On the heels of the announcement of Pitbull’s international blockchain coding competition, news broke last week that the performer known as Mr. Worldwide created the score for John Travolta’s latest gangster film. The soundtrack of the biopic, which follows the life of Gambino family kingpin John Gotti, will also include an original track from Pitbull himself, entitled “Amore.”
To shed some light on Gotti‘s unexpected artistic fusion, the Travolta-Pit duo shared their thoughts with The Hollywood Reporter. Travolta said that Pitbull’s “style, creativity, and culture” made him a perfect fit for the film, going so far as to label the performer “one of the most electric talents in the music industry today.” Pitbull found inspiration in the idea of Travolta and him starting from the bottom. “By default, we were underdogs in our own right and found ways to survive against all odds,” said the “Scooby Doo Pa Pa” remix artist.
The movie star and singer featured in such hits as Grease‘s “You’re the One That I Want” and 2008 Miley Cyrus duet “I Thought I Lost You” has had several notable movies powered by exceptional soundtracks, but only time will tell if “Amore” is fit to rival “More Than a Woman” in the Travolta film canon. At any rate, fans will soon be getting a chance to experience the full breadth of Pitbull’s cinematic soundtrack skills — he also signed on to perform an original track in the upcoming film debut of a line of freaky plushies, the UglyDolls.
