Will Smith is having a good year.
It seems like the culture turned on Will Smith for a few years. After reaching heights of stardom that only a few other actors have touched, Smith starred in several movies that weren’t received well by audiences. It didn’t help that he was snubbed at the Oscars for his performance in Consussion, and that Suicide Squad was ridiculed by critics. At some point in 2018, Smith must have decided that he was ready for a major comeback and the multi-talented artist took over social media.
Smith teamed up with Nicky Jam, Diplo, and singer and songwriter Era Istrefi to create the official anthem for the FIFA World Cup. Entitled “Live It Up,” the catchy single sounds like a mix of reggae and electronic vibes with a slight hip-hop twist. Smith, Nicky Jam, ad Istrefi will perform the song tomorrow (July 15) at the closing ceremony for the soccer World Cup at Moscow’s Luzhniki stadium. France is facing Croatia in the finals, and the former is heavily favored to win. This will be Croatia’s first World Cup finals appearance, and they had to fight to reach this match. France has had a much easier road getting to the finals, but this match-up could prove to be their undoing.
