Why Pitbull and Chris Brown should have taken APUSH……
I don’t know for sure, but I’m guessing that Pitbull and Chris Brown did not take APUSH. If they did, they forgot an important concept from the course; the definition of international.
Released in 2011, the song focuses on places Pitbull has traveled through his stardom. What I want to focus on is the chorus of the song, which is sung by Chris Brown:
You put it down like New York City
I never sleep
Wild like Los Angeles
Hotter than Miami
I feel the heat
Ohh, girl, this international love
Ohh, this international love
Inter means 2 or more. (For example, in the court case Gibbons v. Ogden, John Marshall stated that only Congress can control INTERstate trade – trade between two or more states.) For more info on that court case and other John Marshall cases, click here:
In the chorus, Pitbull and Chris Brown mention cities that are located ONLY in the United States; thus it is not international love. It should be intranational (intra, meaning within the country) love.
Make sure you understand this important concept in APUSH.
