We Miss Will Smith: Listen To Pitbull’s “Back In Time” From ‘Men In Black 3’

We Miss Will Smith: Listen To Pitbull's "Back In Time" From 'Men In Black 3'

Listen, the Will Smith songs for the first two “Men In Black” movies weren’t great. In fact, there were pretty cornball terrible. Yet, their earnest wholesomeness and the fact that they were actually about the movie, made them oddly endearing in a strange way and when “Men In Black III” was first announced, we figured it was a no brainer that Big Willie would step back behind the mic. We were mistaken. Last week it was announced that the pretty awful singer/rapper/whatever Pitbull would be penning the song and now the results are here. You’ve been warned.

Relying pretty heavily on the hook from Sylvia & Mickey‘s “Love Is Strange,” the song is basically Pitbull yelling at you for three minutes about men in black or something, over a pretty lazy beat that seems like a leftover from a an LMFAO song that even they forgot about. Also: “Don’t you know I don’t give a number two” might be the worst lyric of the year.

Anyway, judge for yourself and listen below and then compare/contrast with Will Smith’s previous efforts. You’ll see what we mean. You’ll have an extra reason to skip the credits when “Men In Black III” opens on May 25th. [ComingSoon]
