Will Smith is back in a big way.

The actor, 47, is set to do his first musical performance in years at the Latin Grammys Awards, PEOPLE has learned.

"Performing at the Latin Grammy Awards is a huge honor for me," Smith said in a statement.

"I'll be surrounded by so many talented artists whose music has such profound global impact. I can't think of a more perfect place for Bomba Estereo and I to perform 'Fiesta Remix' for the first time onstage."



Earlier this month, Smith released a video for the bombastic song on Facebook. For the remix, the four-time Grammy winner raps verses in both English and Spanish.

"Fiesta" is up for record of the year at the 16th Annual Latin Grammys, which takes place Nov. 19 in Las Vegas. (It airs on Univision from 8-11 p.m. ET/PT.)

In a recent interview, Smith revealed that he has been back in the studio.

"I'm pretty much poppin' in the studio everyday and I'm looking for artists to collaborate with," Smith said. "I've probably recorded 30 songs. I have six or seven that I really like."
