LISTEN: Will Smith Takes On Son Jaden’s Song ‘Icon’ With Own Nicky Jam Remix

 

Close

Will Smith shows off his rap skills in his rendition of Jaden's song, "Icon." The actor also sings in Spanish in the Nicky Jam remix.

Smith shared a clip featuring his son's "Icon" music video via his Instagram account on Tuesday. Halfway through it, Smith is seen singing the lines to "Icon" while at the recording studio.

The video also features animation, throwback family photos, and a snap of Smith's wife, Jada Pinkett Smith at an awards show. Smith starts to rap in Spanish, and he does so impressively.

In Smith's video caption, he acknowledged that he is a huge fan of the original bilingual remix. "Icon" was released last year.

In February, Smith also recreated his son's "Icon" music video after the song reached 100 million Spotify streams. At the time, he also congratulated Jaden on his success.

Jaden's Fashion Choices

Other than his remix of "Icon," Smith also made headlines recently after his wife had admitted to always being in constant conflict with her husband on how they should raise their children.

Pinkett Smith gushed over Jaden's fashion choices, but not all of them are approved by his dad.

"He has his feelings on that for sure. I remember Will calling me and being like, 'Have you talked about this with Jaden and him wearing a skirt?' And I said, 'Yeah I have. He's pretty happy about it,'" said Pinkett Smith.

The doting mom said that Jaden told her why he wanted to wear skirts during some events and shows. The 19-year-old wants to encourage people to think out of the box and not feel like doing what they want will result in being bullied by other people.

"I wore the skirts so I could look fly. That's why I wore the skirts, so everyone would say, 'He's an innovator. His head's in a different place," said Jaden.

Will Smith To Release New Music

In related news, fans of Smith should not have to wait very long for the release of his own song. Last month, he announced that he has new music on the way.

Before becoming a critically acclaimed actor, Smith worked as a singer. Some of the tracks he released are "Gettin' Jiggy With It," "Men In Black," "Miami," "Wild Wild West," "Just the Two of Us," "Switch," "Nod Ya Head," "Party Starter," "Freakin It," and more.

However, Smith went on a long hiatus from releasing music to focus on his acting career.
