Jaden Smith is an American rapper, singer, songwriter and fashion designer. The son of two long-term Hollywood stars, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, is also known as an actor.
His first own musical release was ”The Cool Cafe”, a mixtape from 2012. Few years later, when Smith decided to focus on music and distance himself from the film industry, he released the sequel titled ”Cool Tape Vol. 2”. After that started a three-year journey towards his debut album ”Syre” that was released in 2017. ”Icon” was released as a single on the same day as the album and it reached the third place on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart. The album has only two featuring acts – one of them, A$AP Rocky, also to perform at Blockfest. Smith then teased and later released (first exclusively on Instagram on his 20th birthday) ”Syre: The Electric Album” which is a guitar-centric rework of the album.
In 2018, with new music such as singles ”GHOST” and ”GOKU” and his third mixtape ”The Sunset Tapes: A Cool Tape Story”, Smith was announced as an opening act to J. Cole‘s KOD Tour alongside Young Thug and EarthGang and performed for the first time at Lollapalooza. This year he is to perform at some of the biggest festivals such as Coachella and of course for the first time here in Finland.
The young artist, that is also interested in fashion, has started his own clothing and lifestyle brand called MSFTSrep. Smith has in fact been labeled by GQ as “in a league of his own” what it comes to fashion and a “superstar who has taken fashion to an entirely different level”.
