Earlier this week, Jaden Smith shared an Instagram post with a preview of a new song. Today, on his 18th birthday, Smith finally shares the full version of that same song—a new track titled “LABOR V2.”
This new single features a classical arrangement of instrumentation with violins at its core before introducing drums as a crucial addition to the tranquil rhythm. After a minute and a half of just instrumentals, Smith enters with a relaxed flow that allows his words to take the lead. On “LABOR V2” he discusses the problems of pop culture, the unimportance of material things, stereotypes, social issues and more—all in under six minutes.
