On the latest promo single from Kinetics & One Love, featured this evening along with its visual accompaniment, the Northeastern duo consider traveling Back in Time to change the past, but ultimately elect to leave things as they are, for fear that their acts would have far-reaching, unintended consequences. Turns out that didn’t really need to worry about it, because Pitbull‘s already made up his mind to time travel - with all the awesome and/or terrible ramifications that might entail. The theme song to Men in Black™ 3 (I guess Will Smith got sick of doing songs to go with his movies), this record finds beatsmith Big Syphe flipping Mickey and Sylvia’s 1950’s hit, Love Is Strange, into a high-energy backdrop (complete with inexplicably dope dubstep breakdown) as the club heavyweight ponders what he’d do if he had the chance to revisit past eras. The answer, of course, is “party and womanize,” but Pit does pay lip service to some deeper motivations, spitting, “To understand the future, we have have to go back in time.” It has yet to be announced when the soundtrack LP will be available in stores, but those feeling it can look forward to another 90-plus minutes of sci-fi/comedy/action gold May 25, when MIBIII debuts at theaters everywhere.
