Nicky Jam and Will Smith teamed up this summer and performed at the closing ceremony for the soccer World Cup at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium. Their link up, as well as their collaborative track, "Live It Up" formed a lasting relationship since Nicky was seemingly in Los Angeles for a casting call for Bad Boys 3. Nicky didn't admit those words exactly, but when TMZ suggested that that's what he was in town for, he simply told the paparazzi that he's smart for guessing that. 

As for his acting chops, Nicky's confident that he's the most experienced Reggaeton acting star in the industry right now having starred in xXx: Return of Xander Cage with more lined up in the future. "The best? I can't say I'm the best," he added. 

Will and Martin Lawrence cheerfully announced the third installment of the film at the top of the month posting a video to the Gram' of both stars in Miami, proving that it's really real. "It’s been a LOOOONG time Coming. But now it’s Here!" Will caption the video.
