Jaden Smith Takes Over New York With ‘Hello’ Video
Jaden Smith may only be 14 years old, but he’s looking a little more mature these days, especially in his new video for ‘Hello.’
Filmed in black-and-white, Smith takes us on a trip throughout New York City while he raps to his special girl, hoping she’ll give him a chance. But instead of the more pleading romantic, he shows off his swagger with his smooth lyrics.
“I like to keep it mellow / I like to make friends and make trends / A tender / Young school dances, young romances, girl / This is your chance, it’s a long shot,” he rhymes while rocking a MSFTS hooding from his own clothing line.
But as the song goes on, he talks about growing up, especially as a child celebrity in the business. “Fans always tryna wave so Moises is getting nauseous / We at the shows, tryna make a mosh pit / Living life so exotic, I’m not tryna be obnoxious / And we tryna paint so now we go into Josh’s,” he raps.
The beat is reminiscent of a track from the early days of hip-hop, which Smith attempts to represent proudly despite his young age. It’s obvious that he’s serious about being legit in the rap game, and we’re looking forward to see what he comes up with next.
