Jaden Smith wanders in a ghost town in new “Fallen” video

The young American superstar Jaden Smith ends up in a Western decor in his new “Fallen” video.

Only 18 years old and already a phenomenon, Will Smith's son Jaden continues his rise to the top. After being spotted in The Pursuit of Happyness and Karate Kid in 2010, he now keeps releasing pop/R'n'B singles like Fallen, his new track. With some surprisingly mature and atmospheric vibes, he unveils a sound that doesn't come this far from the great Frank Ocean and Kid Cudi. The song comes with a video co-directed by the young American artist himself, side-by-side with the director Miles Cable. We can see him wander at noon in a ghostly western Decor, after what seemed to be a severe drinking party. Hard not to think about Westword, the neo-western tv-show aired on HBO this month.
