    Jaden Smith released "Batman" the second single off his debut album Syre. The song was simultaneously released with a very strange music video which is also what he did for his last single "Fallen." Jaden Smith's free-spirited, outside-the-box thinking shows in all his artistic endeavors, especially in his music.

    In the song and video, Jaden plays the role of Bruce Wayne, the millionaire-turned-superhero Batman, but he puts a spin on the classic hero. Instead of donning an all black suit to fight in, it is all white. Those who are familiar with his music know that Jaden and his friends often refer to lame people "jokers," so the Batman references make sense.

    The instrumental of this track is somewhat simple but ultimately entertaining. During the hook of the song he shouts "Batman" over and over in the tune of Drake's "Jumpman." "Batman, Batman, Batman. Joker just put me on acid. You on the wave like a Maverick. You need to make something happen."

    Syre is expected to be released by the end of this year.
