This is the first time that co-star Will Smith has not recorded the Men In Black
theme himself. His 1997 track "Men in Black
" led the UK singles chart in the summer of 1997, but wasn't released as a single in the US so wasn't eligible for a chart position. Smith then recorded "Black Suits Comin' (Nod Ya Head)" for Men in Black II
in 2002. "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," said Pitbull in a statement.
