Jaden Smith unleashed his power-packed ERYS album on Friday (July 5), a 17-track vision quest with guest spots from Tyler, the Creator, Kid Cudi, A$AP Rocky, Willow, Syre and Trinidad James. A hard-hitting combo of grinding beats, moody crooning, ethereal production, hardcore punk-like rock tunes and in-your-face rhymes, the collection is Smith’s second full-length and the follow-up to 2017’s SYRE.
Smith will be on the road this fall with Tyler, the Creator, and he is slated to portray Kanye West in an upcoming Showtime series. Speaking recently on Zane Lowe’s World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1, Smith said the new album definitely has two distinct personalities. “It’s kind of like the angel and devil on my shoulder, and Syre’s the angel,” he said, referring to the feature on “Again.” “That was me telling the world, ‘Yo, this album’s gonna be something you haven’t seen from me.'”
