Jaden Smith approaches music in a new way, with bold beats and powerful lyrics in “SYRE”. He used his music as an opportunity to express his wildest imaginations, as well as difficult thoughts. Smith brings in a new element of strange ideas working together perfectly.

Smith has designed clothes and acted, as well as made music a new passion. Coming from being known for his talented father to making a name for himself, Smith has proven to never back down from what he wants. Although many would consider his use of rap rhythm mixed with trap beats strange, Smith uses it as inspiration to break boundaries.

Smith collaborated with A$AP Rocky and Raury while perfecting this album, and referenced influential artists within the songs. Smith cited Kanye West’s “The Life of Pablo” and Frank Ocean’s “Blonde” in his songs as strong influences in his album.

After three years of perfecting this album, Smith released “SYRE” on Nov. 17. You can listen to   “SYRE” on Apple music as well as Spotify.
