Pitbull’s ‘Men In Black 3′ Song “Back In Time”: Listen

Pitbull, taking over the reigns from retired rapper Will Smith, channels two very different, very famous film soundtracks with his Men In Black 3 song “Back In Time”. The Miami MC’s song shares the same title to Huey Lewis & The News’ timeless tune from Back To The Future, and the hook comes right from Micky & Sylvia’s “Love Is Strange”, which you will immediately recognize from Baby and Johnny’s slinky dance rehearsal in Dirty Dancing. But with a dubstep breakdown (how vogue!). If that sounds like an absolute delight for your eardrums, listen below.

As far as Men In Black songs go, this is infinitely better than “Black Suits Comin’ (Nod Ya Head)”, nowhere near as memorable as the original “Forget Me Nots”-sampling “Men In Black”, and basically has nothing to do with aliens. Pretty disappointing.

What do you think of Pitbull’s contribution? Would you have preferred Big Willie to have convinced practically any member of his musically-inclined family to follow in his footsteps and record a MIB theme? Or does Mr. Worldwide’s tune have more lasting power since it barely has anything to do with the sci-fi film?

The Men In Black franchise returns to cinemas on May 25.

    not only is it stupid but its half stolen from “hay baby” from dirty dancing.

    far as i’m concerned it has now become a sort of tradition for will smith to do the theme song for an MIB movie. even nod your head wasn’t too bad, although that’s personal opinion. to break this tradition because the directors daughter likes pitbull and no other reason is a pathetic reason. the dubstep breakdown in it is ridiculous as well and i normally love dubstep

    And that’s not a compliment.. Director PLEASE don’t listen to your daughter in future.. Will Smith should have done the theme tune is just so crap and a dirt dancing dancing rip off. He must have made it in about 20 min with an old mix tape that belonged to Jennifer Grey .. Is men in black 4 going to have Dappy and Tulisa singing it as that’s her new fad? Just such a let down I wish I could be nualized that’s 3 min of my life Ill never get back lol
