Will Smith And Jimmy Fallon Beatbox “It Takes Two” On ‘The Tonight Show’: Watch
Will Smith reunited with Jimmy Fallon during the February 5 episode of The Tonight Show, and to delightful results as always.
After Fallon shows scenes from his recent recreation of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air opening, and Smith discusses the trials of parenting his teenagers Jaden and Willow Smith (hint: hiccuping doesn’t help), the Tonight Show host pulls up an audio looping app on his iPad. They then take turns laying down the beat — what ends up being “It Takes Two,” the 1988 house-meets-rap classic by Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock, and with help from house band the Roots.
Watch Will Smith and Jimmy Fallon beatbox to “It Takes Two” above. Below, revisit their first go at a rap-related collab — their “Evolution of Hip-Hop Dancing,” from the Cabbage Patch to the Humpty Dance and the twerk (sorta) below.
