Longtime friends Harry Hudson and Jaden Smith contemplate a love lost during a pink-hued sunset on a deserted patch of land in their music video for “Just Slide,” which the duo released Wednesday (Feb. 20).
The R&B-tinged pop song sees singer/songwriter Hudson and multifaceted Smith reminisce about a lover they can’t seem to reach, so they ask them to “just slide” — wordplay that can be associated with the common social media term “slide into the DMs” — if said love interest “feels something” too.
“If you ever need a friend, we can make it intimate/ Girl, I know you got a man, but we only talkin’/ Love when you vent to me, I’ll be honest/ Hate saying bye to you, it’s the hardest/ Oh she’s a goddess, one day they’ll tell our story, I promise,” Smith raps on the third verse.
The Mike Dean- and Jesse Jackson-produced song was released back in November and precedes new music from Hudson scheduled to drop this year.
