If you haven't heard the song that Jaden Smith released on his sister Willow's Soundcloud this Monday, you need to stop what you're doing and listen to it right now. Otherwise, you just won't understand. For your convenience, here it is:
It's hard to say what genre "Blue Ocean V19" is, but it heavily samples Justin Timberlake
's "Blue Ocean Floor" and is written in the same vein as a classic Jaden Smith tweet. That is, it's a mix of incoherent and babbling rhymes and some awkward DIY R&B. The 16-year-old raps, "Man, I met a girl at Coachella / I like her but you know I couldnt tell her / 'Cause she has her own fella / And I met her blow dealer / He told me he was a whole seller / And Im fly as propellers / And its raining umbrellas."
Celebrities' children often amount to the best things. Look at Miley Cyrus, Liza Minelli, Charlie Sheen. Now, there's Jaden Smith. Sure, we loved him in The Pursuit of Happyness
, but Jaden's almost all grown up now, and has since become a Twitter icon
, an orgonite
, and an aspiring musician.
Yesterday, Jaden released another track called "Trophy V6," that is only slightly less weird than "Blue Ocean," and is set to appear on his upcoming mixtape Cool Tape, Vol. 2
. Jaden, we're counting the moments.
