Pit's going back to black.
Rapper Pitbull has penned and recorded the theme song to the highly anticipated action adventure comedy Men in Black 3. It's titled "Back In Time" and will be available as a digital single and released to radio on March 26, while Men in Black 3 will be released in 3D in theaters nationwide on May 25, 2012.
"Back In Time" was written for the film by Armando C. Perez (Pitbull), Marc Kinchen, Adrian Trejo and Urales Vargas and features a sample of the 1950s hit "Love is Strange," written by Sylvia Robinson, Ellas McDaniel and Mickey Baker, which went to #1 for the R&B duo Mickey & Sylvia.
"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," says Pitbull. "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.'"
Barry Sonnenfeld, the director of the film, added, "My 19-year-old daughter turned me on to Pitbull. I'm thrilled that he wrote such a great song for our movie that totally gets it."
Generations collide, that's for sure.
We bet Pit gave his "everything" when writing this song. We cannot wait to hear it.
