Remezcla reports that Smith was introduced to the Columbian band Bomba Estereo by Marc Anthony, and then went on to produce his first new song in more than a decade, Fiesta, with them. Performing an EDM remix of their collaboration, the 47-year-old rapper and the Latino band had the crowd on their feet dancing.

Before the award show, Bomba Estereo founder and multi-instrumentalist Simon Mejia told Fox News Latino

“This collaboration is a sign of how music and culture in Latin America is every day much stronger and how the industry in the US and Europe is increasingly looking toward Latin America. Will Smith is an example of this. He is a huge film and music star that chose to collaborate with a band from Latin America before choosing to work with a North American group.”

Fiesta was nominated for record of the year at the Latin Grammys. Will Smith is also reportedly going on tour with Dj Jazzy Jeff very soon.
