If you had been missing Will Smith since his “Switch” days, then you’ve got one person to thank: Marc Anthony. J.

For the first time in 10 years, he released new music, and he joined us in geeking out over the group. “Thank you for allowing me to bathe in your greatness,” Smith tells Bomba.

I have six or seven that I really like.” And that’s how Will Smith took over 2016.
