Jaden Smith’s “Icon”

Jaden Smith just came out with a new album called “SYRE” along with three music videos. Just looking at the album artwork his aesthetic is dripping out, as a dreamy poppy but hard album. In the music video for “Icon” we see Jaden in front of a fancy car, with a beautiful sky (that matches the sky in his album artwork). “I need you to listen to the vision” is a line in the song which is almost like you guys need to watch this and you can see what I’m talking about, what the idea for this album is. It’s a very simple music video for a song that is all about Jaden. He’s talking about making his clothing company, being at an award show, getting his heartbroken, etc. He is famous, but that is not because of his parents, he is talented and knows what he’s doing. He’s got a vision and won’t let anyone sway him away from what he’s established for himself, he’s not scared and you can tell that from his music video. It’s amazing seeing younger kids pursuing their dreams and establishing a vision, a look for themselves.

It’s the first day of fall, but you wouldn’t know it thanks to an 80-plus-degree day outside. We are all anxiously awaiting for our cover star, Quincy Brown, to arrive, as we are told that he’ll be walking in any minute now.

A few minutes later, he arrives smiling with a small entourage in tow. The room springs to action—looks are presented, makeup and hair gets underway, music blares from the sound system, Brown starts an Instagram Live feed.

Although he is an attractive guy who could be linked to many bad chicks, and he comes from a well-to-do background, none of that has gone to his head. He is young, but he’s got an old soul and a ferocious work ethic.

Quincy knows what he does and does not want. When his stylist brings him a fur coat to wear in one of the editorials, he kindly lets her know that isn’t going to happen.  When the music was too loud during our talk, he asks the manager to turn it down.  And when he wants to get behind-the-scenes footage of the shoot, he uses a film camera because it’s conducive to capturing what he says is “the true candidness of not knowing what you look like in a moment in time.”
