Pitbull kicked off his summer tour Can’t Stop Us Now late last month with supporting artist Iggy Azalea as the opener.

And on Friday, the rappers rolled into Wantagh, New York for their show at Northwell Health at the Jones Beach Theater, the seventh performance on the trek that runs through the US and Canada until October 19.

Fans can see the Aussie rapper as a special guest until September 4, after which Jamaican dancehall rapper and singer Sean Paul takes the rest of the way from the opening performer.

This double billing is perfect for fans of contemporary hip-hop.

Azalea (born Amethyst Amelia Kelly), 32, first took the stage decked out in a purple short bodysuit that resembled something from an animated movie or series.

The skimpy ensemble, with matching sleeves that came just past her elbows, hugged her famous curves.

She also stepped across the stage, dancing and spinning around the stage in black boots.

To round out her overall look, the Aussie star pulled her dyed blonde locks back into a sleek ponytail and part in the middle.

After Izalea turned the house upside down, it was time for Pitbull, who brought his infectious smile to the stage, decked out in an all-black ensemble consisting of a leather jacket over his shiny button-down shirt and vest.

Miami-based rapper (born Armando Christian Pérez), 41, pretty much stuck to the hits for his share of double billing.

The result was a dance-heavy romp through nearly two decades of club favorites and Latin hip-hop charts, including Fireball, Echa Pa’lla (Manos Pa’Arriba), I Know You Want Me (Calle Ocho), and Give Me Everything.

mr. Worldwide will lead the tour to cities such as San Antonio, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Toronto, Nashville and Orlando, before wrapping up in Hollywood, Florida on October 19.

Pitbull began his career in the early 2000s, recording reggaeton, Latin hip hop and crunk music under a variety of labels.

He would eventually call himself more of the vanity of a pop artist with his Anglophone Planet Pit (2011), which featured his first number one single Give Me Everything (featured Ne-Yo, Afrojack and Nayer).
