Jaden Smith has emerged from the shadows of the Internet and bestowed a new single upon us called “GHOST” featuring Christian Rich and produced by Rich, FnZ, and HWLS. The track comes with an accompanying visual that shows the rapper decked out in a fresh fit and hitting the streets of Tokyo with a colorful crew by his side. The description for the video includes the following caption: “Erys Will Return.” In an interview with The FADER, Jaden explained how JAY-Z has influenced the direction that he wants to take his music career.
“After I released my last album, I wanted to take a next step further and evolve,” he said. “I decided to talk to Hov and he told me he thought the album was cool and he said as I got older I would space out my verses more and I’d say more with less. That’s the total inspiration behind my next album. He’s also the head honcho at the label. Starting a record label MSFTS just did it that would only be possible with Roc Nation and Hov.”
Aside from this song, the 19-year-old rapper has only put out a few remixes of “Icon” which is featured on his 2017 debut album SYRE. Of course, nothing will ever measure up to Will Smith‘s remix with Nicky Jam.
