Tough, right?

It was “Switch,” from 2005:

That’s a loooooong time ago. How long?

That’s the same year YouTube was founded.

Apparently, during a trip to Colombia, Smith heard the band’s song “Fiesta,” and hit them up ASAP.

Smith was inspired to collaborate with them and Bomba Estereo said, “Umm, YES.”

Simon Mejia, founder of Bomba Estereo: “This opportunity to work with Will was beyond anything we have dreamed of. It’s not a traditional featuring — it’s just magic.”

So there you have it. Now get back to dancing.
