Will Smith has unveiled the music video for his remix of Bomba Estéreo's track "Fiesta." The verse he laid down was the first we had from the movie star and multi-platinum recording artist in a decade. The new video finds the "Get Jiggy With It" rapper at some warehouse rave with the Bomba Estéreo crew in the main room providing the soundtrack to a large crew of dancers.
Everyone is dressed up or down in what could be considered traditional jungle attire with face paint and jewelry around their limbs as they dance vigorously around this building. The entertainer then comes into screen for his verse as he becomes really, really excited to be there dancing to the half-Dutch house, half-Latin influenced beat.
The new remix is Will Smith's first bit of music in nearly 10 years. While it may not be the most lyrically gifted verse Smith has ever done in his life, it is still fun and good to have Mr. Smith back in the game again. "Gotta be blatant, walk up behind her / No gassing me, I'm a Tesla / Teach game, sensei, professor / Will Smith estrella the fresh one," he says.
He recently spoke to Zane Lowe on Beats 1 about his plans in music going forward and revealed a possible world tour with DJ Jazzy Jeff. He is in the studio now working on his next album and according to Smith, he has 30 songs already done, but is happy with seven of them. He is working with Kanye West and his son Jaden Smith on some new music, so let's hope we get some magic from that combo.
