Kanye West Skipped Grammys To Record With Will Smith In Brazil

By Sowmya Krishnamurthy

Kanye West definitely took a pass on Grammys night, despite snagging several awards for his work with Jay-Z on Watch the Throne. We know that 'Ye and his girl Kim were enjoying a getaway in Brazil, but from new photos that have been circulating online, looks like Yeezy was actually in the studio working on something special with Will Smith also.

In an accompanying video, Ye can be seen enjoying the drumming in the local Samba style too. Could a Ye and Will Samba album be far off? Kanye has been in Brazil for the past few days with his pregnant girlfriend Kim Kardashian. E! shared that Kanye seemingly gave Kim a romantic gift (jewelry perhaps?) and the duo smooched it up all over Rio de Janeiro. Kim even flashed a Jesus-like pose in front of the famous Christ the Redeemer statue.

The parents-to-be have been enjoying their couple time with a whirlwind trip down south. The pair was snapped in full on PDA mode, holding hands and smiling in Rio this week. Meanwhile, Jay-Z was on hand at the Grammy Awards to accept a few trophies on their behalf.
