After a hiatus of 10 years, actor Will Smith is making a comeback as a singer in collaboration with Colombian band Bomba Estereo. He appears in a remixed song of the band called Fiesta. The remix was released digitally on Friday.
The collaboration marks Smith’s return to music since his 2005 album Lost and Found. Smith discovered Bomba Estereo, known for its blend of Latin, tropical and electro sounds, on a recent trip to Colombia. He then asked the group to collaborate.
Smith raps in both English and Spanish on the song. He recently shot a music video for the remix.
