Will Smith's family 'helping with new album'

Will Smith's family is helping him with his upcoming album.

The 'Men in Black' hitmaker, who has won four Grammy Awards, had four Top 10 singles and sold over 20 million albums over the course of his career, has reportedly roped in his 14-year-old daughter Willow and son Jaden, 17, to help him in the recording studio.

A source said: "They're helping him write some material and will even sing a few songs together."

The 47-year-old star also hopes his oldest son Trey, 22, will want to appear on the record.

The insider explained to US OK! magazine: "Trey's a DJ, and Will would love to get him on the record."

The actor is excited to share his new tunes after recently rapping on the track 'Fiesta' by Colombian dance act Bomba Estéreo, his first single in 10 years.

The source said: "He'd forgotten just how much he loves getting a crowd on its feet."

Will previously revealed Kanye West had signed on to produce some of his next album.

Speaking earlier this year, he said: "I spent a week or so with 'Ye and we went into the studio a couple of times and he's trying to get my gassed up.

"You know I've recorded a lot. I've recorded a lot. I don't have anything I like yet, but I've probably recorded around seven or eight [songs]. It's not for certain, it's just explorative."
