Ten years after releasing his last album, Will Smith has returned to the music scene with a new collaboration, Billboard reports.
The new track, a remix of Colombian band Bomba Estereo’s song, “Fiesta,” premiered digitally on Friday.
Smith reportedly discovered the band on a recent trip to Colombia and asked the group if they'd like to team up.
"When I was told that Will Smith wanted to collaborate on a remix with Bomba, I couldn’t believe it," band founder and multi-instrumentalist Simon Mejia said in a statement. "This opportunity to work with Will was beyond anything we have dreamed of. … It’s just magic."
The song, which is nominated for a Latin Grammy in the record of the year category, includes Smith’s rapping in English and Spanish.
Smith congratulated the band on the nomination in a recent Facebook post.
"Felicidades to BOMBA ESTEREO on their Latin Grammy Nominations," he wrote.
Smith's last album, "Lost and Found," was released in 2005.
