Did you almost forget, maybe if only for a second that Will Smith was a Grammy-Award winning rapper? While promoting a film, Will may perform a medley of his greatest hits but it’s been 10 years since the release of his last album, “Lost & Found” in March 2005.
Having accomplished so much in his career already, all we needed from Will was for he and Jada to keep being our #RelationshipGoals.
However the Fresh Prince has the world going crazy with his new verse on the Colombian dance group Bomba Estéreo‘s song, “Fiesta.” According to Rolling Stone, Will was recently in Columbia and when he heard the track, it inspired him to come out of rap retirement!
The actor will also appear in the music video for the song out later this month. “Hola mamacita / Go get me a beer-a / The track is the heat / I couldn’t let the beat go by without a feature,” raps Will.
While “Fiesta” isn’t his strongest verse to date, it’s great to have him back! Will recently said he’s been recording some tracks with a huge producer and contemplating a comeback.
“I went into the studio with Kanye. I’m thinking about it. I’m exploring,” he shared in an interview with The Guardian. “I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet, but I’m exploring. I’m in a creative ceiling.”
While we wait on the possibility of more new music, Will is definitely be returning to the big screen this year in the highly anticipated and controversial film, Concussion. He’s also apart of the all-star ensemble cast of the 2016 film, Suicide Squad which also features Viola Davis and Common.
Check out the song below. Are you “getting jiggy” with Will Smith’s return to music? Do you want to hear more or should he stick to acting?
