UPDATED: Pitbull Co-opts Another Massive Brazilian Hit for his Raunchiest Song to Date (audio)
Mr. Worldwide is at it again…
By ANGIE ROMERO
UPDATE: We’ve posted the audio below to Pitbull’s new song “Tchu Tcha Tcha.” Warning: explicit lyrics.
If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s Armando Christian Perez’s M.O. and it just keeps on paying off. Just like he did with Michel Telo’s “Ai Se Eu Te Pego” last year, Pitbull has once again recycled a massive Brazilian hit for his new album, Global Warming.
But here’s the scoop on Pitbull’s version of Joao Lucas & Marcelo’s hit “Tchu Tcha Tcha” (See also: Neymar’s Allure, Brazil’s Rising Soccer Star and Pop Crossover Mastermind), which Brazilian soccer star Neymar made a hit by dancing to it after scoring goals, just like he did to Telo’s “Ai Se Eu Te Pego,” which helped catapult Telo into worldwide fame.
Pitbull then co-opted Telo’s song for himself. At least that was an official remix featuring Telo and it was relatively innocent - in the Pitbull raunch-o-meter.
Pit’s version of “Tchu Tcha Tcha” off the new album is waaaay raunchier from what we can hear. Though we can’t share the audio until November 19th, when Global Warming comes out, here’s what we can share.
Pitbull gives the Brazilian dance anthem a twist by turning it into a a raunchy fairy tale of sorts.
“Caperucita roja, donde tu vas? A lavarte la….Tchu Tcha Tcha? Wow, como ha cambiado este cuento (Little Red Riding Hood, where are you going? To wash your Tchu Tcha Tcha? My, how this tale has changed,” he whispers in the beginning of the track.
For those who don’t know, in certain parts of Latin America and the Caribbean, the word ch*cha means a lady’s parts (in Brazil, however, it’s just the name of a sexy dance). Pitbull obviously means the former in this instance.
For the hook, fellow Miami boy Enrique Iglesias jumps on the track, crooning,”I’m picking you/You’re what I want/I want your Tchu Tcha Tcha Tchu Tcha Tcha.”
Enrique then repeats the hook, replacing “want” with “need.” How sweet.
Later, Pit jumps on and goes: “We ain’t here for a long time/ we here for a good time/ so take a sip of that Voli and unwind, and let me f*ck you blind.”
So, yeah, you get the picture.
Here’s the original Brazilian version of “Tchu Tcha Tcha” in the meantime. Just imagine this with that typical Pitbull club beat…
