We haven’t heard new music from Will Smith since 2005’s Lost and Found album, so his Spanglish contribution on the remix for Bomba Estereo’s Grammy-nominated song “Fiesta” comes as a shocking and welcomed surprise. The Guardian reports Smith heard the song during a visit to Colombia and was so moved by the jam he requested to be featured.
“When I was told that Will Smith wanted to collaborate on a remix with Bomba, I couldn’t believe it,” band founder Simon Mejia said in a statement. “This opportunity to work with Will was beyond anything we have dreamed of … It’s just magic.”
Perhaps it’s the start to Smith’s anticipated return. He enlisted the help of Kanye West on new tunes, saying earlier this year: “I went into the studio with Kanye. I’m thinking about it. 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.”
