Are you like Will Smith? He’s in the worst shape of his life. And it’s okay, because that’s all about to change.


After packing on a few pandemic pounds, the 52-year old is “getting his groove back” by getting back in shape.

“This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing thru the pantry,” explained the award-winning actor, artist and producer. “I love this body, but I wanna FEEL better. No more midnight muffins …this is it! Imma get in the BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!!!!!”

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air will document his return to physical glory with a new YouTube series called Best Shape of My Life.


It’s okay if you are a little out of shape after a year of COVID-19-related stay-at-home orders and restrictions. It just means that you’re like Will Smith. It’s estimated that 42% of the adults in the U.S. are like Will Smith and have gained weight during the pandemic crisis. There are reasons why phrases like Quarantine 15 became a thing soon after the coronavirus pandemic began turning people’s lives upside down. Since March of last year, Americans have reportedly consumed lots of “processed shelf-stable foods, calorie-dense comfort foods, alcohol and takeout orders.”


Fret not, however, because you can get your groove back and get back in shape, just like Will Smith. Since you’re like Will Smith, you should listen to this playlist we made for you. It only features one song crafted by Will Smith, however it is full of bangers that should match the intensity of your post-COVID workout.


Featuring anthems from Young Thug, Duke Deuce, J. Cole, Benny The Butcher and others, our Groove Back like Will Smith playlist was curated to soundtrack your post-pandemic workout. Summer is almost here and the country is reopening, so the timing is right to take a workout routine seriously.


Reach those summer body goals while listening to body-rocking beats crafted by top tier producers such as Southside (YSL’s “Slatty”), Wheezy (Playboi Carti’s “Go2DaMoon”), Tay Keith (DJ Khaled’s “Every Chance I Get”) and others.
