It has been a while since Will Smith released any new music as the blockbuster, A-list actor has instead been focused more on making movies, including his upcoming film with son Jaden Smith, ‘After Earth.’ Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith’s son Jaden and daughter Willow have kept the Smith name relevant in the music business. Jaden who has released a mixtape titled ‘The Cool Cafe,’ as Willow has signed with RocNation and released a couple hit singles. Will’s elder son Trey has recently been spinning and producing house style music. These days, it seems as though Smith is preoccupied collaborating with members of his family, but imagine Will and Kanye West in the studio together, wouldn’t that be something.
Still, it has been a while since Will Smith released any new music, his most recent project was ‘Lost and Found.’ Even with the release of the third installment of his Men in Black film, Will did not release a lead single for the soundtrack as he had in the past with previous Men in Black films.
Recently, in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres along with son Jaden, it was said that Will Smith wants to do something with his older son Trey who is a DJ as well as collaborate with son Jaden and daughter Willow. Will also mentioned about the family singing around the dinner table for a family member’s birthday or other special occasion. It’s clear the Smith family is a talented, and musical family including mom Jada who also sings and not long ago was in a band called Wicked Wisdom. The band experienced some success as it toured and performed worldwide and also put out an album. The music is a total 360 from what husband Will ever released as it fits into the heavy metal genre and unlike Will’s music has explicit lyrics. However, Jada shortly after her band’s tour, announced that the band had disbanded. Jada wanting to focus more on her family including helping her children in their careers.
Now, Will Smith may be returning to the music scene and this time has sparked rumors of Will he and Kanye collaborating. Will Smith recently spoke on him being in the studio with Kanye West and being a bit inspired by Yeezy.
“I been messing around with Kanye. We went into the studio a couple times, so I might get the bug. I’m not going to do it unless I’m truly inspired, but Kanye’s been pushing me a little bit,” Will Smith said in a recent interview.
Now, if Will Smith does collaborate with Kanye, it should make for some really good music but let’s hope first that Will Smith gets inspired enough to release another album for his fans.
“Yeezus” Kanye West’s upcoming and highly anticipated album is set for release on June 18th
“After Earth” starring Will and Jaden Smith hits theatres worldwide May 31.
