Titled "Back In Time," Pitbull along with Marc Kinchen, Adrian Trejo and Urales Vargas wrote the song for the film which he has completed recording. His participation in the soundtrack also includes a sampling 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. Director Barry Sonnenfeld, the director of the film, was turned on to Pitbull by his 19-year-old daughter. Pitbull said in a press release that he wanted to keep the song fun, modern and incorporated the theme of the plot in which Agent J (Will Smith) goes back in time to help his partner Agent K in the past.
Pitbull expressed his excitement to work with Will Smith who he admires as an actor and musician. “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.
Pitbull’s critically acclaimed sixth studio album, Planet Pit, was named Best Party Album by Entertainment Weekly. The album features pop music luminaries such as Marc Anthony, Enrique Iglesias, Jamie Foxx, and Chris Brown as well as star-studded producers Dr. Luke, Max Martin and David Guetta. The album’s knockout single, “Give Me Everything,” featuring Ne-Yo, Nayer and Afrojack, reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Top 40 Mainstream and Rhythm charts. In addition to his chart-topping success, Pitbull starred in the season premiere episode of VH1’s music documentary series Behind The Music and is currently spotlighted in this month’s GQ Magazine. He has also been nominated for an outstanding 11 awards at this year’s Billboard Latin Music Awards and will receive the BMI Latin Music Awards President’s Award, the top honor at the ceremony.
About MEN IN BLACK 3
In Men in Black 3, Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are back... in time. J has seen some inexplicable things in his 15 years with the Men in Black, but nothing, not even aliens, perplexes him as much as his wry, reticent partner. But when K’s life and the fate of the planet are put at stake, Agent J will have to travel back in time to put things right. J discovers that there are secrets to the universe that K never told him -- secrets that will reveal themselves as he teams up with the young Agent K (Josh Brolin) to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind. Barry Sonnenfeld directs the film. The film’s screenplay is written by Etan Cohen, based on the Malibu Comic by Lowell Cunningham. Walter F. Parkes and Laurie MacDonald produce, and Steven Spielberg and G. Mac Brown are the executive producers.
