Los Angeles: Rapper Kanye West and singer-actor Will Smith recorded a track together while they were in Brazil.

The ‘Stronger’ rapper and the ‘Men In Black’ star recently met in Brazil for the Rio Carnival and while they were there, they went into the studio together to lay down a new track.

The duo met in the studio of DJ Batutinha and decided on a "funky" tune, which pays tribute to their time in the South American country, reports contactmusic.com.

"Kanye was keen to get to learn more about the funk in Rio and a DJ friend of mine referred him to me. Will and him went to the studio to get to know the sonority of the funk better," Batutinha told Brazilian website Ego.
