Since joining Instagram earlier this year, Will Smith has peppered doses of humor and wisdom throughout his posts. On Tuesday (June 5), he spiced things up a notch when he unveiled his flavorful verse for Jaden Smith and Nicky Jam’s “Icon (Remix).”
In the one-minute clip, Smith flexes about his iconic status, while also flaunting his Spanish-speaking skills. “Boy, you know why you was an icon living/ You was born from an icon living/ Messed around married me an icon living/ Tequila, then we made some icon children,” he buoyantly rapped. In the Instagram caption, Will acknowledges being a huge fan of the original bilingual remix and paid homage to his son with an endearing caption. Last month, Jaden nabbed Jam for the original remix of “Icon,” which was shot in the streets of Colombia.
“I’ve been wanting to get on this FOREVER!! You Smashed this one, Jaden! @c.syresmith @nickyjampr,” Will Smith wrote. Earlier this year, Will hilariously re-created Jaden’s “Icon” video once the song reached more than 100 million Spotify streams. “Congrats on 100,000,000 @Spotify streams, Jaden! @c.syresmith It is a Delicious Gift to a Parent to Admire his children. Keep Doin’ You!”
