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.

Rosalía, the flamenco-R’n’B tornado knighted by Pedro Almodóvar

Music Rosalía won’t be slowing global warming down. Whether it’s in her music videos where she dances with a fiery passion or on her smouldering album which marries edgy R'n'B with traditional flamenco, she scorches everything that comes her way. Pedro Almodóvar and Pharrell Williams have already succumbed, and it won’t be long before the rest of the planet does too. Rosalía won’t be slowing global warming down.
