If you think it must be hard living up to your parents’ expectations, try being Jaden Smith for a day.
Fortunately, the young actor/musician (and Will Smith-Jada Pinkett Smith progeny) has some serious talent and a friend or two in high places.
Fourteen-year-old Jaden, who released his first mixtape, The Cool Cafe, in 2012, just debuted the music video for his single, “Hello,” and it’s got all the things we’ve come to love about the Smith family’s music — clean lyrics, fun rhymes, and a little humor — in addition to some serious old-school beats. The video, directed by former Hannah Montana star Moises Arias, shows Jaden hanging out in NYC and generally being cooler than any 8th grader should be.
Sure, it may be impossible to live up to a masterpiece like “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It,” but it it looks like Jaden’s giving it the old college try.
