Will Smith Will Perform w/ Bomba Estereo At The Latin Grammys

Will Smith shows no sign of letting up when it comes to repping his new musical-partners-in-crime Bomba Estereo, and we'll be the last to complain about it. News came Monday of Smith's booking at the upcoming Latin Grammy awards, which will be broadcasted live from Las Vegas's MGM Grand Garden Arena on November 19 at 8 p.m. on Univision. He'll be performing his portion of "Fiesta (Remix)," which dropped earlier this month and constituted the rapper-turned-actor-turned-rapper's triumphant return to hip-hop.

“It’s truly an honor for me to perform at the Latin Grammys,” Smith said in an interview with People en Español. “To be surrounded with so many artists who have made such an impact globally is really exciting to me.” The Latin Grammys performance will reportedly be the first time that Smith has rocked "Fiesta" live and on stage with the Bombas. It was just last week that the song's official video—a dramatic and borderline post-apocalyptic warehouse carnival party that seemed to harken back to Smith's action movie theatrics. With news that Smith has recorded over 20 new songs and plans to go into the studio with his longtime collaborator DJ Jazzy Jeff in the near future, the news of this live performance only adds to the speculation that we are truly on the verge of a full-on comeback.
