Pitbull possesses an innate ability to remix hit songs into even bigger hit songs, and although we didn’t really see this one coming, it makes perfect sense that the Miami rapper now has a remix to Jay-Z and Kanye West’s hit “Ni–as in Paris,” titled “Latinos in Paris.” Mr. 305 is so on top of his game that he even managed to churn out a video for his remix track before Jay and Ye put out a video for the song that they’ve now played up to 11 times at their live shows.
In the beginning of the clip, which co-stars rapper Sensato, Pitbull announces that it’s the first video he’s ever directed. The visuals find them on a private jet, in the club, hanging out backstage before a big concert and obviously just hamming it up in Paris with the Eiffel Tower as a backdrop.

Does this mean that The Throne has to really bring their A-game when they finally release an original video for “Ni–as in Paris?” According to a tally from Rolling Stone, Jay-Z and Kanye performed “Ni–as in Paris” for at least 613.2 minutes on their WTT tour, playing it for 40:25 minutes when they played it 11 times in Vancouver.
