Will Smith can't leave his first love, and that is his music and even though Smith is more an actor now, he will always look back to music and those he has worked with. The best example for that is his newly released song with an old friend and collaborator DJ Jazzy Jeff that they launched at an EDM rave beat Blackpool's Livewire Festival on Aug 27. Now the live video is out through Facebook and Will Smith hopes his fans and followers would like it, even if it has taken him 12 years to release a new song.

It is definitely 12 long years since the "Men in Black" star has done something about music, as Entertainment Tonight reports, Will Smith's last album was 2005's "Lost and Found." Going way back DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, Will Smith and his childhood friend's last project together was "Lovely Daze" in 1998. With so much luck and success, Will Smith moved on to "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" and still put on appearances of Jazzy Jeff with it.

Now after a more than a decade, Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff has performed again at MTV Presents Summerblast Music Festival 2017 in Croatia and the one at Livewire Festival in Blackpool, England where "Get Lit" was shown. Before that, as PEOPLE reports, Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff planned to make a comeback in 2015 and a summer 2016 tour, but both of which did not happen. Knowing Smith and all, his love for music is never ending as he once revealed in an interview that he has 30 new songs, several of which he hopes to be released.

On his live performance of "Get Lit", Will Smith still hasn't stopped from his inspirational statements; as he enjoys performing, he encourages the audience to "let their light shine." The two artists performed just "the basics" and enjoyed their song regardless of their age and what today's generation expected it to be.
