Will Smith & DJ Jazzy Jeff Reunite for Their First New Song in Years

Legendary duo Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff haven't collaborated on a track in years, since Smith's Born to Reign album.

However, it seems like the two have some tracks in the stash. And on Sunday, the two headlined the Livewire Festival in Blackpool, England. During their set — one in which they performed classic cuts like "Girls Ain’t Nothing But Trouble," "Parents Don’t Understand," and "Summertime"— the two premiered a never heard before track seemingly called "Get Lit".

The song is... interesting, to say the least. It's an EDM song, which is a departure for both artists. Speaking about the track, Smith told the audience that "Get Lit" was a response to the “chaos and confusion” out there in the world.

Smith went on to say:

“I wanted to make a song that allowed people to let their light shine. We all have an inner light and sometimes this world…people can say stuff to you and tell you you can’t do and you know you can but when they tell you that it kinda knocks you down a bit right so I wanted to make a record that reminded each and every one of y’all to let your light shine.”

Smith also revealed that the two were working on a new record. Until that drops, watch the DJ and the rapper perform "Get Lit" below.
