Y’all! The “Bel-Air” cast can SANG! Jabari Banks, who plays Will on the hit series, flexed his vocals on a new episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Hear him hit the right notes, plus BOMB vocals from some of his talented castmates inside…
Can we say multi-talented?
When we think of the cast of a hit TV show, we often associate them with their acting skills and the characters they bring to life on screen. Well, the cast of Peacock’s “Bel-Air” not only has impressive acting skills, but they can sing as well.
From Jabari Banks, who plays the lead role of Will, to the supporting cast members like Coco Jones, Olly Sholotan, and Simone Joy Jones, the “Bel-Air” cast is a group of multi-talented individuals.
During a recent appearance on Jimmy Fallon’s game show “That’s My Jam,” Jabari Banks gave audiences a glimpse of his impressive singing abilities. He was joined by his teammate, rapper Quavo, as they battled it out against rappers French Montana and Chance the Rapper in a series of music-themed challenges on the late night TV show.
The “Bel-Air” star, who also plays piano, took on Usher’s classic 2004 hit “Yeah,” but with a twist – he had to sing it to the tune of Ariana Grande’s “No Tears Left to Cry.”
Watch him kill it below:
One Twitter user shared the clip and was amazed that he could sing. She also gave Gen-Z their props. Ha!

He also plays the piano. Which he does often on the show. (reminiscent of the first episode of Fresh Prince)

Jabari also played “Slay It, Don’t Spray It” with Quavo, French, and Chance. Check it out below:
Speaking of vocals…
Coco Jones, who plays Hilary Banks on the hit series, stopped by the “Jennifer Hudson Show” to debut her sultry single “ICU” and she sounded AH-MAZING! She effortlessly showcased her vocal prowess and delivered a performance that will leave you begging for more. Check it out above.
During her chat with host Jennifer Hudson, Coco, 25, shared that she often gets mistaken for the EGOT winner, and she views it as an hour. JHud confirmed that she also deals with the same mix-up and even suggested the idea of Coco playing her in a biopic. Of course, Coco is totally down for it. Watch their conversation below:
Coco’s appearance on JHud’s show was a full circle moment for the actress. In June 2012, Coco, a former Disney star, tweeted, “Everybody says I look like Jennifer Hudson :), yall really think so ?! I would luv to sing with her.”
Everybody says I look like Jennifer Hudson :), yall really think so ?! I would luv to sing with her.
