Will Smith returned to the rap spotlight as The Fresh Prince while performing a remix of Bomba Estéreo’s “Fiesta” during an interview on Beats 1 Radio.
Smith revealed that he has been recording in the studio in between filming “The Suicide Squad,” a highly anticipated superhero movie. He says he has recorded about seven tracks that he is truly happy with.
Smith says his return as The Fresh Prince hasn’t been easy because it has been a struggle to find his “creative groove.” But with unrevealed collaborations in the mix of his recording, he is sure to blaze a trail back to creativity.
A record release date is still to be determined but Smith did confirm plans on touring next summer with DJ Jazzy Jeff. Smith claims this will be the biggest tour of his career to date.
