Say what you will, but no one gets the party going quite like Pitbull, the man born Armando Christian Pérez. Once a master of crunk and reggaeton, the pride of Dade County now makes his bucks — so many bucks — as a world-traveling showman rapping over sample-heavy EDM beats. Here, “International Love” isn’t just a song title but a fully realized aesthetic, too. A week and a half ago, he was in town to play Z100’s teen-friendly Jingle Ball and outperformed everyone short of Miley Cyrus. Tonight, he has Brooklyn’s Barclays Center all to himself, after opening performances from Jump Smokers and local bachata star Prince Royce.
