St. Patrick's Day may be a day to celebrate those of Irish descent, but today we're listening to the Cuban-American rapper Pitbull. 

Climate Change, which is Pitbull's tenth studio album, was released today (March 17). If you're wondering why it seems like you may have heard some of these tracks already that is because the album's release (originally it was expected to happen in 2016) had been delayed a bit.

The good news? It is exactly the album that we've wanted from "Mr. 305." Climate Change is full of tracks that will make for party anthems like we've come to know and love from Mr. 305.

It also features some of the amazing collaborations that we have come to expect from Pitbull. You know you're in for a treat when there are collabs with artists like Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias, Flo Rida, Jason Derulo, and more. 

Let's look at three tracks from the album: 

The reggae-infused track titled "Options" featuring Stephen Marley is the most recent single to be released from the new album. The chorus goes: “I’ve got a whole lotta names, and a whole lotta numbers, but I throw them away cause I think I might love ya." We approve because isn't it always a good idea to let a girl know that she's not your "plan B?"

"Bad Man," which features Robin Thicke, Aerosmith's Joe Perry and Blink 182's Travis Barker, was actually released last year. In fact, we loved the trio's performance of this one at the 2016 GRAMMYs. 

You may also recognize the track "Freedom" from a series of television commercials earlier this year.

What do you think of the new album?
