Will Smith called in to his son Jaden's Beats 1 radio show MSFTS Frequency to talk Suicide Squad, familial dynamics, and the constant stream of creativity clearly present in the Smith lineage. During their conversation, Jaden casually asked Will about his future musical prospects, prompting Will to quietly reveal a current collaborator — Drake.

Will thanks Jaden for "inviting him to the group chat" which supposedly led to the possible collaboration, though he's quick to admit that he's still not completely satisfied with the new songs thus far. As previously reported, Will has already recorded at least seven songs with Kanye West and cites Jaden as his inspiration for exploring a return to music:

"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."

You shouldn't need us to remind you that Will Smith classics like "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It," "Just the Two of Us," and "Miami" still stand as certified heat nearly twenty years later.
