Meet the Newest Man in Black, Pitbull!

Global pop sensation Pitbull performs the theme song for the upcoming Men in Black 3, and we're on the set of his Back in Time music video!
Listen closely and you may recognize the signature guitar riff and chorus in Back in Time – it's sampled from the 1950s hit song Love is Strange by R&B duo Mickey & Sylvia, which topped the charts at No. 1 in 1956.
In the long-awaited third installment of the fun sci-fi comedy franchise, it's clear that Agents J (Will Smith) and K (Tommy Lee Jones) are feeling too old to battle unwieldy aliens day in and day out. But when history is somehow rewritten and K ceases to exist, J must travel back in time to put things right, teaming up with a younger version of K (played by a pitch-perfect Josh Brolin) in 1969 to save his partner, the agency, and the future of humankind.
Pitbull, aka Armando C. Perez, sports his own version of the signature Men in Black suits and glasses, and throws his hat in the ring as a new character in the video, "Agent A." Watch and enjoy!
Back in Time is available now on iTunes, while Men in Black 3 lands in theaters nationwide on May 25.
