Movie News - Pitbull Goes Back in Time for MIB3
If I'm to be completely honest, I was actually a little disappointed that we aren't getting a title track from Mr. Smith himself but maybe that's just because I'm still living in 1997.
Much to my surprise, Pitbull isn't just a cranky breed of dog, it is also the name of a rapper from Miami who has supplied the title track to Men in Black 3, "Back in Time".
Check it out in Pitbull's live performance of the track after the jump!
The theme song to the highly anticipated action adventure comedy Men in Black™ 3, titled “Back In Time,” has been written and recorded by RCA Records/Polo Grounds Music/Mr. 305 recording artist Pitbull.
“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.”
