Walking away empty-handed from the Academy Awards might faze some people. Will Smith is not some people.

The former Fresh Prince is already onto his next project and taking it back to where it all began: the recording studio. Smith’s next album, which is still untitled, will hit stores on June 25.

Hot on the heels of that release, Big Willie will reprise his role as Agent J in this summer’s “Men in Black 2,” the sequel to the 1997 blockbuster. Two songs from Smith’s forthcoming LP will be featured in the movie. One, “Nod Ya Head,” will also be the first single. The other has not yet been revealed.

“Nod Ya Head” marks the first new material from Smith since 1999’s Willennium, which featured “Will2K” and “Freakin’ It.”
