Pitbull teamed up with singer Rhea to record a new, oceanic version of Toto's classic song "Africa."

This rendition is called "Ocean to Ocean" and features Pitbull rapping the verses while Rhea comes in with the "Africa" chorus. The track is from the film Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa as the title character.

"The ocean, the sea and any body of water, to me, is true freedom," said Pitbull in a statement. "The ocean has always been the border from where my parents came from Cuba and the United States, which gives us freedom. That’s why I respect water. Bottom line: water gives us freedom."

The soundtrack will also feature an original score by composer Rupert Gregson-Willams, best known for also composing the 2017 Wonder Woman score.
