Drums Please! Will Smith Raps on “Summertime” Remake and Chris Brown Performs on “Today”
By the sound of things, Will Smith might be well on his way to a comeback in the hip-hop game…
Naaaaa, just kidding.
He did, however, get in the booth and drop a verse on a new version of he and DJ Jazzy Jeff’s classic track, “Summertime,” this one entitled “Summertime 3.” This is just a snippet, but it seems like they’re going to let that “Summer Madness” sample shine through, and it also sounds like Will might need a throat lozenge. He was sounding a bit on the froggy side. The remake is for DJ Jazzy Jeff and Mic Boogie’s mixtape together coming out soon. The song in full will be available on June 11, but in the meantime and in between times, check this preview out:
And here’s the original just in case you forgot what it sounds like…
If that’s not enough for you, you’ll be happy to know that Chris Brown, aka, “Happy Feet” as I like to call him, performed for the “Today Show” and their summer concert series this morning. He did a few songs, including joints like “Forever” and the new song, “Don’t Wake Me Up,” but our favorite performances were of him doing “Yeah 3x” and “Turn Up the Music.” Why? Because he danced AND sang (without auto-tune on these two). Check out both performances below and get your footwork on at your desk (while still sitting in your chair of course).
And here’s a performance of “Turn Up the Music”
