When Jaden Smith isn’t appearing in Baz Luhrmann’s Netflix series “The Get Down” or confounding people with his enigmatic Twitter presence, he’s releasing new music videos that feature him vomiting in the Wild West. Today, Smith dropped the video for his new song “Fallen,” which he co-directed alongside Miles Cable, that features him roaming around a Wild West town while he occasionally vomits and croons lyrics that reference bell hooks and profess that “love is a strong word.” The video was shot at the same ranch as the HBO original series “Westworld.” The end of the video promotes a new project from Smith entitled “Syre.” Watch the video below.
Smith first rose to fame in the 2006 film “The Pursuit of Happyness” as Christopher Jr., the son of homeless salesman Chris Gardner, played by his father Will Smith. He also starred in the 2010 remake of “The Karate Kid” alongside Jackie Chan and the 2013 film “After Earth,” about a young boy stranded on Earth a millenium after catastrophic events forced all humanity to escape. Smith also started his own clothing/lifestyle brand called MSFTSrep, has released two mixtapes and an EP, and was featured on the Justin Bieber song “Never Say Never.”
The second half of the first season of “The Get Down” will be released on Netflix sometime in 2017.
