Pitbull has landed the theme song for this summer’s sure to be box-office hit Men in Black 3, which lands in theaters May 25th.

“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,” Pitbull said.

“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,” he continued.

Pitbull wrote “Back in Time” for the film with Marc Kinchen, Adrian Trejo and Urales Vargas.

The track features a sample of the 1950s song ‘Love Is Strange’ by Mickey and Sylvia.

“Back in Time” plays off of the movie’s theme, as Will Smith must go into the past in the latest M.I.B installment.

The song is set to hit radio stations nationwide March 26 and will be released in the UK on May 6.
