Pitbull Goes Full '90s on New "Freedom" Jam

We're eight days into the new year and there's already a new Pitbull jam for our pleasure.

Mr. Worldwide just dropped "Freedom," which reinterprets the beat and melody of the '90s hit "I'm Free" by Soup Dragons, which is actually a cover of the Rolling Stones' song of the same name, off their 1965 December's Children (And Everybody's) album. Naturally, the synths have been amped up and Pit's delivering his classic braggadocio on the verses alongside the shout-along chorus.

"Freedom" is the second taste of Pitbull's upcoming album Climate Change, which is expected in early 2016. Last month, Pit revealed "FREE.K" which also sampled another '90s jam (Adina Howard's "Freak Like Me," to be exact) which makes us wonder if Climate Change will be an LP of '90s reworks. If so, can we put in requests for "Wanna Be Down" and "No Scrubs" ASAP?
