Will Smith delivered an electrifying and inspirational performance at the BET Awards on Sunday.

Following his unexpected Coachella appearance in April, where he joined J Balvin on stage for a lively performance of his song “Men In Black,” originally tied to his popular 1997 film of the same title, Will’s BET Awards performance continued to captivate audiences.

He returned with his first solo music in over five years, marking his most significant release since the “Lost and Found” album in 2005.

Recently, Will has engaged in occasional collaborations with artists like Bad Bunny and Marc Anthony. In 2017, he released the EDM single “Get Lit” and contributed the track “Light ‘Em Up” with Sean Paul, featured on the soundtrack of his latest film, “Bad Boys: Ride or Die.”

He made a triumphant return to his musical origins with the release of his latest track, “You Can Make It.” Collaborating with Fridayy and the Sunday Service Choir, delivering a powerful rap infusion with gospel themes, focusing on the theme of perseverance.

“The darker the hell you gotta endure / The brighter the heaven you get to enjoy / The harder the fall, the higher you soar,” Will rapped, surrounded by pyrotechnic fire on the stage. “God opens a window when the devil closes the door / Believe me, they tried to bleed Will Smith / In the rearview, I see adversity was the gift / To lift me higher gifts requires faith.”
