"The Anthem" is the second single released by Pitbull off his 2007 album The Boatlift. It features crunk rapper Lil Jon. The intro line, as well as the song's main hook, is taken from a 70s old Latin hit "El Africano" by Sonora Dinamita. It samples the song "Calabria", by Danish producer and DJ Rune Reilly Kølsch, also known as Enur.
"Defense" (Official Remix to "The Anthem") 
The official remix is entitled "Defense (The Anthem)", it features Trinidadian Soca Artiste Machel Montano with Pitbull & Lil Jon. The remix can be found on Machel Montano's album Flame on (Wining Season is the U.S. edition of the album). This song is notable because its primary beat is played by a synthesized saxophone, which covers a simple minor triad. There is a music video for the remix on YouTube.
