People Went In On Will Smith Not Knowing The Words To ‘La Bamba’ And He Clapped Back

Will Smith has no shame when it comes to Instagram. One minute he’s posting about his days as the Fresh Prince, and the next he’s giving his followers inspirational life lessons. But when he’s on vacation, he goes all out. By that we mean, he turns up the nerdy dad routine and delivers comedic moments that will make you cringe. Case in point, his recent vacation to the Cayman Islands and his live rendition of “La Bamba.”

Will Smith thought it would be funny to join the Pandemix steel drum band for their rendition of “La Bamba.”

As you can hear, it’s pretty terrible — but also kind of hilarious. He said it himself: “imagine that in my bad singing voice.”

Smith clearly didn’t know the words to this iconic Mexican folk song, or maybe he was just playing a joke on all of us. Of course people had to voice their opinions in the comments section.

In a follow-up Instagram post, Smith sang “La Bamba” again.

Smith started the video, in Spanish, saying, “Many of you wrote in the comments section that I didn’t know the words to ‘La Bamba.'” He then went in and sang the song at the top of his lungs.

Smith has been showing us his Spanish skills for years so this should no be a surprise.

Even though he’s not singing in Spanish in “Miami,” the entire track has Latin influences and the song includes the Spanish verse: “Bienvenidos a Miami.” Smith was reluctant to include the Spanish at first.

One of the producers told GQ, “It was my idea that the woman would say “Bienvenidos a Miami” which at the time Will was not in favor of as it might confuse non-Spanish speakers. It was Nas who finally convinced him.”

He’s spoken in Spanish on the red carpet.

You have to give the man credit for consistently speaking Spanish over the years with confidence.

And let’s not forget his collaboration with Bomba Estéreo at the Latin Grammy’s.

Keep up the Spanish practice, Will.
