The hit sci-fi series Men In Black is crash landing back in theaters May 25th. For its third installment, the creators locked down the popular rapper Pitbull to record a knockout theme song for the movie.
"It's an incredible honor to be a part of such an amazing franchise as Men in Black and I have so much respect for Will Smith, especially with our similar musical backgrounds," said an excited Pitbull about being given the opportunity to help elevate the film with his musical talents.
The song that Pitbull wrote is called "Back in Time" and is based off of the films main plot, considering that Will Smith has to go back in time in this upcoming Men In Black film. Pitbull explained his reason for making the song for the film:
"Wanting to keep the music fun yet modern, we used the slogan of the movie and flipped it back into the song that 'in order to understand the future, you have to go back in time."
Pitbiull's "Back in Time" will feature a sample of the 1950's song "Love Is Strange" by Mickey and Sylvia, and will be aired nationwide on March 26.
