Will Smith‘s autograph video on Oct. 13 got sidetracked after fans pointed out the music playing in the background.
In the recording, Smith signed blank pages that would be added to certain copies of his upcoming memoir titled “Will” while listening a song by his daughter Willow Smith. The track “Meet Me at Our Spot” features Tyler Cole and The Anxiety.
The actor claimed the purpose behind the video was to show his followers that they would get a personalized autograph from him when receiving a copy of the book. He said, “So y’all could see I’m signing my book for real. … Jokers be fake signing their books or having their Uncle Rodney sign them.”
Smith also added that he had his signature legally changed from Will Smith to “just Will” while showing his followers what the autograph would look like.”I had my signature legally changed to just Will. It’s like a W, there’s a little bit of an S in there.”
As the clip wrapped, the 53-year-old showed off that he could write his signature without looking at the paper, just like Whoopi Goldberg. “Whoopi Goldberg can sign her signature without looking. I saw her do that one time.”
When fans began to view the video, many of them mentioned how they liked the fact that Willow’s music was playing.
“Aww Willow song in the background.”
“I love that Willow’s song is playing in the background…”
“I hear Willow.”
“Nice touch with the music @willsmith.”
“It’s Willow song in the background for me.”
Despite Smith’s support of Willow’s music, she disclosed during a 2018 episode of “Red Table Talk” how she had to forgive her father for being highly critical of her first single, “Whip My Hair.”
“I definitely had to forgive you and Daddy for that whole ‘Whip My Hair’ thing,” she said then. “It was mostly Daddy, because he was so harsh at certain times. It was a couple of years, honestly. Trying to regain trust for not feeling like I was being listened to or like no one cared how I felt.”
