Will Smith takes Spain by storm, catching Janelle Monae in action, and can’t stop singing her praises.

On Wednesday (July10), the Fresh Prince took to Instagram, dropping a video clip from his adventures in Madrid, where he crashed the singer-songwriter’s set.

The clip starts with Smith signing autographs for eager fans before the “I Like That” artist greeted him, saying, “You made it!”

The footage then cuts to the four-time Grammy Award-winning rapper vibing backstage to Janelle’s electrifying set at the annual Mad Cool Festival, held at Iberdrola Music.

“Fantastic. That’s my first time ever seeing her perform live,” he shared. “She’s ridiculous.”

He continued: “I’m always watching as a student as well as a fan. I love how she created – she has her own unique thing. Yeah, all the way the truth.”

“Ayy @janellemonae thanx for letting me crash your set in Madrid. You are the TRUTH! I need to rock some of them outfits for my show,” he wrote in the caption.

Other artists slated to grace the stage include Dua Lipa, Avril Lavigne, Pearl Jam, Måneskin, The Killers, Sum 41, Tom Odell, Janelle Monáe, Arlo Parks and The Smashing Pumpkins.

Last week, Will Smith graced the BET Awards stage with a performance of his latest release, “You Can Make It,” featuring the Sunday Service Choir, Chandler Moore, and Kirk Franklin.

Smith began the performance standing on a fiery stage, rapping lyrics that included: “The darker the hell you gotta endure / The brighter the heaven you get to enjoy / The harder the fall, the higher you soar / God opens a window when the devil closes the door / Believe me, they tried to bleed Will Smith / In the rearview, I see adversity was the gift / To lift me higher gifts requires faith / So dry your eyes and then you’ll find a way / Out of the madness, out of the maze / And out of the saddest into the rays / The darkest of nights turns into day / And every storm runs out of rain.

In the days leading up to the performance, Smith teased the song on social media, showcasing a hidden talent as he played the piano like a seasoned pro.
