Will Smith Delivers Fresh Rhymes on Bomba Estereo’s ‘Fiesta’ Remix
Big Willy is back. Will Smith delivers his first rap verse in 10 years as a featured artist on the remix for Bomba Estéreo's "Fiesta."
It seems the rapper formerly known as the Fresh Prince can still lay down smooth bars over party anthems too. "Hola mamacita / Go get me a beer-a / The track is the heat-a / I couldn't let the beat go by without a feature," he rhymes over the upbeat dance track. "No gasoline, I'm a Tesla / Teach game, sensei, professor / Will Smith, Estéreo, the Fresh One."
According to the Associated Press, there's a forthcoming visual to go along with the Colombian band's song as well as the "Miami" rapper rhyming in Spanish.
Fans should have caught on to the collaboration when the Hitch actor posted a photo with the group to congratulate them on their Latin Grammy Award nomination this month. It seems Smith was the one to suggest that they work together too.
"When I was told that Will Smith wanted to collaborate on a remix with Bomba, I couldn't believe it," said the band's founder, Simon Mejia in a statement. "This opportunity to work with Will was beyond anything we have dreamed of... It's just magic."
The Grammy Award-winning artist also hinted at working with Kanye West earlier this year.
"I went into the studio with Kanye. I'm thinking about it. I'm exploring," he said in February. "I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet, but I'm exploring. I'm in a creative ceiling. My son tells me I have to write out the things I don’t like. I can't write and stop – I have to keep going and going and write them out. I've never worked like that before, but I think I might give that a shot."
Smith's acting career has been booming as well. He's set to star in Concussion as Dr. Bennet Omalu, a Nigerian doctor who goes up against the NFL after discovering the dangers of football. The 47-year-old will also join the super hero world as he takes on the role of an assassin named Deadshot in DC's Suicide Squad.
