Just when it seemed like Will Smith had abandoned his musical past for good (it’s been over 10 years since “Switch”!), the rapper-turned-actor showed up on a remix of Bomba Estéreo’s “Fiesta.” Smith raps in English and Spanish on the track, released Friday.
“When I was told that Will Smith wanted to collaborate on a remix with Bomba, I couldn’t believe it,” founder of the Columbian band Simon Mejia said in a statement. “This opportunity to work with Will was beyond anything we have dreamed of. … It’s just magic.”
“Fiesta” received a nomination for record of the year at the Latin Grammys, which take place Nov. 19. Smith is a four-time Grammy award winner himself, and we can only hope his guest appearance with Bomba Estéreo means the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star’s music-making days aren’t entirely behind him.
