Top 10 Pitbull Songs

Who could've predicted that Pitbull songs would become a popular hip-hop staple on the American radio airwaves, particularly a sample-laden dance track that would later strike gold? Making music since 2001, the Cuban-American rapper from Miami -- formal name Armando Christian Perez -- first appeared on the scene as a guest artist on Lil Jon's 'Kings of Crunk' album. Soon after, Pitbull recorded several albums for the now defunct TVT Records. Then in 2009, independent dance label Ultra Records released 'I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)' and the rest is history. Here we list the top 10 Pitbull songs, as chosen by AOL Radio listeners.

'Ay Chico (Lengua Afuera)'
This was the second single from Pitbull's 2006 album 'El Mariel'. The album title refers to the mass exodus of Cuban refugees who departed from Cuba's Mariel harbor bound for the U.S. in 1980. Thousands of Cubans landed in Florida seeking asylum including some of Pitbull's family members.

'Toma'
'Toma', featuring Lil Jon, was the fourth single from Pitbull's 2004 debut album, 'M.I.A.M.I. (short for Money Is A Major Issue)'. The original version was too explicit for radio because it referenced cunnilingus and other sexual acts.

'The Anthem'
Once again teaming up with Lil Jon, this Pitbull song was the second single from the 2007 album 'The Boatlift'. The album also included duets with Jason Derulo ('My Life'), Jim Jones ('Sticky Icky'), Trina ('Go Girl'), Twista ('Candyman'), and Trick Daddy ('Dukey Love'). Pitbull's variety show on the mun2 cable network debuted the same year.

'Culo'
How fitting that the No.1 Pitbull song as chosen by AOL Radio listeners was also his first single. Soon after its release, Pitbull was added to the 2005 Anger Management Tour headlined by Eminem and 50 Cent. 'Culo' ('Butt' in English) is from his 2004 debut album 'M.I.A.M.I.'
