Is Joyner Lucas collaborating with Will Smith on a new album?

In an unexpected turn of events, it seems that Will Smith might be returning to music. Rapper Joyner Lucas recently took to Instagram to wish the Hollywood actor a happy birthday and dropped the bombshell that they have been working on a whole album together.

Joyner Lucas, who idolized Will Smith while growing up, expressed his admiration and respect for the star through his song “Will.” But it seems that this collaboration goes beyond just one song. According to Lucas, Will Smith approached him to create an entire album.

In his Instagram post, Lucas wrote, “Dear hero. I never thought I’d ever meet you. Still trips me out that I grew up idolizing you, to then me making a record about my admiration and respect for you, to then you asking me to create a whole album with you.” He also shared a video of himself and Smith collaborating in the studio.

While Will Smith has been primarily focused on his film career and personal life in recent years, true fans know that he started his journey in music.

Although his last full-length project was released in 2005, Will Smith hasn’t completely left the music scene. He has collaborated with artists like Nicky Jam and Logic on singles in recent years. However, the possibility of a full collaborative album has garnered excitement and support from fans.

Fans have taken to social media to express their enthusiasm for this unexpected musical endeavor. One user commented, “You know if it’s got Will in it, it’s gonna slap.” Another user urged Lucas to persuade Will Smith to return to making music. The overall sentiment is one of anticipation and belief in the greatness that can come from this collaboration.

It remains to be seen when this album will be released or what style of music it will feature. Nonetheless, the prospect of a joint project between Will Smith and Joyner Lucas has ignited excitement and speculation among fans. Both artists bring their unique talents to the table, and fans can’t wait to see what they cook up together.
