The Word: Is Will Smith going to release a new album?
Will Smith may be heading back to the music world, and if he does we have Kanye West to thank.
“I’ve been messing around with Kanye,” Smith tells HipHollywood.com. “We went in the studio a couple times, so I might get the bug. I’m not going to do it unless I’m truly inspired, but [Kanye has] been pushing me a little bit.”
Smith has not released any music since 2005. In a recent interview with Metro, Smith said musically he’s not that poetic with his lyrics but in thinking of the big picture. “My strength is ideas. And record structure. I knew how to make records in the way you get to the hook when the crowd wants it.”
