The former music duo Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff are back 19 years after their last song together. This time, they’re taking on EDM with their new song “Get It.” The new track debuted over the weekend at the Livewire Festival 2017 at Blackpool’s Tower Headland Arena in England, according to E! News.

The two also performed their classic songs such as “Men In Black,” “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit’ It,” “Girls Ain’t Nothing But Trouble,” “Miami,” and “Just The Two Of Us.”

This is their first collaboration since their 1998’s “Lovely Daze.” Will, who become a Hollywood superstar, has not released a solo album since Lost and Found in 2005.

NME reports that the 48-year-old actor said to the audience that the song was a reaction to the “chaos and confusion in the world.”

“I wanted to make a song that allowed people to let their light shine. We all have an inner light and sometimes this world,” the Hitch star said onstage.

“People can say stuff to you and tell you you can’t do and you know you can but when they tell you that it kinda knocks you down a bit right so I wanted to make a record that reminded each and every one of y’all to let your light shine.”

He added, “Shine those lights, let me see those lights. We’re going to shine those lights, we’re going to brighten up the darkness in this world.”
