Will Smith Plans Comeback Album with Drake
Will Smith is exploring a return to music with a rumoured collaboration with Canadian rapper Drake, almost 10 years after he released his last rap album.
The Men in Black star, who is due to appear in the upcoming DC Comics film Suicide Squad next year, was interviewed on his son Jaden Smith's new Apple radio show Beats 1 when he hinted at his music plans. He revealed that Jaden is inspiring him to write new tunes.
The movie star said: "I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet, but I’m exploring. I’m in a creative ceiling. (Jaden) tells me I have to write out the things I don’t like. I can’t write and stop, I have to keep going and going and write them out."
Smith was left a little red-faced back in February when he first announced his musical plans during an appearance on US TV show Jimmy Kimmel Live! when his former collaborator Skyped into the programme minutes later to offer his musical services to the actor/rapper. Smith then attempted to convince his ex-sidekick he was planning to contact him as soon as his interview was over.
