The sure to be very high grossing film, Men In Black III, is coming to theaters this summer. Although music fans will not have to wait long for the theme song for the upcoming blockbuster. As the very popular music artist, Pitbull has wrote “Back In Time”. The song will feature a sample from the 50’s song “Love Is Strange” by Mickey & Sylvia, and will be sure to get lots of airplay as Pitbull’s most recent single “Give Me Everything” has had performed very well on music charts.
Pitbull’s knack for catchy music makes it a smart move for the people at Sony Pictures to enlist Pitbull’s services for the theme song. The director of Men In Black III, Barry Sonnnfeld, has certainly been made aware of Pitbull’s success.
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.
Now it will definitely be an unusual turn for this series as we won’t get a theme song from the star of the series Will Smith himself as “Men In Black” & “Black Suits Comin'” were both very popular tracks for the previous two installments of these films. As Pitbull has looked up to Will Smith he is very eager to tackle this theme song and make it a success.
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. 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
Men In Black III is set to come out in theaters worldwide on May 25, 2012, while Pitbulls “Back In Time” is set to be released as a digital single and for radio play on March 26th. So it won’t be very long before a lot of us are jamming to the newest Men In Black theme.
