Last year, Jaden Smith blessed the masses with CTV3: Cool Tape Vol. 3, a 17-track offering that saw a couple of notable assists from Justin Bieber and Raury. Last month, the MSFTS star celebrated CTV3’s one-year anniversary with an updated version dubbed the Day Tripper’s Edition, which kept some original cuts while remixing or completely replacing others to essentially birth a whole new project. In addition to the aforementioned, Joey BADA$$, Babe Rainbow, and ¿Téo? provide contributions to the re-imagined effort.
“Super soak, cannonball, hittin’ roads, always packin’ different clothes, super soak, got you dancin’ in your room makin’ videos, there you are, sound alert, even when the city’s close, think I’m ‘bout to fall in love with you because it’s summer, day trippin’, plane switchin’, when we pull up it be way different, lemonade tinted lens, we ain’t playin’ with ‘em, when I look up at the sky, I only see the vision...”
The accompanying visual matches the song’s vibes with beautiful colors and footage of Jaden and his crew living it up in different outside locations. There’s one scene showing him performing in front of different vehicles, people, and a bed of flowers, while another sees him mobbing heavy in and on top of a tricked-out school bus, complete with messages emblazoned on it such as “THE STUDY OF MYSTICAL STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS.”
Prior to the latest from his well-received Cool Tape series, Jaden liberated his second studio LP ERYS, the sequel to his 2017 debut album SYRE. Released in 2019, that body of work saw 17 cuts with a slew of contributions from A$AP Rocky, Kid Cudi, Lido, Trinidad James, fellow talent and sister Willow, and Tyler, The Creator.
