Latin Grammy winner Pitbull knows you want him, so he has linked up with Sirius XM radio to create his own channel, becoming the first Latino musician with a music channel on the satellite radio service.

The channel, like those of other music superstars with similar channels on the Sirius XM, will feature the rapper-pop musician’s songs, such as his 2009 hit "I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho)". But it will showcase music of other musicians that "Mr. Worldwide" as he calls himself, selects, Sirius said in a statement. The channel will be anchored by a weekly show hosted by Pitbull, aka Armando Christian Perez.

Pitbull, a Cuban American, is well known for not only his music success but his entrepreneurial pursuits.
