Go Behind-the-Scenes of Pitbull's 'Back in Time' Video Shoot (Exclusive Photos)
Pitbull is going "Back in Time."
Now that the hit song has officially taken over the airwaves, the rapper has filmed a music video for his Men In Black III theme song. In these exclusive behind-the-scenes photos, Pitbull can be seen wining and dining (make that vodka-ing) a beautiful brunette at a Chinese restaurant.
The infectious song features Pitbull’s signature vocals against a sample from Mickey and Sylvia’s 1950s hit “Love is Strange.” The release marks the first time that franchise-star Will Smith has not recorded the film’s theme song himself, previously offering “Men In Black” and “Black Suits Comin’ (Nod Ya Head)” for the first two movies.
And for the video’s obligatory product placement, it appears that Pitbull and Fergie's own brand of low-cal Voli vodka is the rapper’s poison of choice. Cheers!
The video will likely feature snippets from the film itself, but it remains to be seen exactly how much the time-travel theme will play into the video's concept. Find The Hollywood Reporter's exclusive behind-the-scenes photos below.
