Armando Christian Perez, better known as Pitbull, is a Grammy Award-winning artist who has sold more than 5 million albums and 40 million singles worldwide, with No. 1 hits in more than 15 countries, according to his label, RCA Records. He kicked off the new year on Fox's "Pitbull's New Year's Eve Revolution." He performed at the 2016 Grammys, dancing alongside "Modern Family" actress Sofia Vergara. Where is "Mr. Worldwide" now? He's at the eMerge Americas conference, a two-day technology event in his hometown of Miami.
"I'm here at eMerge because I can relate with entrepreneurs, businessmen, especially being in the music business, because every time we come up with an idea or a new record, people are constantly telling us how it's not going to work, it's not as good as what you had before," Pitbull said Tuesday on CNBC's "Power Lunch."
The singer is no stranger to struggle. "That's what I always come out for, just to let them know that I'm constantly going through the same struggle, same hustle, same fight every day," he said.
