Will Smith praised the 10-year-old for an outstanding rendition of the song on her guitar in his caption. He also made sure to tag others to add something of their own to the collaboration. 

The song was a major hit since it hit the stores in 1997. It was the fourth track on the album, Big Willie Style. Along with that, Smith also attained the No.20 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1998. Following it, he released ‘Willennium’, ‘Born to Reign’, and ‘Lost and Found.’ He achieved US number-one singles with hits like ‘Wild Wild West’ and ‘Gettin’ Jiggy With It.’ The Oscar winner is also a four Grammy winner.
