Jaden Talks Inspiration Behind ‘Roses,’ Music With Willow & More | Billboard News

After stepping away from music for three years, Jaden recently released “Roses.” He shares if he will have more music coming out, working with his sister, Willow, and more!

Jaden:
I know you felt that, you know, I feel like that’s it. That’s the answer is in there. You know stay tuned type s–t.

Tetris Kelly:
Hey, what’s up? It’s Tetris with Billboard News hanging out with Jaden Smith. How’s it going, man?

Jaden:
It’s going really good, bro.

Tetris Kelly:
I’m appreciating the vibes that you got going on there, playing the music, setting the tone. What’s going on today?

Jaden:
You know, it’s just a normal day in Sunset City, man.

Tetris Kelly:
Not a normal day for me, man. I like the vibes. So talk to me about why after three years, a break from music, you decided now was the time to make a return. 

Jaden:
Just because I was sad, honestly. And I wanted to share that.

Tetris Kelly:
I mean, I think that’s a great thing as an artist that you were able to, you know, notice that you had some emotions that you wanted to get out. So is it more difficult to kind of process your emotions through music? Or is it easier for you that way?

Jaden:
I think it’s easier. I think it’s a lot easier. You know what I mean? Like, just to say something through music — I think it’s a lot easier than to just straight up saying it, you know.

Tetris Kelly: 
I can definitely understand, but you obviously have a lot of spotlight on you with you and your family. Is it hard for you to be kind of so honest and personal in a song like “Roses” when you’re so used to having the spotlight?

Jaden:
[Singing] That’s really the best answer that I could come up with, for that particular question.

Keep watching for more!
