Icon (Reggaeton Remix) | Jaden Smith x Nicky Jam x Will Smith
After Will Smith posted a small video of his verse to his son’s hit, “Icon,” it turns out that this wasn’t just a personal family rendition of the track. The full length version was dropped off this past Friday and it’s jamming. Not really surprising since the original version of this song was a hit and pretty successful. The reggaeton remix was actually released a couple weeks ago, so this version just adds Will to it & I feel like the production has more of a Spanish sound, still pretty smart. Nicky Jam is a reggaeton artist that is not new to the game so his fanbase will likely gravitate towards the song, especially with the change to the production to give it that signature reggaeton sound and then old school Will fans will definitely be excited by his contribution. Jaden’s debut album, Syre, was a pretty good album and although I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, I feel like I remember being pleasantly surprised by it. I’m sure this new version will have many people doubling back to check out the project, but he also has a follow up album, Erys, scheduled to be released next month on July 8th. We’ll get a chance then to see if Jaden can keep it going with the sophomore release.
