Pitbull pulled a doubleheader Thursday at celebrated mixoloigist Albert Trummer’s soon-to-open Drawing Room Bar & Lounge at the new Shelborne Wyndham Grand South Beach, expected to open in September. Pitbull christened the hotel by simultaneously shooting a video for his single Como Yo Le Doy with reggaeton artist Don Miguelo and a photo shoot for the cover of Ocean Drive magazine’s upcoming men’s issue. The double shoot took place in the hotel’s lobby, bar, lounge, pool and in the highly anticipated, also soon to open Morimoto South Beach.
