If you've ever listened to any of Pitbull's music, you already know — he changed his life "from a negative to a positive." And now, the superstar is here to deliver some words of wisdom and positivity to the Class of 2020 as they take their next steps in life through iHeartRadio's "Commencement: Speeches for the Class of 2020" podcast.

The Class of 2020 may be missing out on their commencement ceremonies this year due to the coronavirus pandemic, but according to Pitbull, they must remember that they are "the most historical class of all time right now — that's powerful."

In Pitbull's commencement speech, he explains how this is the generation and the class that's going to make a difference in the world, even as humanity faces one of the most difficult uncertain times. He says:

"You are the leaders of the new world. Forget about generation Gen Z or generation millennials — you guys are generation standup, you guys are generation make a difference, you guys are generation gonna change the world. So, Class of 2020 is a special class, historical class, powerful class. Class of 2020 is 20/20 — clear vision; that's vision and wisdom." He added later on, "In this new world, you are the ones that are going to make a difference."

In closing, he shared these final words — an inspiring acronym: "Remember: FEAR — Face Everything And Rise."
