AllMusic Review by

With the release of the Meltdown EP, Pitbull fans who bought the original edition of the Global Warming album get all the bonus tracks from the later Deluxe Edition, and boy are they a bonus. Biggest win of them all is "Timber," the hick-hop-meets-Miami party anthem with Ke$ha delivering the infectious and cheeky chorus ("It's goin' down/I'm yellin' 'Timber'") but "That High" with Kelly Rowland runs a close second, combining EDM and deep house music with superstar DJ David Guetta at the controls. Interesting that Sean Combs uses that same combo for the later and lesser "All the Things" with Inna, but the great "Do It" with Mayer Hawthorne is fun, fly, and funny ("My life coulda turned out ugly/I mean ugly, Janet Reno") while "Sun in California" with Mohombi is bright, light, and attractive EDM-hip-hop-pop.
