Jaden Smith Recruits Nicky Jam for New “Icon (Remix)”
Jaden Smith's "Icon" record has already reached gold status, and while he's still publicly celebrating the original song's success, he's already dropping a new remix. Latin rapper Nicky Jam hops on the young rapper's hit single for a new version, which features him rhyming in Spanish, while Smith handles things in English.
The music video finds the two hip-hop stars traveling to Cartagena, Colombia, where they are followed around by a massive crowd of people that watch them dance in an empty alleyway. While Jaden shows off his signature moon walk, which blew fans away last year at the 2017 Rolling Loud festival in Southern California, Jam hypes things up by tapping into his Latino roots.
According to him, Jam was able to land the feature spot on the "Icon" remix thanks to Will Smith. The rapper previously told Billboard that the veteran actor helped correlate the connection after Will admitted he was a fan of Nicky's "X" record with J. Balvin and posted a video with the song on Instagram.
This isn't the first remix that Nicky has hopped on, as he was previously featured on Post Malone's "Rockstar" Latin remix with Ozuna back in December 2017.
