Jaden Smith is following in father Will Smith's footsteps by rapping on a new record for the soundtrack to his Karate Kid remake.

The 11-year-old actor - who stars alongside Jackie Chan in the remake of the classic movie, produced by his parents - duets with Justin Bieber on the track Never Say Never, in which teen heartthrob Justin sings the verse and chorus.

Jaden then joins in with a rap saying: "He's bigger than me, taller than me, older than me and stronger than me... but he ain't on a JB song with me. I've been trying to chill baby, trying to style with a thrill, no pun intended I was raised by the power of Will."

The video shows clips from the film in which Jaden's character learns to defend himself against older bullies after his family move to Beijing, cut with footage of him and Justin in the recording studio.

As well as showing off their dancing and body-popping skills, the boys sit back and watch the movie clips and eat sweets together, admiring their work.

Will Smith began his career as part of hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince, before getting his own TV show The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air and going on to become a film star.

Jaden had his debut film role opposite his dad in The Pursuit Of Happyness in 2006.
