When they’re not wearing matching outfits, hanging out with the younger, less important Kardashian siblings, whipping their hair back and forth or wading into film careers, sometimes Willow and Jaden Smith, the children of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, record songs together. Their latest collaborative effort, "Kite," is a moody, space-cadet jam with spare production from Téo that seems to have resulted from Jaden listening to good kid, M.A.A.D. city a lot of times.
After navigating the spacey landscape and talking about landing on Mars, Jaden professes his love for a girl he wants to chill with "after curfew" and promises to respect her, which recalls his dad’s innocuous and parent-friendly rap career. He later goes on to rhyme "you eat a panini, ’cause baby you can" with "I am your genie / ’cause I am your man" and, relating to the genie theme, "Fly as Aladdin / I am so cool, you can call me Alaskan." His sister is an effective counterpart, coming in to emphasize the word "lost" a lot and assure us, confidently, of her presence, repeating, "Lil’ mama got bars." Have a listen below.
