Santana Compares Pitbull To The Rolling Stones And Queen

Latin pop star Pitbull has amassed a huge worldwide following and it appears Carlos Santana is one of his biggest fans. During a recent interview with ABC, the legendary guitarist opened up about his love for Pit, going so far as to compare the singer with the Rolling Stones and Queen.

The pair recently connected for a remake of Santana's classic track "Oye Como Va," and Carlos admits that Pitbull worked hard to make sure his take on the track was perfect:

"I'm so grateful to him 'cause I think he tried it, like, close to 20 times," Santana explained.

"I feel so grateful that he invested such diligence, and willingness to do this. Everything that he does becomes like halftime at the Super Bowl, or the NBA. He's like the new Queen and Rolling Stones of today, because every time you want your team to pick up the energy, they play that music, y'know? So that's what Pitbull is: he's, like, the arena energy person."
