Jaden Smith has never been one to shy away from expressing himself through his art. His first two albums, SYRE and ERYS, are the perfect representations of a new, young artist -- bold and full of potential yet unpolished. In his latest effort, CTV3: Cool Tape Vol. 3, Jaden shakes off the kinks and shows growth, especially with the colorful, summer-like feel of the album.
In the music video for "Photograph," the next single off CTV3: Cool Tape Vol. 3, Jaden takes a step away from the cheery vibe of his last visual, "Cabin Fever.” Putting on his director's hat, he tugs on his viewers' heartstrings with a marvelous display of sadness and hopelessness.
His newest clip features him in the middle of a beach, pondering a broken relationship as he wanders across the yellow sands holding a photograph of himself and an ex. Viewers then see Jaden go through the motions, like screaming into the sky, letting the suffocating waves crash into his limp body, sinking himself to the bottom of the ocean and more.
