Amerindian parents from Cuba gave birth to Armando Christian Perez on the 15th of January 1981 in Miami, Florida.

His latest album, Global Warming, was once again the top-selling hip-hop album in the United States. He embarked on a worldwide tour to promote the record. “Back in Time,” a song initially recorded for the Men in Black 3 film, became a hit for him. Mickey & Sylvia’s “Love is Strange,” from the 1950s, is sampled in the song. Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, and Claudia Leitte sang “We Are One” at the 2014 World Cup opening ceremony. He was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame the following summer, in June 2014.
