As a Cuban-American, Pitbull used the “Open Letter” instrumental to speak about political issues surrounding the relationship between Cuba and America. He also sent a message to Jay and Beyonce.
“Question of the night, would they have messed with Mr. Carter if he was white?” Pitbull asks on the track. “Happy fifth year anniversary, Jay and Bey. Don’t worry, it’s on me.”
The song comes in response to criticism Jay-Z faced while visiting Cuba with Beyonce. Senator Marco Rubio demanded the president’s explanation for the trip. The trip was reportedly licensed through the U.S. Treasury Department.
Pitbull announced the track via his Twitter account and posted a message to fans.
