Will Smith sings Summertime on Late Show set
Will Smith may be focusing more on his film career these days, but the Fresh Prince couldn’t resist joining Jon Batiste and Stay Human when they started playing his 1991 hit “Summertime” during a commercial break on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where he appeared to discuss his new film Suicide Squad.
Just as the camera cuts to a break, the house band begin playing the track, which Smith released with DJ Jazzy Jeff, and after a few moments, Smith ditches Colbert and their conversation, runs to the band, and grabs a mic. He then comes in just at the right moment to rap the song’s first verse.
After a minute, he gave the mic back to Batiste and hugged it out, before retreating to Colbert’s desk. Watch the moment:
