Will Smith recreates son Jaden's music video for 'Icon'
UPI News Service, 02/11/2018
Will Smith congratulated his son Jaden for passing 100 million streams on Spotify for his album SYRE on Instagram by recreating the 19-year-old's music video for "Icon."
The proud dad is seen spoofing the "Icon" video by wearing an outfit similar to Jaden's from the original clip -- a jean jacket and a gold chain -- and by rapping the song's opening lyrics while emerging from a car.
Smith also unsuccessfully dances around the car in his slippers and attempts to keep a grill inside his mouth.
"I'm proud of you baby," Smith says. "Congrats. I love you." Jaden commented on his dad's video stating, "Dad this is the funniest thing I've ever seen in my life. You're the best father anyone could ask for. Thank you for allowing me to express myself even when I take it to far sometimes. I love you more than you will ever know because you taught me how to love. Also thank you for having the best Instagram on planet earth."
Jaden released SYRE in November where it reached No. 24 on the Billboard 200 chart. "Icon" as a single has reached 30 million listens on Spotify.
