"Pass at Me" is a single from American hip-hop producer Timbaland. The song features vocals from Cuban rapper Pitbull, and although uncredited, also features production by French DJ David Guetta. Verse 2 with Cuban rapper Pitbull samples elements from the song Chacarron Macarron by Panamanian artists Rodney Clark and Andy De La Cruz. It was released via digital download on September 13, 2011 in the United States, and will receive a full release across Europe on the weekend of October 7, 2011.

Background[edit]

The song was first announced in August 2011, following Timbaland ceasing releasing free music via his Timbo Thursdays promotion. It was suggested at the time that the track would not be released until December 2011, due to Shock Value III not being released until the new year. However, on September 12, 2011, Timbaland announced that the track would appear on the American iTunes store from midnight on September 13. Subsequently, downloads of the single resulted in it debuting at #23 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart. It later reached #4 on that chart. The single was released to European radio on the same date, subsequently appearing on Airplay charts in Poland and Slovakia. On September 20, 2011, the single was released in Australia, peaking at #89 on the ARIA Singles Chart. The single will receive a full release across Europe on October 7, 2011, and will be released in the United Kingdom on October 10, 2011. "Pass at Me" impacted Urban radio in the US on September 13, 2011. It impacted Top 40/Mainstream and Rhythmic radio on November 8, 2011.

Music video[edit]

The music video was released onto Timbaland's official VEVO channel on September 21, 2011, and was available exclusively to stream in the United States and Australia, before being released worldwide on September 24. The video features Pitbull on a boat, surrounded by girls dressed in Playboy outifts, while Timbaland is seen dancing at the top of a swimming pool at a mansion, similarly, surrounded by Playboy bunnies. The video continues like so until the third and final chorus, where the pair meet up at a party, of which David Guetta is the DJ, and such, the trio perform the last section of the song together.

The video has received over 20 million views.[1]

Remix[edit]

The official remix was made with the Puerto Rican duo Wisin & Yandel.
