Will Smith, Jimmy Fallon, and an iPad app — who knew this combination could be so glorious?
Smith was a guest on The Tonight Show on Thursday evening and Fallon wanted to make some music with the Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It rapper. To do so, the talk show host brought out his iPad and launched a $2.99 app called Loopy, which lets users layer looped recordings to produce beats. Fallon used the app with Billy Joel about a year ago to do something similar.
Smith and Fallon worked together to make a beat and eventually put on their own rendition of It Takes Two. The result was awesome:
Fallon has been on a viral video streak as of late. The clip with Smith already has more than 1 million views; Fallon’s recreation of “Saved By The Bell” has almost 20 million views; his “Password” game video and duet with Neil Young both have more than 2 million views; the lip-synching battle with Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, and Fallon himself has nearly 25 million views; and his A Cappella version of “We Are The Champions” with a host of musicians is nearly at 5 million views. And these were all produced just this week — impressive, right?
