Pitbull records Timber with Ke$ha

Pitbull and his tour partner Ke$Ha have teamed up to record a new track together.

Pitbull's new tune Timber, which features his labelmate, premiered on Monday (07Oct14), and features the rapper's traditional wealth boasts over a catchy harmonica hook.

He also pokes fun at Miley Cyrus' headline-grabbing MTV Video Music Awards performance, stating, "I have 'em like Miley Cyrus, clothes off/Twerkin' in their bras and thongs!"

Pitbull tells DJ Ryan Seacrest that Avicii's hit Wake Me Up! inspired him to get creative with a harmonica: "I've been around the world touring and it was a record from Avicii that was so big and had this country feel to it. This record came down, produced by Dr. Luke, Cirkut and Sermstyle, and I said, 'Man, I need to get my hands on that'.

"Being on tour with Ke$ha, we hit it off, and what better than to have a crazy, sexy, cool, beautiful woman on it with me."

Pitbull and Ke$ha will resume their joint tour in Australia on 30 October (13).
