Will Smith hints at warming up for new music
Will Smith is making new music.
After releasing the one-off single “Get Lit” last year, it seems the Fresh Prince is ready to release even more music. He recently shared videos on YouTube and Instagram that show him in the studio.
On Instagram, the video, which shows off a lengthy rap performed by the star, was captioned: “Gettin’ back in the studio. Just warmin’ Up.”
Smith posted the same video on YouTube but in a longer format, in which he explained why his music career took a back seat.
He said: “At my peak, I was doing a television show, a movie and an album every year. So like, just churning out that kind of creativity. What happens is you get to a point where you get empty.”
But now, he says he’s “re-energized” and ready to top the charts once again.
He added: “I’m excited. I’m creating wildly like I used to. I’m ready.”
In the clip, Smith can be seen rapping to what appears to be a new track, and the lyrics explain his decision to return to music.
He raps: “I got inspired, quickly I unretired, the Fresh Prince just rewired and slightly demodified.”
Despite having taken time away from music himself, Smith’s musical spirit has continued through his family, as his 17-year-old daughter, Willow, had a smash hit with her 2010 single “Whip Ma Hair,” and his 19-year-old son, Jaden, released his debut studio album “Syre” in December.
