Will Smith is returning to the stage — for the Latin Grammy Awards!
Before the performance, Smith shared a selfie of himself with Anthony, 50, and Bad Bunny, 24, on Instagram, writing, “Putting that sauce on rehearsals before our performance at the #LatinGrammys Tonight! @marcanthony @badbunnypr.”
As the trio rapped and a slew of dancers swayed in the background, the performance gained a round of applause from those in the audience.
Fans posted videos of the trio’s performance on Instagram with one writing, “#marcanthony & #willsmith … #LatinGRAMMYS Big Willie Style!”
The three men debuted their new song in September which Smith said was to wrap up his “birthday week.”
In the song, Smith raps a blend of English and Spanish, singing, “Blend my Philly way now, with your Latina sway now/ Sacude tu cadera, always taking pictures, laughing, blowing kisses/ I think you’re delicious.”
“Está Rico” is the fulfillment of a longtime dream of Smith and Anthony’s.
“Will and I have always wanted to work on a musical collaboration,” Anthony said in a press release obtained by Billboard. “This song seems perfect for this moment we’re both experiencing creatively. Working with Bad Bunny for the first time has been a great surprise. We all had a magnificent chemistry, and that energy is palpable in both the music and the video.”
The two pals have shared moments from their friendship on Instagram before, including a video from March in which Anthony taught him how to salsa dance on a boat.
Meanwhile, Bad Bunny — born Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio — has been collaborated with some of the biggest artists in the world without having dropped his debut album.
