Media and lifestyle company Playboy Enterprises, Inc. announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with global music superstar Pitbull.
The relationship, designed as a creative cross-pollination between the worlds of Pitbull and Playboy, will feature a variety of content, experience, and product-related initiatives.
