Will Smith Perform A New Song at the 2024 BET Awards

Will Smith, winner of many Grammys and Oscars, will make his solo music debut at the 2024 BET Awards on Sunday, June 30, with the launch of a new song. The network revealed that Taraji P. Henson would host the awards presentation, where his unique performance would take place live.

“From his start as a rapper to The Fresh Prince to being a box office king as one of the Bad Boys, Will Smith is truly a global icon, and we are honored to welcome him back to grace the BET Awards stage,” said Connie Orlando, EVP Specials, Music Programming, and Music Strategy at BET. “We look forward to Will adding to yet another defining night for the culture that is not to be missed.”

Smith is the latest addition to an impressive roster of performers at this year’s BET Awards, which also include Ice Spice, Tyla, Victoria Monét, GloRilla, Latto, Muni Long, Sexy Red, and Shaboozey. Ms. Lauryn Hill will also sing with her son, YG Marley, and Tanner Adell, a country artist, will take the stage at BET Amplified.

Details regarding Smith’s next single are unknown, although it will be his first significant release since his 2005 album Lost and Found. He also released an EDM tune called “Get Lit” in 2017. Since then, the Bad Boys: Ride or Die actor has only made a few musical collaborations with singers such as Bad Bunny, Marc Anthony, and Joyner Lucas.

Smith last played live in April at Coachella 2024, when he made a surprise appearance during J Balvin’s UFO-themed performance, reviving his Men in Black days. To the pleasure of fans, the rapper performed the franchise’s title tune (in full costume as Agent J), which served as the first single from the 1997 soundtrack and was included on his debut album, Big Willie Style.

Smith recently collaborated with reggae superstar Sean Paul on the soundtrack of his new Bad Boys flick, “Light Em Up.” In terms of new music, the I Am Legend 2 actor told Extra that he has “been in the lab” working on new songs for the last year and a half.

“I have a project that is, without question, the most personal and powerful music that I’ve ever made,” Smith told us. “So, you know, I’m going to sneak that out on you in a month or so.”

On Sunday, June 30, at 8 p.m. ET/PT, the network will broadcast the 2024 BET Awards live.
