A new song by Japanese hip-hop group HONEST BOYZ(R) will grace the ending credits of the upcoming Detective Pikachu movie ready to hit Japanese theaters May 3.

The track by the five-member group, called "Electricity," features Lil Uzi Vert and is produced by Pharrell Williams.

"When I first heard from (music producer) VERBAL about this collaboration between HONEST BOYZ(R) and Pharrell, I immediately saw the connection with the movie, because they're also a gifted fusion group that ventured out globally from Japan," producer Cale Boyter shared. "This will also be a great opportunity for our movie to reach the group's worldwide audience."

"Electricity" will be HONEST BOYZ(R)'s first song to be featured in a Hollywood film, and will mark their global debut.

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu will be released in theaters May 3 in Japan, and May 10 in the U.S.
