Mr. Worldwide continues his path to world domination!

Pitbull will become the first Latino musician to launch a music channel on satellite radio service SiriusXM. Listeners can tune in to listen to Pitbull's hits, such as "Timber" and "Calle Ocho", as well as international hits handpicked by the Miami-based rapper. Additionally, Mr. 305 will anchor a weekly show on the radio station.

"We are thrilled to team up with Pitbull in the creation of this exciting new music channel that will reach his massive audience," Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer of SiriusXM said in a statement. "Pitbull is truly 'Mr. Worldwide,' and his music and collaborations have drawn legions of fans who will now have access to a full-time channel that he is creating especially for them. Pitbull will bring the excitement and energy of his live appearance to the channel, only on SiriusXM."

In addition to being an international superstar and radio DJ, the 33-year-old musician owns his own life of premium vodkaVoli. His SiriusXM partnership puts him one step closer to his ultimate goal: a billion-dollar enterprise.

"Do I think it's realistic to be a billion-dollar company by 35? Absolutely," he said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. 

The SiriusXM channel will debut in early 2015. Will you be listening?
