Next weekend the next massive comic book hero epic, “Aquaman”, debuts in theaters. Ahead of that holiday blockbuster release the promotional hype has begun, and that includes the release of the soundtrack today.

One touted track features Miami’s Pitbull, and it is a remake of majestic proportions.

You read that correctly. Pitbull took Toto’s classic anthem “Africa,” and converted it into a dancehall angry ‘rapfest’. It is a perfect marriage of elements that never should have been introduced, let alone permitted to date and develop a relationship.

WARNING: This song may induce sea-sickness.

There may be no better assessment of what has happened here than this:

Summed – up.

Nothing left but to find out if enough damage has been made to this DC Comics movie to declare Pitbull the musical equivalent of Zach Snyder.
