It was weird enough when we saw the paparazzi shots of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian sharing a hotel with Will Smith in Rio... directly below him. But now we've learned that Yeezy and Will have recorded a song together while in Brazil, and we don't know which way is up anymore.

The two friends took a break from Carnival to hit the studio together, and the studio's owner, DJ Batutinha, shared details about what they recorded. "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 sound of the funk better.They thought we could all work out something together and launch this new project."

Kanye and Will are planning on finishing their new project in the U.S. Until we know what it's all about, we're resisting every urge for a "Gettin' Jiggy Wit It" joke.
