Will Smith, DJ Khaled Drop New Song “Friend Like Me” From ‘Aladdin’ Movie Soundtrack: Listen
Will Smith has teamed up with DJ Khaled for "Friend Like Me," a cut off the soundtrack to Disney's live-action Aladdin remake.
With Khaled's signature ad-libs at his back, Will puts his spin on the classic Aladdin cut that appeared in the original 1992 animated film.
"Just a lamp and a rub away from whatever you want/Habibi let me show you the dream," Will raps. "Just whisper if you don't want to shout out what you need/But I promise you ain't never had a friend like me!"
The soundtrack is available now and features Will for the majority of it. The Four contestant Zhavia Ward also appears, performing alongside Zayn on their remake of "A Whole New World."
Earlier this year, Will spoke about taking on the role of the Genie, and his approach to make the character his own while still honoring the late Robin Williams.
“I started to feel confident that I could deliver something that was an homage to Robin Williams but was musically different,” he told Entertainment Weekly. “Just the flavor of the character would be different enough and unique enough that it would be in a different lane, versus trying to compete.”
Listen to Will Smith and DJ Khaled's "Friend Like Me" below. Aladdin arrives in theaters on Friday (May 24).
