010 Cyprus Hill single "Armada Latina."
  • The song was released as a single around the time Anthony and Lopez announced their separation. Pitbull previously collaborated with the other half of the ex-couple when he appeared on J.Lo's hit single "On The Floor."
  • The music video was directed by David Rosseau, who previously helmed "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)." It finds Pitbull and Marc Anthony in a barren, sweltering hot desert partying hard enough to make it rain. They are accompanied by Cuban-American model and actress Natalie Martinez who is known for her supporting role in the 2008 sci-fi feature film Death Race.
  • The song topped the Spanish singles chart for five weeks. It also went to #1 in several other European countries, including Romania and Slovakia as well as the Billboard Hot Latin Songs and Tropical Songs charts.
