JADEN SMITH’S ‘ICON’ GOES GOLD

Jaden Smith is a gold-certified “Icon.”

The Recording Industry Association of America awarded Smith with a gold certification after his SYRE single moved 500,000 units. Roc Nation President Benny Pough and President of A&R Tyran “TyTy” Smith presented Smith with the award.

“I’m so happy that you guys allow me to be just me and give that to the world,” said Jaden. “That’s all I ever wanted to do.”

Following the presentation, Jaden celebrated on the red carpet at Monday’s Met Gala. He showed up to fashion’s big night with his gold plaque in hand.

During a recent visit to “The Tonight Show,” Smith revealed that “Icon” almost didn’t get released as a single. “That wasn’t supposed to be the single,” he explained. “I did a whole production for a whole ‘nother video that was supposed to be the video. Last second, we got the edit back and they were like, ‘We can’t even see your face rapping. We didn’t shoot it correctly. It can’t come out.’”

In February, Jaden’s famous father Will Smith celebrated his son’s 100 million streams by making his own version of the video. Big Willie’s parody wound up going viral.

Last year, Jaden dropped his debut SYRE. Now, he is prepping the follow-up ERYS, which is expected this year.
