The timeless melody of Alton Ellis’ 1969 hit song ‘Pearls’ has graced the soundtrack of the newly premiered American spy comedy-drama television series, “Mr. & Mrs. Smith.”

Regarded as a cornerstone of the Rocksteady genre and an icon in the reggae music scene, the late Alton Ellis continues to make waves years after his passing.

The inclusion of ‘Pearls’ in the series’ soundtrack serves as a testament to Ellis’ enduring legacy and the enduring appeal of his music.

The series, created by Francesca Sloane and Donald Glover, draws inspiration from the 2005 film of the same name and premiered on February 2, 2024, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.


Starring Glover himself alongside Maya Erskine, the show promises a fresh take on the beloved spy comedy genre.

Episode two of the first season, which aired recently, featured the soulful strains of ‘Pearls,’ enhancing the ambiance and adding a touch of vintage charm to the on-screen action.

The song’s inclusion not only enriches the viewing experience for audiences but also pays homage to the rich cultural tapestry of reggae music.
