If you’re one of the few who hasn’t seen Will Smith‘s latest movie ‘After Earth‘, let us be the ones to tell you that you’re seriously missing out on a great flick.
Now, in agreeing with that sentiment, the public have not only rewarded the cool spirited philanthropist with $29,700,000 at the Box Office since the movie dropped, but with renewed interest in his 2005 smash hit, ‘Switch’.
Good news below…
After peaking at #4 in the UK back in ’05, the last week has seen the number rise 17 spots in the nation’s Urban Chart, outselling Rihanna’s ‘Stay‘ and Labrinth‘s ‘Beneath Your Beautiful’ in the last seven days.
In doing so, it now occupies the #15 spot.
Spearheaded by the gargantuan campaign launched in the ‘Earth’s aid, ‘Switch’s UK chart win comes after it was certified Gold in the USA for sales of over 500,000 units and after it peaked at #1 in Australia and Canada while soaring to #4 on Billboard’s Pop Songs tally.
Will’s return to the British charts comes three years after his daughter Willow saw her Tim Carter produced jam ‘Whip My Hair‘ certified Platinum in the US, when it reached sales of 1 million units, and 20 years after his wife Jada Pinkett starred in the cult classic, ‘Menace II Society’- starring as Ronnie alongside ‘The Displaced Person’ star Samuel L. Jackson.
Congratulations Mr. Smith!
