Will Smith collaborated with DJ Khaled for “Friend Like Me,” a song from the live-action remake of Aladdin.

Smith took on a family-friendly, Fresh Prince-style flow for the song. Smith, who plays the Genie in Disney’s live-action reboot of the animated film, puts a modern spin on the track and raps, “You can wish to be rich / You can wish to be tall / You can wish away the haters, you just give me a call,” raps Smith before telling Aladdin to “flex on ’em, shine on ’em, style on ’em, slide on ’em.”

Khaled’s hypeman vocals are on the track including his signature ad-libs.
